One of the best two way players of all time, Bryan Trottier
did not always get his due; despite winning six Stanley Cups as a player. Trottier was an offensively gifted playmaker who once won the Art Ross Trophy (he won the Hart the same year) was also a keen defensive strategist and became known throughout the National Hockey League as one of the most complete players in the game.
Trottier would center the top line for the New York Islanders dynasty though often press would focus on the goals coring of line mate, Mike Bossy. Later, as his career declined, Trottier remained an asset, as his leadership helped guide the young Pittsburgh Penguins to a pair of Cups in the early 90’s. Bryan Trottier entered the Hockey Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility in 1997, though he would have gotten inducted earlier had it not been for a brief comeback in 1994.
