Iconic?

For better or worse?

Player and/or coach and/or writer and/or builder and/or broadcaster and/or image and/or etc.....?

(From a Bostonian born in the late 50's)

- Bobby Orr
- Wayne Gretzky
- Gordie Howe
- Rocket Richard
- Ken Dryden
- Bobby Hull
- Eddie Shore

- Montreal CH jersey
- CCCP jersey

- Don Cherry

- Scotty Bowman
- Punch Imlach

- CCM

- USA Miracle On Ice

- Bettman (for better or worse)

- Hanson Brothers (for better or worse)

- Peter Puck (for better or worse)

- Derek Sanderson - (for better or worse) was an iconic catalyst for massive changes culture-wise in the early 70's.

- Manon Rheaume (title IX influenced hockey poster child) Not much impact really but iconic nonetheless.

- Did not see any of the Summit Series
- Did not read any of the Canadian press / Never had the builders lionized in my region as as they are in Canada
- Do not see any HNIC broadcasts
- Hockey in Europe is still a mystery to many in North America, I'm sure there are so many iconic figures there that are unknown here.
