25. Pit Martin

While Pit Martin was on the other side of what would be a lopsided trade (against Chicago) that saw Phil Esposito and Ken Hodge go to Boston, this should not demean what he did accomplish in the Windy City.

Martin would have six 60 Point Seasons, peaking with a 90 Point year in 1972-73.  Three years he would have 30 Goals and he was a four-time All-Star going to the mid-season classic four seasons in a row from 1971 to 1974.  He would win the Bill Masterton Memorial Trophy in 1970.
