Steve Payne was one of the true greats in Minnesota North Stars history.  He was certainly one of the most gifted scorers ever to lace 'em up at the Met Center.  Chronic spine injuries ended his career before the age of 30, but he still managed 466 points in 613 career games - all with the North Stars.  In addition, he is the North Stars all-time leader in playoff scoring, both over a single season (with an incredible 29 points in 19 games during the Stars' run to the 1981 Stanley Cup Finals) and over a career (70 points in 71 games).
