Most wins?

Glenn Healy mentioned before the Wings-Maple Leafs game that Lidstrom has won more games than any other player in NHL history, apparently 917 games. Is this true?

Does anyone have a list of the players who have won the most games? Who has the highest win percentage?

I've never seen the official list, but I know that Scott Stevens used to be the all-time leader, and it was Mark Messier before him.

Pnep has posted a list on here before (I can't find the link) of the leaders based on estimated wins using the percentage of games a player played in a season compared to the number of games his team won which would likely be close to the official numbers.

I wouldn't be surprised if someone passes Lidstrom within the next decade. The current format of every game having a winner sure makes it easier.

I think Chelios passed Stevens before Lidstrom did.

Before this season thus:
Gordie Howe 1204, Chelios 904, Scott Stevens 892, Lidstrom 878, Bourque 826, Coffey 802.
Howe also apparantly leads the losses category, at least among the players on the list.
(It seems the data is "adjusted".)
