MOD EDIT: male genitalia

Hmmm, while that is true, it's not quite what I'm looking for.

Here's one more:

Dale Hawerchuk

And a hint: These Hall of Fame hockey players all share a certain distinction that they're probably not happy about.

kind of an odd edit, considering that the merriam webster online dictionary does not describe the word that was originally posted as being vulgar (as opposed to many other words that the forum automatically filters)

Well you know, there is one mod who has a special sensitivity to the use of that particular anatomical word.

It's looking like I stumped the band here. Let me think a bit about parallels in other sports that might help out here. I'll post later.

I don't do much pop culture and you could name a million athletes before I'd recognize more than a dozen, so don't let my snarky self be who you judge by. After all I killed this thread with my pop culture attempt (took 'em 3 days to get it).

Guess we don't have any old-time hockey fans here. How about another hint ...

If this was about football: Dan Marino and OJ Simpson would be on the list.

If this was about baseball: Rod Carew and Ted Williams would be on the list.

If this was about NASCAR: Mark Martin would be on the list.

But, since this is about hockey, here is the current list, plus one more:

Marcel Dionne
Brad Park
Gilbert Perrault
Peter Stastny
Pat LaFontaine

Dale Hawerchuk
Jean Ratelle

Yes I did... That was after several days. Besides No1 knew the answer all along. I also added a new item every 12 hours or so - or after every guess, you can go look, it's only a page or two back.

After the first couple I had to Google more to keep the list going. At least I picked something that I knew there were a lot of.

As I said before, I don't follow names, or sports... sorry.

No, that's not it. You should watch some hockey. Yeah, it's known for the fighting, but it's really so much more than that. Also, the fighting has decreased over the years so it's not as much as the image seems to still be.

There's not JUST fighting, but also, waiting for fighting. and cleanup after fighting.

YES! That's it.

According to the blogs I've read, these guys are amongst the best players ever in the NHL to have never won the Stanley Cup.

Is it that they're all alloys?

but Tin and Copper are commonly used in alloys and they do not meet the group requirements.

They are all metals
They all have a positive charge
They all conduct electricity
Without pulling up a periodic table I'd be hard pressed to tell you much else.
