    Can’t argue with that list, though I’d bump Gretzky and Dionne to #1 and #2, simply because this team likely wouldn’t still exist had it not been for those two putting butts in seats.

    And they’re the only players in team history to capture Art Ross trophies.

    Luc should be 3rd not 8th,highest scoring left wing in Kings history and NHL.Gretz and Dionne I agree should be 1 and 2.

    I think if you want a really great argument you go with the 10 worst Kings of all time. I mean the greats always get mention but athletes like Denis Tsygurov don't get any attention and barely exist on HF Boards. And I think it will be a good way to get Nick Shore into some sort of top 10 list and maybe get the guy some work-hopefully his possession numbers included any money he made cause unemployment doesn't pay much.

    You can easily make a separate top ten list of the worst Kings of all-time for every position. It won't be hard to come up with a list of 50 names for that one.

    From what I've seen I'd rank it something like this

    1. Dan Cloutier
    2. John Zeiler
    3. Jason LaBarbera
    4. Denis Gauthier
    5. Barry Brust
    6. Rich Clune
    7. Jeff Giuliano
    8. Jon Klemm
    9. Randy Jones
    10. Dustin Penner

    I accept Dustin Brown at 10, just because of that Conn Smythe performance in 2012, otherwise he should not be anywhere the top 10.

    Brown has earned greatness through results. I think if we're talking most talented players you have Nicholls in there, his numbers are off the charts but he failed to win it all. With 2 Cups Bernie Nicholls' career is judged totally differently. As it stands now Brown's #23 jersey will go into the rafters one day without a doubt. If you said that 7 years ago you would have been laughed right off HF.

    Yeah but he scores the most important one in 2012 to send the Kings to the Stanley Cup.I'm sure theres more players like Jeremy Roenick that fit your list rather than Penner.

    1. Marcel Dionne
    2. Wayne Gretzky
    3. Drew Doughty
    4. Jonathan Quick
    5. Anze Kopitar
    6. Luc Robitaille
    7. Dave Taylor
    8. Rogie Vachon
    9. Dustin Brown
    10. Ziggy Palffy

    Dustin Brown is always in my Top 10 for years to come as the first King to ever hoist the Stanley Cup. He has been much maligned, but he produced when and where it matters most.

    Jari Kurri would have easily made this list had he been a King for a greater percentage of his career. He was always one of my favorites.

    I agree. I can't even rank them when we are talking about different eras. Or is it based on talent?

    1. Robitaille
    2. Dionne
    3. Taylor
    4. Gretzky
    5. Brown
    6. Kopitar
    7. Blake
    8. Quick
    9. Doughty
    10. Goring

    GP with the kings matters a lot to me in my list. So as someone like Doughty plays more than Blake (this season) things will change. Crazy that Brown will have the most Games Played as a King when he suites up for the 67th game this year.
