74. Gary Roberts
910 career points is nothing to sneeze at, but it is not the first thing that people think about with Gary Roberts.  He was that type of player that every General Manager wanted to have, and every player wanted as a teammate.   He made everyone on his team just want to play better.

Again, this isn’t to say he wasn’t putting pucks in the net.  Roberts had a season of over fifty goals once and three times he had the highest shooting percentage in the NHL.  What he was known for was uncanny grit and determination and the desire to always win.  This should be expected of most hockey players, but few were on the level of Gary Roberts in that regard.
