8. Brendan Shanahan (1993-94)

81 regular season games, 52 goals (8 game-winners, 4 hat tricks), 50 assists, -9 rating; 4 postseason games, 2 goals, 5 assists; NHL All-Star

Brendan Shanahan may not be remembered best by most NHL fans for his time with the Blues–after all, he only played four seasons in St. Louis during the course of his 21-year Hall of Fame career–but while he wore the note, he certainly made the most of it. That was especially true during 1993-94, the slightly better of two banner seasons with the Blues that rank as two of his career-best.

While Shanahan wasn’t the Blues’ leading goal scorer–Brett Hull held that distinction, lighting the lamp 57 times–he did lead the team in points with 102. In addition, Shanahan provided value as an aggressor, accumulating a career-high 211 penalty minutes. Putting it all in perspective, Shanahan averaged 1.26 points per game, as well as 1.75 per game in the playoffs. Considering his all-around skill in addition to his productivity as a point-creator, Shanahan was pretty much the whole package for the Blues in 93-94.
