C Cliff Ronning
- 306 Goals, 563 assists in 1137 Games
- 89 points in 126 playoff Games
Prove himself he did. He became one of the most entertaining and productive players in the NHL. Ronning had hands soft enough to stickhandle in a phone booth. He also has great first-step speed, which he utilizes in a variety of ways to help his teammate, most notably by turning on a dime while carrying the puck to buy him extra time. Ronning has a knack of finding the hole in the open ice and he is effective at distracting a goalie by using his speed to buzz around a net. He’s also tremendously poised, and despite his size, was never afraid to zip in and out of the high traffic areas. Ronning was particularly dangerous on the power play, where he loved to come off the wall and curl into the slot where he would either pass to the corners or slip in further to unleash his weak but accurate shot.
D Bob Murray
Legends of Hockey:
Chicago, with Bob Murray, finally experienced playoff success in 1982 when they lasted to the semi-finals. In a four year stretch, the 'Hawks made the final four in three of those years. Murray played in two All-Star Games, 1981 and 1983, collecting one assist.
He continued to play in the NHL through to 1988, when he finally went back to the minors for a short stay at the beginning of 1988-89. It wasn't long before he was back in Chicago and on the way to the semis again. The Blackhawks repeated the feat in 1990.
In 1990, Bob Murray retired, having been on five Blackhawks teams that finished one round short of the Stanley Cup. He finished his playing career holding the team record among defensemen for games played and was ranked second in scoring among the team's blueliners.
