RED WINGS C
When he scored his 600th career goal last Friday night, the 17-year veteran became the Nth NHL player to reach that milestone; he's also the captain and lifeblood of the best team of the 1990s.
HALL OF FAME C
After 18 seasons he retired in 1989 with 731 goals, the third most alltime. His averages of .542 of a goal and .772 of an assist per game are better than Yzerman's numbers (.499 and .752 through Sunday).
The Verdict: Yzerman's stats would be even better if he hadn't devoted himself to becoming a top defensive player midway through his career—something Dionne didn't do. Throw in his two Stanley Cups ( Dionne didn't win one), and Yzerman is the man.
