I think Magnuson (RIP) might have won one or two. You got to give him credit. He was always ready to take a beating. Vickers was really tough but after the first couple seasons he had a long fuse. He was an excellent player for several years and then things kind of went downhill. Irvine was the prototypical big 3rd line winger grinder--used to play with Stemkowski and MacGregor. 2nd line had Tkachuk and Fairbairn and this guy or that guy from Dave Balon to Gene Carr to Greg Polis to whoever.

Incidentally I think Bobby Orr was the greatest ever to lace them up but maybe I'm just too reactionary.
