What's your lists?
1 Messier (my favorite all time Oiler and best all round player ever)
2 Gretz (best scorer ever - most amazing player ever created by God or evolution)
3 Coffey (best skater ever)
4 Weight (my second favorite Oiler ever)
5 Kurri (one of the best Euros to play in the NHL)
6 Fuhr (our best goalie ever)
7 Anderson (incredible in the clutch)
8 Ranford (won a Conn Smythe trophy)
9 Lowe (arguably most competitive Oiler ever)
10 Simpson (last Oiler to score 50)

Nice to see some respect for Dr. Randy Gregg. I played baseball with his sons; he was the coach as well. Great guy.

1. Messier (heart, desire - you can see it in his eyes)
2. Gretzky (skill, ridiculous sense of timing, desire - you can see it on the ice)
3. Kurri (class, everyday, worked hard at checking, dependable for that one-timer)
4. Fuhr (clutch. nothing like watching the opposition attack with three vs Lowe and Fuhr and Fuhrsie would still stone them)
5. Coffey (end-to-end rushes were a thing of beauty)
6. Anderson (kamikaze!)
7. Weight (I wish he was still here)
8. Lumley (that crazy hair)
9. Gregg (classy)
10. "Vish" Lowe (intensity)

1. Messier - a born leader
2. Gretz - the One and Only, there will never be another like him
3. Lowe - Mr. Oiler himself
4. Kurri - the best linemate Gretz could have had
5. Tikkanen - could get under the skin of anyone
6. Linseman - "the RAT"
7. Huddy - always solid in his own end
8. Simpson - career ended way too soon
9. MacTavish - last of the helmet-less warriors
10. Fuhr - always made the save when necessary

Man those guys were fun to watch!!

1.Gretzky- Well he's the best ever....
2.Messier- Most well rounded player, behind only Howe. Amazing speed.
3.Coffey- Often overlooked because he was the first to leave.
4.Fuhr- Best money goalie ever. Furhsie would have never folded against the Wild.
5.Kurri- Two way 50+ goalscorer.
6.Tikkanen- Remembered as a pesticle, but more talented than given credit for.
7.Anderson- Would take half the season to wake up, but amazing once playoffs hit.
8.Lowe- Solid, well rounded defenseman, with inhuman pain threshold.
9.Joseph- Turned this team back into a playoff team, then a playoff winner.
10.Weight-Always able to put up numbers, even with a limited supporting cast.
