2. Eddie Shore
Eddie Shore was feared.  He was feared because he was tough as nails and could (and would) physically intimidate anybody.  He was also feared because he was talented and knew exactly what to do on the ice and what to do with the puck.  Shore was the first major star in Boston and this was the man that started the tradition of stellar blueliners in Beantown.  

Shore was a four time Hart Trophy winner, a seven time First Team All Star and arguably the man on which the franchise was built.
