Mike Bossy
As the goal scoring machine for the New York Islanders dynasty, Mike Bossy won the Calder Trophy in 1978 and spent the next nine seasons lighting the red lamp on a frequent basis. Bossy would become the second player to net fifty goals in fifty games and would hit the half-century mark in his first nine NHL seasons. More importantly, Bossy would lead his Islanders to four consecutive Stanley Cups.

With that said, Bossy always felt that he was in the shadow of other stars. He never won the Art Ross, and once Wayne Gretzky emerged on the scene, fans would always point to Edmonton when discussing the league’s best player. Bossy also did not get credit for the hard work that he put on defence, a skill that he worked very hard to acquire in the professional ranks.

Regardless of how history perceives Mike Bossy, we can state that while he was playing there was no better Right Winger in the National Hockey League. That should be known as fact.
