I'm gonna go against my usual methods and vote for the man who was just added, Brian Leetch. The main reason for this is because we haven't had a defenseman on the list since Denis Potvin at #28. We need more defensemen. :P.

He won two Norris Trophies, the Conn Smythe Trophy, and played in 10 All-Star Games.

He had a mind-blowing 102 points in 1991-92 with 22 goals and 80 assists.

All in all, he had seven seasons with more than 70 points, which is amazing for a defender. Among those were five with 20+ goals.

He is still 8th all-time in points among defenders with 1,028 points. The next closest active player is Sergei Gonchar, way back with 748 points.

In the 1994 playoffs, Leetch was a monster, scoring an incredible 34 points in 23 games.


For the fourth time, I'm nominating Bernie "Boom Boom" Geoffrion. A highly underrated star of the 50's and 60's, Geoffrion on was more than just a "good player" in his era.

He was the 2nd player in history to score 50 goals in a season when he did it in 1960-61. His number was retired by the Canadiens (a very high standard) in 2006 just after he died.

Once again voting Sid, time to get him on the list.



Alex Mogilny, One of the best in Russian Hockey History.

He had a career that was greatly hampered by injuries, he only played more than 70 Games 5 Times in his 16 Year Career, but when he played he amazing.

His career is highlighted by the incredible 76 Goal, 127 Point season he had in 92/93. He also had another 55 Goal 107 Point season in 95/96 when he played here in Vancouver.

He ended his career with 1032 Points in 990 Games, which just proves he was that good even through the injury troubles.
