Marcel Dionne

Marcel Dionne
Marcel Dionne may very well be the greatest NHL player to never have won a Stanley Cup. Actually, he never really came close, as he was never really on great teams. Because of this, Dionne may not have achieved the level of popularity he should have, but his peers knew what skill that the offensively gifted Centre had as he won the Ted Lindsay Award twice; the award given to the MVP as voted by his peers. Dionne also won the Lady Byng twice and was a post season All Star four times. Eight times he would top the 100 point mark, and won the Art Ross in 1980. As good as he was, we can only imagine how much greater his legacy would be had he ever came close to a Cup.
