72. Eddie Shack

He may not be on this list for his career statistics, which although were good (465 career points over 17 years) to do not indicate a Hall of Famer, but Eddie Shack was one of the true characters of the game and at times the most popular. Shack could always be counted to deliver a unique interview and perspective that was different from his contemporaries. Shack was even the subject a novelty song (Clear the Track, Here Comes Eddie Shack) that went to number one in the Canadian charts. Shack was to many a “novelty” player himself but anyone who can last as long as he did is certainly no gimmick.
