5) Ted Lindsay

Lindsay was an absolutely vicious competitor. On top of his lightning-quick speed and awesome offensive skills, Lindsay was known to slash, punch, elbow, knee, and head-butt anyone stupid enough to try and stop him from doing what he wanted to on the ice. Lindsay scored 335 goals in his career and was a part of 4 Stanley Cup Championship teams.

4) Terry Sawchuk

Sawchuk won the Calder Trophy in 1951 and followed up his rookie season by winning the Vezina and the Stanley Cup the following year.

In the days before backup goalies and goalie masks, Sawchuk played through face lacerations, broken bones, a collapsed lung, ruptured vertebrae, and chronic depression to become one of the best goalies in NHL history.

Sawchuk won three Stanley Cups with Detroit and recorded 351 in his three separate stints with the organization.

3) Nicklas Lidstrom

Nicklas Lidstrom is the best defenseman not named Bobby Orr ever to play hockey, period. Lidstrom is tied with Doug Harvey for second-most Norris Trophies (seven) and was the first European-born Conn Smythe winner as well as the first European-born captain of a Stanley Cup-winning team.
