Our All-Time Top 50 Edmonton Oilers have been updated to reflect the 2021/22 Season

Not in Hall of Fame

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 post 2021/22 revision of our top Edmonton Oilers.

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.

Last year, the Oilers finally made it to Conference Finals, which considering their two young superstars, Connor McDavid & Leon Draisitl, was projected for them before now.

As always, we present our top five, which changed from last year:

1. Wayne Gretzky

2. Mark Messier

3. Jari Kurri

4. Connor McDavid

5. Paul Coffey

You can find the entire list here.

McDavid, who won the Art Ross last year for the fourth time, moved up from #6.

2020 Hart Trophy winner, Leon Draisaitl, climbed to #9 from #7.

Center, Ryan Nugent-Hopkins, went up two ranks to #17.

Defenseman, Darnell Nurse went up from #26 to #24.

We welcome your input and comments and as always, we thank you for your support.
