Not really a player, but since we have Cherry/Bowman-inspired rules, Roger Neilson inspired a lot of them, including but not limited to: putting too many men on the ice repeatedly (among other things) in the last minute of the game while on a 5-on-3, which resulted in a rule change so that doing so would result in a penalty shot (not sure if that's an NHL rule, but it's definitely an OHL rule) and keeping the goalie's stick on the goal line when the goalie was pulled.
