Players that PWNED another team

Sometimes, a player is specifically awesome against a certain team.

An Islander fan on this site once said that Pierre Turgeon owned the Flyers like few ever had.

Can you recall certain players that, against a certain team, were so good against them that it was ridiculous.

Dany Heatley has shredded the Leafs since his Atlanta days. I wouldn't be surprised if he's at a goal-a-game against Toronto.

Against the Canucks:

Sakic and Hejduk absolutely destroy them. Wayne Gretzky had a habbit of picking the team apart, especially if a record or milestone was on the line. Curtis Sanford was signed so he would stop getting shut-outs against the team.

Against the Oilers:

Last year Arnason looked like a top-line player against them but no one else.

Crosby has dismantled the Flyers over the last three seasons.

I was just thinking that too, Crosby dismantles the Flyers all the time. Had a 6 point night in is Hart Trophy winning season against them

Gretzky owned Richard Brodeur, whom he has scored more goals against than any other goalie in the NHL. And Brodeur was a Canuck. Go figure...........

While this can be said about a lot of stars in the past, I always felt Yzerman was a demon against the Leafs.

John Leclair for several years terrorized his old team the Habs on a religious basis. Right after the trade. I think he had more success against the Habs than Heatley has had against the Leafs even

Hasek seemed to always have the Leafs number as well. Even in Toronto's most recent peak (99-'04) no matter what especially when they were in Buffalo they got shellacked, even when Buffalo had a rotten team.

And in a reverse way if anyone can look this up, try finding the stats that Roy had against the Flyers from the beginning of his career until 1997. It was horrible. Montreal always had a good team in those years and Philly had some awful ones but IIRC Roy only won once in Philly in those 12 years. Only once he got to Colorado did it even out. Did he not like the colour orange?

Didn't he win three games in Philadelphia in the 1989 Wales Finals?

This ones more modern than historical but its worth mentioning all the same.

In the five seasons Antero Niittymakis been playing in the NHL he hasnt lost to the Thrashers once. He has nine wins, like a 1.55 goals against average, and a .944 save percentage. Its crazy.

Steve Larmer and Gretzky had field days against the Leafs.

Sundin vs the Habs.

I don't know if it's even fair to say Crosby and Gretzky and the like did particularly well against any specific team. Gretzky didn't score 215 points against one team, he was great against everyone. Arnason is the first player that came to mind. Couldn't trade him for a ninth round pick, but he's got to be around a point per game against the Oilers. Sanford is another good one that was brought up. When the Blues were in the midst of their horrible first post-lock out season, I don't think the Canucks beat them once.

Up until last season Martin Brodeur owned the Habs.

- the Canadiens were winless in their last nine against the Devils with their last win coming on March 20th, 2004

- in those nine games the Canadiens were outscored by the Devils 33 to 16.

- in 51 career games against the Canadiens, Brodeur had 34 wins, 12 losses, 5 ties, with a 1.74 goals against average to go along with 8 shutouts.

- the Canadiens last win in New Jersey came on February 5th, 2002 when Jose Theodore shut out the Devils 1-0.

- before that the Canadiens had failed to win in New Jersey since October 26th, 1993 when their captain was Guy Carbonneau and their goaltender was Patrick Roy.

-coincidentally, the two Canadiens victories saw both Roy and Theodore record shutouts.

- the Canadiens record in New Jersey since that win over the Devils in the fall of 1993, was a pitiful 1 win, 24 losses, and 4 ties.

Cam Neely wiped the floor with Roy and the Habs from 1988 to 1994

Cam Neely does hold the distinction of having the most career goals against Patrick Roy. Of course, avoiding him and the Bruins in 1993 went a long way towards winning the Cup that year.

Mario owned every team in the Patrick division (with the exception of the Islanders) for roughly two decades.

On the flip side, RJ Umberger owns the Pens.

And he killed the Habs in the last playoffs. Eric Cole is another player that always seemed to score against us.

IIRC, Teemu Selšnne used to excell against the Oilers. Possibly Sharks too.

The only player that can imagine would have pawned a team is a guy like Theoren Fleury. I could picture him pawning the skate sharpener to get some drinking money...


Gretzky owned the Canucks, Flames, Jets, Kings, Flyers, Penguins, Blues....nobody actually stopped the guy.

I think he scored more versus Mike Liut.

Jonathon Cheechoo seems to have an inordinate amount of multi-goal games against the Ducks.
