Since then the Oilers have won five Stanley Cups, and are one of the most successful clubs since the merger of the NHL and WHA. Their championships and dominance in the late 1980s has been honored with the distinction of being one of the NHL’s dynasties by the Hockey Hall of Fame. The Oilers were the original NHL team of Wayne Gretsky, largely regarded as the greatest player in league history.
