Ron Ellis. A superlative two way player. Key player in the Summit Series which he gets nary any credit for. Besides his fantastic defensive play Ron also scored over 20 goals 10 straight years and 11 out of 12 years, and this was when scoring over 20 goals in a season was a hugh accomplishment. Was such a good player that Ace Bailey asked that his #6 be unretired so that Ron could wear it.

He should be (and I keep meaning to lobby for this but haven't gotten to it yet) amongst the honoured names for the TML.
