17. Brad Park

Brad Park was considered by many to be the second best defenceman of the 1970’s, and he arrived in Boston at the tail end of his prime.  Park was still able to secure another full season in Boston as a First Team All Star, and he would average 0.83 Points per Game as a Bruin, which was actually higher than it was than when he was with the New York Rangers.

Brad Park

You would think that a five time First Team All Star would have won at least one Norris Trophy, but Brad Park had the misfortune of playing in the same era as Bobby Orr who dominated that award (and Denis Potvin later in his career). Park also had a lot of bridesmaid’s analogies with the Stanley Cup as despite playing for many good teams, he was in the Cup finals three times without winning a ring.
