The Great One Wayne Gretzky

October Canadian hockey player Wayne Gretzky makes his goal, breaking the all-time scoring record in the National Hockey League.

The smolderingly intense Messier and the otherworldly, cerebral Gretzky were the cornerstones of the Oilers teams that won four Stanley Cups in five years (1984-88). With Gretzky routinely shattering scoring records, Messier's edgy ''win-or-else'' leadership gave Edmonton the grit and fire it needed to become a dynasty. Though the Great One was famously traded to Los Angeles in 1988, the duo was later reunited for a season with the New York Rangers in 1996-97.
