Bob "Moose" Dailey

captained Memorial Cup championship team (1973)
at 6'5, the tallest NHLer over his first five seasons (1973-77)
named Canucks top defenseman (1975)
in NHL all-star game (1978, 1981)
went to the Stanley Cup finals with Philly in 1980
named Flyers top defenseman (1979, 1981)

325 points in 561 NHL games with 814 PIM (a very impressive 46 pts in 63 NHL playoff games).

Euhmmm... Dailey wasn't picked?
And is it me or both Dailey and Watson got their career shortened on the same kind of play?
