    Add Bill Quackenbush. I think it was Hockey Outsider who said during the all-time draft that Quackenbush was the Lidstrom of his era.

    Dit Clapper was the first player in NHL history to play 20 seasons. (And he did it at a very high level). He was the first player to be inducted into the HHOF immediately after he retired. Even though he had many fine seasons at right wing, his best were on defence. I voted for him.

    bobby orr , had he two good knees would have gretztky still trying to break his records and the difference is that orr was a defenseman and knew where his own blue line was. he was equally if not better defensively as he was offensively and we, the hockey fans, were deprived of how great bobby orr really was. kids today have no idea how great orr was. there never will be another bobby orr.

    And just to change things up, add Tom "Big" Johnson.

    And for those saying Cameron was the first rushing d-man, Cyclone Taylor pre-dates him, but he only played defence for the Ottawa Silver Seven ('07-'10) and played forward everywhere else. But when he played in Ottawa he was a rushing d-man, he was used on defence to get better use of his speed and puck handling, as, at forward, he'd be so fast that his linemates would have to catch up and the play would be lost, while on defence, they got a head start.

    Lester Patrick was the first defenseman to score a goal. He pre-dates Taylor by a few years as a rushing defenseman.

    Scoring a goal and rushing the puck are two very different things though. Granted, Patrick's accomplishment is a big deal and paved the way for Taylor, it is quite different.
