2. Dustin Byfuglien
Already a Stanley Cup Champion (with Chicago) when Dustin Byfuglien was traded to the Thrashers, he was moved back to his natural blueline position and essentially became a more valuable hockey player.  As a Thrasher/Jet, the native of Minnesota has become an All Star twice and as of this writing is the leader of Winnipeg’s defensive corps.
