No. 20: RW Cliff Koroll (1969-80)

Since I used Secord earlier in this countdown, Koroll is the next-best option. (It could’ve been Brandon Saad, if he had been able to stick around longer). Koroll spent his entire 11-year NHL career in Chicago and, like Nesterenko at No. 15, he was just excellent at being consistent.

Koroll played in 72 or more games in all but his final season and potted 31 or more points in each of those years as well. He surpassed 50 points four different times and finished with a positive rating all but two seasons. He did much of this at even-strength, too.

Koroll was also solid in the postseason despite never winning a Cup. He posted 16 points in 18 games in 1971, 10 in 16 in 1973 and seven in 11 in 1974.
