Prucha and Svatos have both been mentioned already (deservedly so).

I don't think people should say Cheechoo, he was pretty good before his knees gave out and he had a few good statistical seasons.

Cheechoo's problem wasn't his knees, it was a sports hernia. He was never a good skater before that, and the injury then robbed him of what little ability he had left. I remember during the 10-11 season when he played with Worcester, some of the WorSharks posters were noting that defencemen skating backwards were able to catch up to him.

and I agree that he shouldn't be on the list. He had a 56 goal season, a 37 goal season, and a 28 goal season (that one was before Joe Thornton, and he was playing on basically a 3rd line with, IIRC, Nik Sundstrom and I think Mike Ricci.
