In terms of play---#4, Bobby Orr, as he completely redefined the defenseman position, playing almost like a 4th forward on the ice, yet being good enough to get back on defense and play his position. Only a select few have even come close since, most notably Denis Potvin and Raymond Bourque.

Bruins fans are spoiled in this regard.

If the subject is expanded beyond skaters and includes goaltenders, I will say Martin Brodeur for goalies---not because of his longevity, but how great of a puck-handling goalie he is---so good that the trapezoid was brought into the rulebook because of him.
