The 10 Best NHL Players To Ever Win The Stanley Cup

NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- UPDATED: To include the results of the latest game between the L.A. Kings and the New York Rangers.

The battle for the Stanley Cup is underway as the New York Rangers take on the L.A. Kings.

As of Monday, June 9, The Kings have a two game lead over the Rangers, defeating them 3-2 in game one and 5-4 in game two.

The Broadway Blue Shirts are looking to prove to fans they are not out of the series yet when they take on the Kings in game three on June 9 in New York.

It takes a great team to make it to the Stanley Cup finals. Each team from the East coast and the West coast must prove that they are the best of the best in their division.

A great team is made up of great players and a great player can be defined as someone who is talented, fast, strong, and willing to work not only to improve his own game but to help improve the game of his teammates.

A great hockey player will treat every game like it is the Stanley Cup playoffs, knowing that each win gets you closer to that coveted cup named after Lord Stanley.

The following is a list -- in no particular order -- of the NHL's 10 best players to win the Stanley Cup:

Wayne Gretzky

Known as "The Great One" and labeled "the greatest hockey player ever" by several sports writers and the NHL itself, Gretzky would win four Stanley Cup championships during his 20-year career.

Gretzky played for the Edmonton Oilers, where he led his team to four Cups, the L.A. Kings and finished his career with the New York Rangers.

Gretzky is the leading point-scorer in NHL history, and is the only player to exceed 200 points in one season, a fete he accomplished four times.
