Now in his 21st season, this future Hall of Famer was acquired from the Bruins on Monday night. He has won five Norris Trophies but zero Stanley Cups. Yet, at 39, he had remained Boston's top offensive defenseman.
This Hall of Famer played 20 seasons, 17 as a member of the Canadiens, with whom he won two Norris Trophies and six Stanley Cups. He was a fine offensive player whose production slipped in his last four seasons.
The Verdict: In his prime, Robinson was among the best in the league. Bourque, our choice, is among the best of all time.
