8. Jeremy Roenick
The United States has really emerged as a major power in Hockey and players such as Jeremy Roenick was a big part of that; in fact he may go down as one of the top American born players in history.

The nine time All Star, cracked the 100 point mark on three occasions for the Chicago Black Hawks, and became known throughout the NHL for his intense and feisty play.  Roenick would play for five teams in his professional career, but regardless of the city, he was instantly a fan favorite as his style of play won over many crowds.  With over 1,200 career points, he would not be out of place in the Hall, but without a Ring, a Gold Medal or a season where he was a serious Hart contender under his belt, the case against him exists.  Still, there are many players in the Hall with careers similar to Jeremy Roenick.

Quoting Redguy:
I agree with quite a few names you have in the early part of the list, but Dennis Maruk is one player you neglected to include. He played just over 800 games so will never be in the HHOF, but he is far more deserving than 80-90% of people in your top 100.

I don't know about him being more deserving than a lot of the guys on the list (though I'm replying to a comment that is 3 years old). He is a less than a point per game player in an era where scoring wasn't down. He never won any major awards that I can find, nor did he win a cup. I also didn't see a mention of all-start teams or the like. It's possible I missed something, as I am not familiar with the player. I don't think he deserves to be in the HoF, though.
