13. Cam Neely
How often did the Vancouver Canucks regret the day they traded away Cam Neely?  The same amount of times that the Boston Bruins celebrated acquiring him.
For many, Neely was the ultimate Bruin.  He was fearless, he was dedicated to the team and he wanted to win at all cost.  Neely was considered by many to be the ultimate power forward, and he was a player who will be celebrated by Bruins fans for generations to come.

His hard nosed style of play caught up with him early and he was forced to retire relatively early because of it, but he did enough to make four Second Team All Stars and the Hockey Hall of Fame.
