22. Bobby Smith

In the era of star centers, it is easy to forget about Bobby Smith. As a player who once scored more points than Wayne Gretzky to win the OMJHL scoring title, Smith entered the NHL with a bang winning the Calder Trophy with the Minnesota North Stars. Smith was a quiet star in the NHL who was leadership and passing skills seemed to go unnoticed expect during playoff runs in Minnesota and Montreal. Smith finished his career with over 1,000 points but he seemed to do so without a lot of people taking notice.
