In the National Hockey League, the 1990s was a decade like a coin, with two distinct sides.

The era began under the stewardship of star scorers Wayne Gretzky and Mario Lemieux. They were soon joined at the top of the ranks by a wave of exciting new talent. But as the decade wore on, a more defensive style of play squelched the creativity and excitement of the game, slowing goal-scoring to a trickle.

When looking at the league's best scorers of the '90s, it's important to consider how the game changed over that 10-year period. The individual performers on this list are ranked based on total output, but also on goals per game, consistency, standout seasons such as scoring titles and contributions to their teams' overall success.

Here are the top 10. See if this brings back some memories.
