Bobby Hull
Mark Messier
Stan Mikita
Gordie Howe
Chris Chelios
Tim Horton
Rod Brind'Amour
Terry Sawchuck
Mark Recchi
Ray Bourque

EDIT : I was pretty sure Allan Stanley was the other guy, but it seems he retired in 1969.

I'm stuck at 10.

Duh...

Nevermind. You say packaged meat, I say "Boucher", which is "Butcher".

It wouldn't be embarassing if I haven't witnessed the guy with my favorite team in 3 different decades.

Modano is the 11th or maybe he'll be the 12 after New Years.

The 11th is Matthieu Schneider. I totally forgot that he came back for Phoenix in 2010.

Which means that there are actually 12 players who fits the bill, not 11.

Well George Armstrong is also missing 49/50 - 70/71 and Modano is def in there at 89/90 - 09/10 so either some in that list are wrong or there are more than just 11.

Played 2 games in 49/50, granted those games could of been near the end of the season so it was 1950.
Either way, with both Modano and Schneider, we're up to 12.

By the same criteria, Sawchuk also could of played his 7 games in the later half of the 49/50 season.

If this is not just the NHL, we could include Howie Young!

Carl Brewer and George Armstrong are both 4 decade players.

Stan Mikita played his last game in 1979, so he just misses. Sawchuk and Horton both played their first game in 1950, so they both don't qualify either.

So then the final list is:

Bobby Hull
Mark Messier
Gordie Howe
Chris Chelios
Rod Brind'Amour
Mark Recchi
Ray Bourque
Mathieu Schneider
Mike Modano
Carl Brewer
George Armstrong

agree?

... and now we wait nine years to see which 90s relics make it to 2020. LeCavalier and Thornton are good bets. Legwand, malhotra, Brewer, Marleau, Hossa, Kaberle wouldn't surprise me, either.

So Howe is the only 5 decade player?

Makes it sound like he played 50 years...

retired at 51, so ...throwing elbows in the NHL as a "terrible two"?

Luongo is signed past 2020 right?
How about Gomez?
Brad Stuart is another one, might have learned a thing or two from Chelios and Lidstrom.

I know it is being cheeky

but I toss out Tim Horton

49-50---1 game played
73-74 --55 games

40's
50's
60's
70's

It is being cheeky because even though it was the 49/50 season--he played his one game in march of 50
