I would say Dale Hawerchuk is one of the first to come to mind. Never got the attention in Winnipeg. I don't know, maybe Andy Bathgate as well?

I think currently you may have to say Martin St. Louis. Yes he is well known, but he has always been the constant star on those Tampa teams. Others have gotten some more attention. Richards won the Conn Smythe, Lecavalier won the Richard and Stamkos burst into the NHL scoring from day one practically and has already led the NHL in goals twice. St. Louis has always been involved and in many ways is the player with the quieter success. In the 2011 playoffs he gets his teeth knocked out and doesn't miss a beat and yet he's still a Lady Byng nominee. That's a player.
