I want to say Steve Larmer. When people remember the '94 team, they remember Messier, Leetch, Graves, Richter and the deadline acquisitions. But the team was flat before they traded for Larmer in November '93. He had 60 points in 69 regular season games. And another 16 in the playoffs, including 4 goals in the SCF.

If you are going to use that example, than the most natural mention is Zubov. He lead that team in scoring in the regular season.

Larmer and Sarge are two other great mentions.

Over the last 20 years it's tough because there's been some bad teams and a lot of player who underachieved.

Others from the last 20 years:

James Patrick
Michal Rozsival
Matt Cullen
Martin Straka

Others beyond the last 20 years

John Ogrodnick
Tomas Sandstrom
Bob Froese
John Vanbiesbrouck
Ulf Dahlen
Don Maloney

I think some of the guys the Rangers traded were pretty underrated by the organization when they were dealt:

Manny Malhotra
Todd Marchant
Mikael Samuelsson
