Mario Lemieux, C, Pittsburgh Penguins

Super Mario lived up to his nickname by winning the Calder, six scoring titles, seven MVP awards, and two Conn Smythes while leading the Penguins to two Stanley Cups. His career would have been even more spectacular had he not been slowed by cancer and a back injury, but he was still good enough for the Hall of Fame.

No. 2: Kirk Muller, LW, Devils

Notable picks:
No. 4: Al Iafrate, D, Maple Leafs
No. 51: Patrick Roy, G, Canadiens
No. 117: Brett Hull, RW, Flames
No. 171: Luc Robitaille, LW, Kings
No. 180: Gary Suter, D, Flames
