Here it is, #27!

I flipped a coin to decide who would be added to the list and Fedorov won.

I'm gonna vote for one of the best defensemen of All-Time, Denis Potvin.

He was captain of the legendary Islanders team during their dynasty and he was a good captain. He won the James Norris trophy three times in the late 70's and he's one of just five defensemen to ever score more than 100 points in a season.

He's ranked 7th in points (1052 points) among d-men and 5th in goals with a whopping 310 goals. The highest player points of any current player is Sergei Gonchar with 748, meaning that no one will pass him anytime soon.

He also won the Norris trophy in 1973-74 with 54 points. He scored 30 or more goals three times in his career.


Oh man! Hawerchuk almost got in.

For the seventh consecutive time, I'm nominating Dale Hawerchuk.

This guy had a pretty underrated career because he never won a cup, but he was one best consistent offensive forces in the game in the 80s and the early 90s.

He had a crazy rookie year with 103 points (winning the Calder) and finished his career with 6 seasons of 100 or more points. Only 5 players have had 100 or more points more often.

He topped out at 53 goals and 77 assists for an incredible 130 points in 1984-85.

He's still at 18th All-Time in career points with 1,409 points, more than both Brett Hull and Guy Lafleur, who have both already been voted in.

Borje Salming

This guy was a warrior. He was pretty much the first Swede to thrive in the NHL, and one of the first Europeans too for that matter. He amassed 787 points in 1148 games, not bad for a defenseman. He completely proved the "chicken swede" theory wrong as he got 1344 PIMS over his career, as well as his famous and horrific injury, in which his face was stepped on and he needed nearly 200 stitches. He paved the way for Swedes in the NHL, such as Mats Sundin, Daniel Afredsson, Henrik Zetterberg, the Sedin twins, Mattias Ohlund, Peter Forsberg and Nicklas Lidstrom. He remains a fan favourite in Toronto as well as all over Sweden.
