Who is the all-time most valuable player in the NHL to a single team?


The NHL is like a star-filled sky when you look through its past and present but there are those which people always point to as having been brighter than the others. However, my question is, who would you point as being the most valuable to a single club in contributing to its overall success? Note that this could be in any capacity but for a single franchise.

    He is certainly a great example, no doubt. Not only did he do it all as a player (and through major adversity) but he ended up saving the Pittsburgh franchise later in the front office and eventually as the owner. Mario is certainly "Mr Penguin".

    Thanks and fair point. And in NHL terms, did you have a particular coach in mind?

    Good one - The Oilers could win the Cup without Gretzky but couldn't without Messier. Not only amazing ability but incredible leadership. To think - when he was with the Cincinnati Stingers of the WHA, no one thought he'd continue as a pro.
