Had a very hard time trying to conjure up a top 10 list but IMO, #1 is

Teeder Kennedy. 

5 cups, hart trophy, entire career with the Leafs... don't know how that doesn't win.

Well, I think there are two quick things that come to mind. The first is that he scored 560 points in his career of 696 games and the second is that his Hart Trophy win is kind of inexplicable. He won it in a year where he scored 10 goals and 42 assists. He wasn't in the top 10 in scoring, wasn't the top scorer on the Leafs, wasn't a first or second team all-star and the Leafs were a .500 team.

It just reads as strange more than as a terrific accomplishment and it's not limited to him. The year before Kennedy won the Hart they gave it to Al Rollins, a goalie who went 12-47-7 with a 3.23 GAA.
