Edmonton Oilers

During the early 1980s, WAYNE GRETZKY was at the zenith of his amazing offensive prowess. In 1981-82, he scored 212 points. In 1982-83, GRETZKY earned 196. During 1983-84, WAYNE cracked 200 again with 205. So during the 1984-85 season, it was really no surprise when WAYNE GRETZKY led the NHL in scoring for an awesome sixth time (he would go on to win or tie the scoring championship eight times in a row). Edmonton snipers scored 401 goals -- 38 more than any other team -- on their way to a fourth straight first place finish in the Smythe Division. The top five scorers were GRETZKY, Jari Kurri and Paul Coffey. The Oilers met the first place Philadelphia Flyers in the Stanley Cup final. Edmonton got a bit of a scare with a loss in game one, but rebounded to win the next four in a row to win their second consecutive Stanley Cup. WAYNE GRETZKY had 17 goals and 30 assists for a playoff record 47 points. To commemorate the offense that helped lead the Oilers to the Stanley Cup, WAYNE GRETZKY was chosen as the playoff's most valuable performer, winning the CONN SMYTHE TROPHY
