37. Kevin Lowe

Though it appears that all of the key members of the 1980’s Oilers dynasty are in the Hall, there is a very strong case that one still remains.  Kevin Lowe was a steady two way defenseman who was with the Oilers for the duration of Edmonton’s stellar run.  He was overshadowed by his offensive juggernauts, but as he watched them slowly depart Alberta, he remained steadying the blue line and becoming more important with each Cup run.  Lowe provided the same leadership (and was under similar shadows) when he was part of the Rangers Cup win in 1994.  A seven time All Star and six time Stanley Cup winner, Kevin Lowe was not just along for the ride; he helped steer the bus.  If any one left of those great Edmonton teams gets in, our bet is on Kevin Lowe.

Among all the flash, speed and scoring of the 1980s Oiler teams, Lowe was the anchor, the old-school defenseman. If Norris Trophies hadn't gone to people like Bourque and Coffey, Lowe would have bagged a couple himself. And don't be fooled by his low goal and assist totals - if Coffey hadn't been there, Lowe had the hands and wheels to be an offensive defensemen, and could have racked up 800-900 points himself. He chose to be a team player.
