The few who jump out to me:
Dale Hawerchuk - The Jets were on a whole other level when he was on the ice. A shame he was stuck in the same division as Gretzky and never got the recognition.
Pat Lafontaine - Along with Hawerchuk, he was the main reason Mogilny had the goal scoring season he did in 92-93.
Tomas Holmstrom - The single biggest factor to the Wings PP production for years. He particularly helps out assist numbers on shots from the point. The same could be said to a much lesser degree of Ryan Smith.
Bobby Smith - The passer on the North Stars early in his career boosting the likes of Broten, Ciccarelli and then later comes back in 86 with the Habs and helps out Naslund, Kjell Dahlin and Richer. Underrated IMO.
