Our Top 50 All-Time Chicago Blackhawks are now up

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Chicago Blackhawks, a team of the Original Six.

As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following: 

  1. Advanced Statistics.
  1. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL.
  1. Playoff accomplishments.
  1. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2017-18 Season.

The complete list can be found here,but as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

  1. Stan Mikita
  1. Bobby Hull
  1. Patrick Kane
  1. Glenn Hall
  1. Duncan Keith

We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.  Look for our top 50 Philadelphia Flyers soon.

As always, we thank you for your support.

14. Doug Wilson

As one of the top offensive defenseman of his era, Doug Wilson was a stalwart on the Chicago Black Hawks blue line for well over a decade. Wilson was capable of creating and capitalizing on many scoring chances while still being a more than capable defender. He won the Norris Trophy in 1982 and was on seven All Star squads. Wilson could not only play the game, but he had a mind for the business of it as well. He served as President of the NHLPA and long after his playing career ended he became the GM of the San Jose Sharks. He has not been inducted to the Hall yet, but his chances are still decent.
