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. That being said, we have existing Top 50 lists out and we always consistently look to update them when we can and based on necessity. As such, we are very happy to present our first revision of our top 50 Winnipeg Jets of all-time.
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 National Hockey League.
3. Playoff accomplishments.
4. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.
This one went a complete overhaul, which was reflected in our top five as seen below.
The complete list can be found here, but as always, we announce our top five in this article. They are:
4. Mark Sheifele
In the top five alone, Kovalchuk remains at the top, but Wheeler moves up from #6 to 2. Mark Sheifele came from #19 to #4. The biggest change in this group is Hellbuyck, who was not on the previous list, and is the reigning Vezina Trophy winner. The Goalie looks to have the number one spot in sight.
Many more significant changes are present on our new top fifty, with eight new additions.
Finnish Right Wing and one-time All-Star, Patrik Laine, debuts at #11.
Jacob Trouba, who was traded to the New York Rangers last year, moved up ten spots to #13.
Danish Wing, Nikolaj Ehlers makes his first appearance at #14.
