#37 - 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
35. Milt Schmidt
36. Joe Sakic
37.
38.
39.
40.
41.
42.
43.
44.
45.
46.
47.
48.
49.
50.

Newsy Lalonde

"was, simply, the greatest hockey player of his time. This brilliant goal-scorer, who once potted nine in a single outing..."; "...was the complete package: he could skate, shoot, stick handle, and pass expertly. He was also a skilled fighter with a volcanic temper. As a result, fans came out in droves to cheer him on or scream for his blood." - Ultimate Hockey

"was the greatest scorer of his era." - Total Hockey

"had an absolutely wicked knee-high shot that was almost impossible to keep out of the goal if he had a clear area in front. The only way to stop that man was have three or four players, more if you could spare them, and skate him into the side boards." - Lester Patrick

Lalonde won scoring titles at the age of 30 and 32. Newsy led the NHL in goals, assists and points in 1918-19 while captain and coach of the Canadiens. Also if you look in the NHL Official Guide & Record Book his 17 goals in 10 games for that year should still be on the "most goals, one playoff year" list. Don't forget that that's the year they called off the series because of the infuenza epidemic, so he would have had at least one more game to possibly set a record that would still be standing.

I don't think anybody else on the list can boast such a season to compare with that.

Brett Hull never received praise like that. I'd also take Charlie Conacher's 5 goal scoring titles over Hull's 3 as well.

Newsy Lalonde

Why is Lidstrom even among the options? He won his three Norris Trophies against weaker competition. He'd have never won one in the 1980s, going against the likes of Langway, Wilson, Carlyle, and especially going against Bourque, Coffey or Chelios.

Enough is enough already. Vote Horton in. Was the NHL's all-time leader in games played for defencemen until Murphy and Bourque passed him. At the very least, throw your support behind Chelios, who is far better all round and far more revered by those who know the game than Lidstrom ever will be.

Agreed on The Chelios Comment, I voted Lalonde but I can't believe Lidstrom leads the poll while Chelios has one vote.

I could argue that due to increased development in hockey infrastructure and higher standards of NHL calibre players, Lidstrom is better than all defensemen before 1950 (except maybe Red Kelly).

I bet if the Hockey News ever does an update to their best-ever list, Lidstrom ranks as one of the highest defenseman, and certainly above Chelios and Horton. Probably above Coffey as well.
