6. Glenn Anderson

Glenn Anderson would begin with his NHL career with the Edmonton Oilers in 1980, and before long, he was part of a powerhouse team with Wayne Gretzky, Paul Coffey, Mark Messier, Jari Kurri, and Grant Fuhr.  As a rookie, Anderson scored 30 Goals and would hit that plateau in the next seven seasons.  Twice in that period, the Right Winger would hit the 50 Goal mark twice (1983-84 & 1985-86) and would go over 100 Points on three occasions.

Our All-Time Top 50 Edmonton Oilers are now up

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 Edmonton Oilers. 

Debuting as the Alberta Oilers in 1972 in the World Hockey Association, they would exchange the Alberta for Edmonton after one year.  The Oilers were an original WHA team, who would be one of four franchises that would be absorbed into the NHL in 1979.  When they joined the NHL, they had a young Wayne Gretzky in tow, and after drafting players like Paul Coffey, Jari Kurri, Mark Messier and Grant Fuhr, a dynasty occurred that would win four Stanley Cups in the 1980s and one in 1990.  Since that time, they made the Finals once in 2006.  

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

1.  Advanced Statistics.

2. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL.

3. Playoff accomplishments.

4. 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:

1. Wayne Gretzky

2. Mark Messier

3. Jari Kurri

4. PaulCoffey

5. GrantFuhr

We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.  

Look for or All-Time Top 50 Colorado Avalanche coming next!

As always we thank you for your support.

Glenn Anderson

A career point per game player in his lengthy NHL career, Glenn Anderson had the fortune of playing for some excellent Edmonton Oilers teams and won five Stanley Cups as a result. Anderson may not have been as heralded as Messier, Coffey, Kurri and Gretzky, but he was a solid contributor in his own right, topping the 100 point mark three times and finishing two goals shy of the 500 mark for his career. Anderson may have only been in the top ten in scoring once, but the goals he did score were often in clutch situations.
