Top 5 Players for Every NHL Team - Chicago Blackhawks

I think this one is another no brainer maybe a fight for the 5 spot. Again only decide based on the play for this team. Voting will end 24 hours from now.

PICK 5.

Oh and hopefully I'm not missing anyone this time.

Edit: For some reason even though I checked make multiple options available it didn't work.

Won't let you vote for more than one so I will wait for it to be fixed.

Not that it will make any difference But Larmer on the list but not litzenberger or Mosienko makes no sense to me.

When it is fixed, I will go with:

Hull
Mikita
Hall
Pilote
Doug Bentley

I am sure the first 4 will prevail while # 5 is up for grabs. Interesting, that the top 4 come from the same era.

Well.... Larmer really DESERVES to be on this list. Even though I would never vote for him.

Hull, Mikita, Hall, Pilote and Seibert for me. IMO, easier than for the Bruins.

As mentioned in another thread, I can't fix it.

If the poll gets started in a new thread, I can move all of these posts to that one.

OK, but not before Mosie or Litz. None of these 3 will make top 5 anyway.

My choices:

(1) Bobby Hull
(2) Stan Mikita
(3) Glenn Hall
(4) Tony Esposito
(5) Pierre Pilote

ESPN's John Buccigross, in his "Ultimate NHL Mt. Rushmore list," had some of the same guys, but no honorary mention even to Pierre Pilote!

Hull, Mikita, Pilote and Hall would be the no-brainers. No. 5 would have been a tough call. Doug Bentley, Chuck Gardiner, Chris Chelios and Earl Seibert would have been the top candidates. Bentley was named Chicago's greatest player for the first half of the 20th century, for what it's worth.

Max Bentley was a better player than Doug, Gardiner, Chelios and Seibert, but he only played five seasons in Chicago - not enough to top others who meant more to the franchise.

I went with Hull, Mikita, Hall, Pilote, and Chelios. The first 4 were easy, while Chelios over Esposito and Bentley was a proverbial coin flip.

Bobby Hull and Stan Mikita are the clear 1a and 1b, and I'm tempted to name Mikita as the best Hawk because I think so highly of him and he played quite a bit longer with the team then Hull did.

I know some won't agree with my choice for the third spot to Denis Savard, but this guy was the face of the franchise throughout the 1980's. Yes he didn't do much in the way of accomplishments because of his era, but I don't usually look at relative dominance much for the more recent years I was/am able to watch.

From what I have seen of him, his talent level was simply immense, and he was clearly a very smart and creative Player. He had linemates that were very well suited to him (I don't think you can find a better Player on the wing for Savard than Steve Larmer). Sometimes I wonder why he didn't do more with all of that, and I tend to think the guy underachieved.

Still, 1000 points in a decade, just one of five guys who did that and two top 3 finishes in an era of what I consider the best Offensive talent ever by some margin is very impressive. He was a great Playoff performer, and while he wasn't good Defensively and an average Player without the puck, he was quite the chippy one, always wanting to win.

Fourth would be Pierre Pilote although I mistakenly voted Chris Chelios (saw Pilote then saw Chelios below him and thought I rank Chelios higher than Pilote completely forgetting Hawks only).

The fifth spot I gave to Earl Seibert despite many deserving Players like Chelios, the Bentley brothers, Glenn Hall, Tony Esposito, and Ed Belfour.

Of course Seibert is an enigma for me and it's very hard to rate him (or even the Bentley brothers for that matter), but with that being said, of all the things I've read in the Media for pre-WWII Players, Howie Morenz, Bill Cook, and Seibert are the most impressive. Seibert was considered by some to be basically as good as Eddie Shore (some said he was better and just didn't get recognition), and an absolute Defensive stalwart, and while that isn't the type of Player I prefer the most, if I have to rank Shore somewhere, Seibert shouldn't be far behind.

Who would you rank higher, Denis Savard or Bill Mosienko? I say bill is one of the most underrated wingers ever. He's certainly better than Steve Larmer.

Denis Savard.

Mosienko was a good player, but I root for Savard in this one.

Not sure why you think he is one of the most underrated ever. Mosienko was good, but never great(Other than his scoring 3 goals in 21 seconds moment of fame).

Savard had a few years of "Great" and many clutch playoff performances.

He was one of the most fun players to watch ever that's for sure. Best one on one moves I have ever seen from a player.
