40. Joe Thornton
Joe Thornton may have had a less than amicable departure from the Boston Bruins, but the fact was that the former Bruins captain first developed his NHL scoring touch as a member of the Bruins.  Thornton was a Second Team All Star in the 2002/03 season and incidentally in the campaign he was traded in, he would win the scoring title and the Hart Trophy.
