25. Pit Martin

While Pit Martin was on the other side of what would be a lopsided trade (against Chicago) that saw Phil Esposito and Ken Hodge go to Boston, this should not demean what he did accomplish in the Windy City.

24. Pat Stapleton

Before he was a Chicago Blackhawk, Pat Stapleton was a Toronto Maple Leaf for all of one day as he was left unprotected after being traded from the Boston Bruins.  Had the Bruins knew what Stapleton was going to accomplish in Chi-Town they likely never would have traded him and Leafs would never have left him unprotected.

23. Kenny Wharram

Kenny Wharram was with the Chicago Blackhawks for his entire NHL career, which would last 14 seasons and 766 Games.  Early, he would assist Chicago win the 1961 Stanley cup but realistically he blossomed a little later in his career and his first really good season in the NHL took place when he was 30, where he would be a Second Team All Star, A Lady Byng Trophy winner and lead the league in Power Play Goals and Shooting Percentage.  He was sixth in Points that year with a career high 71 Points.  Wharram would have two more 60 Point seasons finishing fourth and ninth respectively, the first of which was his second Second Team All Star campaign. 

22. Paul Thompson

Paul Thompson would win a Stanley Cup with the New York Rangers in 1928 but he after he was traded to Chicago prior to the 1931-32 Season he would go on the best run of his playing career.
