Yes, we know that this is taking a while!
As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team. We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Philadelphia Flyers who have won their conference eight times and would win the Stanley Cup twice. Those wins took place in the second in 1974 and 1975, making them the first expansion team to win it all.
As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following:
- Advanced Statistics.
- Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL.
- Playoff accomplishments.
- 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 2018-19 Season.
The complete list can be found here, but as always we announce our top five in this article. They are:
- Bobby Clarke
- Bernie Parent
- Bill Barber
- Eric Lindros
- Mark Howe
We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists. Look for the Top 50 Atlanta Braves next.
As always we thank you for your support.
