Joe Thornton
A one time winner of the Hart Trophy as the NHL’s Most Valuable Player, Joe Thornton as of this writing is already considered on the inside track to the Hockey Hall of Fame. In addition to the three Harts, Thornton is a one time scoring champion, a three time assists champion a one time First Team All Star and was a Second Team All Star three times.

While Joe Thornton (as of this writing) has yet to win the Stanley Cup, he was a member of Canada’s Olympic Gold Medal in 2010 and the 2004 World Cup. Additional statistical accumulation should make it impossible to keep him out.
