But make no mistake about it, the Islanders teams that won four straight Stanley Cups from 1980 through 1983 were a magnificent offensive team.
Montreal Canadians won three consecutive Stanley Cup Champions in 1967,77, & 78, but what's even more impressive they also won four consecutive cups,1956 through 1960 and a couple of more back-to-back Stanley Cup championships in 1965,66, and again in 1968 & 69.
Wayne Gretzky's No. 99 is retired throughout the NHL not only because he is considered the greatest player in League history, but because the number and his name are synonymous. Though there is no debate over who the best player to wear that number is, there are 98 other numbers with more than one worthy candidate.
While Gretzky owns nine of the NHL's 11 highest-scoring seasons, Mario Lemieux owns the other two – including a 199-point effort in 1988-89 – as well as the 12th and 13th highest-scoring seasons. Lemieux's career point-per-game pace of 1.88 is the only one close to Gretzky's career rate of 1.92.

In baseball, the #3 was Babe Ruth's number. In basketball, the #23 was Jordan's number. In hockey, the number 66 is Lemieux's number. It's his, you can't have it.
If Wayne Gretzky never scored a goal, he still would've recorded 11 straight 100-point seasons and won 4 scoring titles.
Over Gretzky's 20 seasons in the NHL, the league averaged a monstrous 3.50 goals per game. During Crosby's career though, that same statistic fell to just 2.83 goals per game. This means that players in the modern era score 19 percent less than those in the 1980s and 1990s.
The Penguins remain the oldest team in the league while the Vancouver Canucks have now become the NHL's youngest team, with Buffalo falling to number 2.
Quebec City was, and would be still, the second-smallest city in North America with a professional sports franchise (the smallest is Green Bay, Wisc.). The NHL, in trying to gain a foothold in the sports world, should continue to avoid small markets.
Additionally, developers at EA explained that NHL 23 will not have any Russian or Belarusian teams due to the war in Ukraine.
Quebec City was by far the smallest market in the NHL; it was also the second-smallest major-league city in North America, behind only Green Bay, Wisconsin; home of the National Football League's Green Bay Packers.
