    Birth name was Ronald John Edward Ellis
    Forward for the Toronto Maple Leafs (1963-81)

Why he might be annoying:

    Despite being considered a Maple Leafs great, he never won an individual award or made an end of season All-Star Team.
    He initially retired at the start of the 1975-76 season, only to come out of it the following year.
    Some felt his decision to retire stemmed from the fact he was passed over for the Maple Leafs captaincy in favor of Darryl Sittler.
    He was given an ultimatum by Punch Imlach retire for good or be demoted to the minors, after the latter felt he wasn’t worthy of the money he was getting paid.
    He suffered from clinical depression in the years following his forced retirement from hockey.

Why he might not be annoying:

    He played in over 1,000 career NHL games.
    He played his entire career with the Maple Leafs.
    He was Ace Bailey’s favorite player, so much that Ace allowed the Maple Leafs to give him his #6, which was retired in his honor.
    He was a key contributor for Team Canada during the 1972 Summit Series, playing alongside both Bobby Clarke and Paul Henderson.
    He was a member of the Leafs most recent Stanley Cup championship team (1967).
