All-Time Top Players For One Team

from Sean McIndoe of Grantland,

So here we go: the 10 best players in NHL history, in order, among those who spent their entire career with one franchise.

And I am throwing in a twist since you can probably name most of the Top 10 on two hands..

Honorable Mentions

Several players who almost made the cut:

Bobby Clarke (Flyers, 1969-84) — The toughest omission. He feels like he should in the top 10, but who would you remove? In an unrelated note, if you notice me limping around with a broken ankle later this week, you’ll know why.

Alex Delvecchio (Red Wings, 1950-1974) — Held the all-time mark for most games played with only one team until Lidstrom broke it in 2012....

Gilbert Perreault (Sabres, 1970-1987) — Holds pretty much every career mark in the Buffalo record book.

read on for the Top 10 plus more honorable mentions...
