20. Ed Van Impe
A three time All Star as a Philadelphia Flyers, Ed Van Impe would probably tell you himself that he was not blessed with a lot of offensive skill or fancy moves but what he did have was a plethora of toughness and a determination to keep the puck from reaching the net at all cost.  Van Impe excelled at blocking shots and working the corners and stifling offensive rushes.  The member of the Broad Street Bullies would win back-to-back Stanley Cups in the 1970 and he as a top ten finisher twice in Defensive Point Shares.
