    Longest-Tenured But Least Effective NHL Player of All-Time?

    I'm not just looking for "Zac Rinaldo" responses here (though they're acceptable). What I'm thinking is more like, of guys who played a lot, who is the least valuable player you can think of, for whatever the reason? For example, is there a guy who played like a thousand games, but only scored 25 points, who somehow managed to scrape together an 18-year career despite being a generally unimpressive player?

    This'll probably end up being a goon, of some stripe, but I figure it's a fun summer thought exercise.

    LOL, good one. That's the kind of cynicism that made pre-94 Rangers fans such a rare breed!

    Of course this will be a goon, this isn’t school where you can cheat your way through.

    Pandalfo and Maholtra are perfect non goon candidates.

    Disagree, Pandolfo was a defensive role player, didn’t he win a selke? Malhotra good 2 way player and really good on faceoffs.

    Fuck that. Pandlofo should thank Jagr for his last 3 years in the league.

    Malhotra and Pandolfo are two players who made careers off knowing how to excel at literally one thing. They're perfect candidates for this exercise.

    I mean I think you can forgive a player for not being as effective when he was 36-37 years old?

    Pandolfo was a valuable player for the Devils for a long time and important for their cup runs

    Gill played over 16 seasons, 1000 games, and won a cup.

    He was effective during his time.
