Curious On Something

Has there ever been a poll done of the top player in the history of each team?

Not entirely sure, but not in recent history that I can re-call. So feel free..... I guess we could start alphabetically or you can start with your own team. For example;

Flyers
Parent
Clarke
Lindros

Islanders
Smith
Trottier
Bossy

Guess you could have, 3-5-10 picks per club, obviously the pre-67's containing more players.

Yes, and there is a poll thread in the general forum, and they're currently going through all the teams top 10 players..

Can't say I agree with some of the picks but there are obvious players for every team that are legendary (at least teams with a history)...

I know you didn't rank those in order...

I wouldn't be shocked if the main board did put Smith above a guy like Potvin tho in a poll.

The main problem with these types discussions is that people generally don't specify how to designate players before they start their lists. For example - who is the greatest defenceman to ever play for the Blackhawks - Chris Chelios or Bobby Orr? Is Doug Harvey the top defenceman for four teams?

Well that's where fans need to take "team" into context..

Neither Chelios or Orr were the best defensemen for the Blackhawks. I'd probably rank Pilote above both (as a Hawk). Of course guys like Bill White would never make it into the discussion, also guys like Keith Brown, Bill Murray or even Doug Wilson (at least not on the main board polls) I'm sure they're considered but severely overlook... I'm sure Maggy would make it...
