"We are what we repeatedly do; excellence, then, is not an act but a habit." Aristotle

One of the greatest philosophers in history expressed it perfectly. And just as his words rang true in Ancient Greece, they also undoubtedly apply to the players who comprise the finest roster in the history of the New York Rangers.

These are the men who repeatedly raised their games over the course of time. They battled with uncommon bravery. They represented the organization and the fans with passion, pride and power. 

They are Stanley Cup champions, Hall of Famers and multiple award winners. 

To them excellence was a habit.

Since the Rangers came into existence in 1926, there have been nearly 900 players who have worn one of the most famous jerseys in the National Hockey League. But the those listed here are the cream of the proverbial crop.

They played (and continue to play) Broadway better than all the rest.

Twelve forwards.

Six defensemen.

Two goalies.

No honorable mentions.

So who made the finest roster in Rangers franchise history?

Read on to find out.
