|1980-1981||St. Louis Blues|
Liut was the League's winningest goalie in the 1980s and a First-Team All-Star in 1980-81, when he helped the St. Louis Blues win the Smythe Division and finish second in the overall NHL standings.
The Blues selected Liut in the fourth round (No. 56) of the 1976 NHL Draft. He didn't arrive until 1979-80, when St. Louis reclaimed him from Cincinnati of the World Hockey Association prior to the 1979 NHL Expansion. He led the NHL with 32 wins in his first season, then went 33-14 with 13 ties in 1980-81, winning the Lester B. Pearson Award (now the Ted Lindsay Award), given to the most outstanding player as voted by members of the NHL Players' Association, and was second to Wayne Gretzky in voting for the Hart Trophy as the NHL's most valuable player.
