In celebration of its centennial season, the NHL released its list of the 100 Greatest Players to play the game. Throughout the rest of the season, we'll be profiling each of the 14 former Blues to be named to that list.
Few things prove the impact a player has on the game more than the rules that evolve because of him.
That's the case for Martin Brodeur, the goaltender whose incredible puck-handling behind the net is the reason many believe goaltenders now have to steer clear of the corners.
That's not the only thing Brodeur was good at. The Hall-of-Famer is the National Hockey League's all-time leader in regular season wins (691), shutouts (125), games played (1,266) and minutes played (74,438).
Brodeur joined the Blues in December 2014 after more than 20 seasons with the New Jersey Devils. Although he only played seven games in the Blue Note, he now serves as the club's assistant general manager.
