15Peter Stastny

via hfboards.hockeysfuture.com

Known as "Peter The Great," Stastny entered the league on fire in 1980, winning the Calder Trophy (best rookie) and reaching the 100 point plateau in seven of his first eight seasons in the NHL. Peter would never really get out of Gretzky's shadow (playing for Quebec didn't help) despite

ending up the 2nd highest scorer of the 1980s. Even after an injury-plagued end to his career, Peter the Great would end up 7th all time in points per game. His legacy in the NHL should continue on through his son, currently playing for the St. Louis Blues.
