Bobby Orr is the best player in the history of the NHL. Eddie Shore is one of the all-time greats from the Old Time Hockey era. Ray Bourque was the premier defenseman of his generation. Zdeno Chara is the best shutdown defenseman of his generation, the most notable captain of his era and a Cup winner in Boston. All of them are slam dunk Hall of Famers.
