14. Steve Larmer

With the exception of his last two seasons (which were with the New York Rangers), Steve Larmer was a Chicago Blackhawk throughout his professional career.  A later round pick in the 1980 Draft, Larmer proved to be a pleasant surprise as he would provide Chicago with 674 Points and would make two All Star appearances after being named the Calder Trophy winner in 1983.  His best season was in 1990-91 where he scored 101 Points and finished fifth in Hart Trophy voting and third in the tally for the Frank J. Selke Trophy.

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.

33. Steve Larmer

During the 1980’s and early 90’s, Steve Larmer was a vital cog in the Chicago Black Hawks organization. He won the Calder trophy in 1983 and as a ten year member of the Black Hawks was a model of consistency and durability. While averaging a point a game, Larmer went on a streak of playing in 884 straight games and could have had a shot to break the all time record held by Doug Jarvis had a contract dispute not gotten in the way. Steve Larmer was not someone you would get an exciting sound bite on, so when he did have criticisms to say people took notice. It wasn’t often that the man known for his class to seek the spotlight but when he did it was usually due to a strong conviction on his part. He retired when he felt he could no longer be the consistent player he once was and he easily could have padded more statistics had he chose to keep playing a few more years.
