20.  Dave Taylor

It wasn’t that Dave Taylor wasn’t supposed to make the NHL, but when you are drafted 210th overall the expectations aren’t great. Dave Taylor shattered all expectations becoming part of the legendary Los Angeles Kings Triple Crown Line with Marcel Dionne and Charlie Simmer. Taylor was an unexpected scoring machine who eclipsed the 100 point plateau twice early in his career. Despite his offensive prowess, Taylor was a mean checker and had a strong feel for the defensive side of the game. He would use this defensive skill well late in his career which would prolong his fruitful career in Hollywood. In what is a rarity, Dave Taylor began and ended his career with one team and his number is currently retired by the Kings. It is not impossible for Dave Taylor to join his Triple Crown teammate Marcel Dionne into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.
