Paul Kariya
With his short stature, Paul Kariya did not look the part of the professional hockey player, but once he took to the ice, there was little doubt that he was among the elite. Kariya was a very intelligent player and displayed such amazing skill that he was often compared with the immortal Wayne Gretzky. Known for his gentlemanly play, he rarely made mistakes and had incredible speed. Concussions reduced his career and his career points total may not be in the upper echelon, but had he been healthier it very well could have.

Before he got hurt he was among the very best of his generation. Speed, skill and smarts in an power/close checking era that didn't much value any of those qualities. Imagine what he would have done if he'd played in the 80s! We'd be talking about him in the same breath as Gretzky, Hawerchuk, Lemieux and Yzerman.

Also great internationa l performances . Everyone remembers the big shootout miss in the '94 Olympics, but he was a stud for Canada from the Juniors through the Olympics.
