#40 - NHL All-Time Top 50 Player Rankings

This little game is to rank the top 50 NHL players of all-time.

It will start by asking in a timed poll who the best one is. After the time has run out on that poll, another poll will follow.

So after poll #1, poll #2 will follow, poll #3 will follow that, and so on.

The polls will keep going until we have ranked the top 50 NHL players.

A poll ends when time runs out. The expiry time of each poll can be found by looking directly above the poll options

So far the list looks like:


1. Wayne Gretzky
2. Mario Lemieux
3. Bobby Orr
4. Gordie Howe
5. Maurice Richard
6. Patrick Roy
7. Raymond Bourque
8. Mark Messier
9. Bobby Hull
10. Mike Bossy
11. Terry Sawchuk
12. Jean Beliveau
13. Guy Lafleur
14. Doug Harvey
15. Eddie Shore
16. Phil Esposito
17. Jacques Plante
18. Howie Morenz
19. Stan Mikita
20. Steve Yzerman
21. Glenn Hall
22. Marcel Dionne
23. Denis Potvin
24. Jaromir Jagr
25. Dominik Hasek
26. Paul Coffey
27. Ted Lindsay
28. Larry Robinson
29. Bryan Trottier
30. Ken Dryden
31. Red Kelly
32. Bobby Clarke
33. Frank Mahovlich
34. Henri Richard

The case for Dickie Moore:

"An excellent stickhandler and skater with a hard, accurate shot, Moore became one of the NHL's top offensive stars. He was also handy with his elbows and fists, and his aggressive play earned him the nickname "Digging Dicker." Although plagued with injuries throughout his career, Moore managaed to lead the NHL in scoring twice. He won his first title in 1957-58 despite playing the final three months of the season with a cast on his broken left wrist. In 1958-59, he established career highs with 41 goals and 55 assists, breaking Gordie Howe's single-season record of 95 points set six years before" - Total Hockey

"Moore had passion, could hit, could fight, was a solid skater and a sure stick-handler, and had a beautiful way of making touch-passes on the fly." - Ultimate Hockey

"If not for the sad state of his knees, he would have enjoyed a longer career. "Every time he put his equipment on we held our collective breath, willing those shaky pins to carry this consummate pro through one more game," said teammate Jean Beliveau." - Ultimate Hockey

"His resolve to carry on regardless of the hardships incurred was an integral part of his personality.", "Despite many injuries that caused him to miss a host of regular-season games, Moore was always ready to compete in the post-season." - HHoF Bio

Moore led the NHL in scoring twice, including setting the single season record at 96 in 1958-59, and also led in playoff scoring twice. He aslo finished second in playoff scoring after coming out of retirement to help lead St. Louis to the Final in 1968.

With respect, Malone is the only other player on the list to hold the single season point record, Moore has a much better all-around game. Malone was much more a pure goal scorer, and one of the best, but he doesn't match Moore in the corners and had nowhere near the playoff success.

Malone scored a record 44 goals and 48 points in 1917-18 and won his second scoring title two years later by again leading the league in goals. Match that with Moore's leading the league in goals and points in 1957-58 and assists and points in 1958-59, setting the point record at 96, and falling one short of tieing the assist record of 56.

That's fairly even, and I'd even give the edge to Malone, but now on to the playoffs. Malone has his name on the Stanley Cup 3 times as a player. He won twice in the NHA and got his name on it once in the NHL, but he didn't play a single Stanley Cup match while playing in the NHL. He never led the NHL in playoff goals, assists or points.

Moore on the other hand won 6 Cups and led the playoffs in assists and points in 1954 and 1959. He also led in goals in 1960, and as I mentioned finished second in playoff scoring after coming out of retirement to play for the Blues in 1968.

Malone was a better goal scorer, and maybe a better stickhandler, although that's a close call, but everything else on the resume goes to Moore.

Malone was the dominant player of the early NHL. You can make a case for him in the top 25. Moore was a fine player but top 50?

Joe Malone

Newsy Lalonde was the dominant player of the early NHL. He and Malone were teammates in 1917-18 and 1918-19. They each won one scoring title, but Lalonde outscored Malone 21 goals to 6 goals in the playoffs.

THN had Moore at 31, and Malone at 39.
