Frank J. Selke
As the Assistant General Manager to Conn Smythe for the Toronto Maple Leafs, Frank J. Selke carved an instant reputation as executive genius in hockey. Considered more than capable of running the Leafs in Smythe’s absence (he went to serve in World War II) Selke ran the organization but a trade for Ted Kennedy (that Selke was not consulted on) served as the catalyst for Smythe to force Selke out of Toronto upon his return from the war.

He would land in Montreal, and become the General Manager there and through his shrewd business acumen would lead the Canadians to six Stanley Cups. With nine Cups overall, (he had three with Toronto), Frank J. Selke’s inclusion to the Hockey Hall of Fame was a no brainer.
