Already been mentioned by others in this thread, but mine would be Jacques Plante and Syl Apps.
I love the stories I've read about Jacques Plante: the way he stood up to authority, the way he did his own thing regardless of what people thought, how he would always reply to fan mail from young goalies by sending them advice on how to improve, how he tried to entertain the fans.
Syl Apps is one of those rare individuals that I've never read anyone say anything negative about. From all accounts, an exemplary player and person.
Also: Aurel Joliat, Frank Boucher and Bill Gadsby.
