Oh and Yzerman himself said the reason he wanted to wear #19...was because Trottier wore it.

I'm aware of why Yzerman chose the number 19, but that doesn't have anything to do with who the better player is.... and it isn't to suggest that Trottier wasn't a spectacular player.

Trottier has three more Cups than Yzerman, but you can argue that Yzerman's back-to-back in the late 90's was done in a more difficult time to win consecutive Cups than when Trottier got his 4 - but you're right, 4 in a row will probably not be duplicated, at least any time soon - and certainly he was more of a bystander in the Lemieux-Jagr show with those 90's Cups

Yzerman also has 500 goals & 1,000 points, was also a noted 2-way center, and probably the best captain of his generation.

Yzerman has 330 more points than Trottier (granted, in more games played), but a better point-per-game average, and 168 more goals - and their playoff points and goals stats are almost identical.

And, Yzerman did it all with one team - serving as captain for 20 years, an NHL-record
