Hockey Kevin Stevens

Was Kevin Stevens a superstar forward in the shadow of Mario Lemieux or was he was only a superstar because of Lemieux? Many asked that question as Kevin Stevens topped over 100 points twice and was among the league leaders. The answer may have been somewhere in between. Stevens may not have reached those plateaus without Mario, but he was far from a pylon either. By 1995, injuries had really slowed him down, and he went from superstar to salary liability seemingly overnight. His good years were very good; but likely there were not enough of them to grant him entry.

A hockey player who's career was ruined because of crack cocaine use, not a likely candidate for the hall of fame. Although he was a killer player in his prime, before he really messed up his life in the lockout season. Ive seen his story, really was shocked to see what he went though, sad he couldn't have had a full career.

    72. Sandis Ozolinsh Although he played for a plethora of NHL teams, Sandis Ozolinsh was not exactly a journeyman. The Latvian was adept at playmaking and was an excellent scoring defenseman. He finisished his career playing in European leagues and though he made seven All Star teams, there is a very good chance that he is going to be quickly forgotten by those…
