Here's an old All Star photo of LA's famous Triple Crown line. Where do Marcel Dionne, Dave Taylor and Charlie Simmer rank among the top ten players in LA Kings history.
Wayne Gretzky - 1 Hart Trophy, 3 Art Ross Trophies, 4 Lady Byng Trophies. 1 Stanley Cup finals appearance. 537 games: 260-671-931 pts. His legacy trumps his on-ice accomplishments.
Luc Robitaille - 1 Calder Trophy. 1171 games: 598-645-1243 pts. The face of the Kings.
Marcel Dionne - 1 Art Ross Trophy, 2 Lady Byng Trophies. 964 games: 570-780-1350 pts. LA's first superstar.
Dave Taylor - 1203 games played (all time leader): 457-671-1128 pts. Heart and soul player was conscience of the team. Long time GM also landed names like Anze Kopitar and Dustin Brown.
Rogie Vachon - 180 wins, 35 shutouts. All time fan favorite. Greatest goalie in Kings history.
Rob Blake - 1 Norris Trophy. 1 Stanley Cup finals appearance. 850 games played: 169-349-518 pts
Bernie Nicholls - 636 games played: 342-452-794 pts. Underrated fan favourite.
Anze Kopitar - 475 games played: 163-271-434 pts. Kings best player right now.
Mattias Norstrom - 780 games played: 14-130-144 pts. Underrated. Arguably the team's best captain.
Ziggy Palffy - 335 games played: 159-200-359 pts. Could be top 3 based on talent alone, and he did it in the dead puck era.
I think four great seasons into his career you can add jonathan quick to this list too
