Paul Coffey’s records tell the story of his NHL career. In 1986 he tallied eight points in a game against Detroit, two goals and six assists, tying the record for a defenseman set nearly a decade earlier. That same season he broke Bobby Orr’s single-season goal record for a defenseman, scoring 46. He also scored at least one point in 28 games that season, another record. During his 21-season career, Coffey won four Stanley Cup championships and was a three-time Norris Trophy winner. He retired with 396 goals and 1,135 assists in 1,409 games played. Coffey was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2004.
The goal for any basketball franchise is to build a dynasty that fans and experts will be talking about for
