14. Miroslav Satan

The owner of one of the best names in sports, Miroslav Satan, played 14 years in the NHL, eight of which with the Buffalo Sabres, where he had the best part of his career.

The native of Czechoslovakia, Satan began his career with the Edmonton Oilers, but the Left Wing was not there for long as the Oilers traded him for two players that combined would not be as effective as Satan became.  In his second full year as a Sabre (1998-99), he started a five-year streak where he broke the 60-Point plane, with the last two year reaching 70 Points.  Satan also made the All-Star Game twice (2000 & 2003) during this time period.

After scoring 57 Points in 2003-04, he signed with the New York Islanders.  Satan would later win a Stanley Cup Ring with the Pittsburgh Penguins in 2009.  With the Sabres, Satan amassed 456 Points.
