NHL: The Game's Top 100 Wingers of All Time

The most difficult thing to do in sports debates is to rank players throughout the history of a sport and compare those who played in different eras. After all, how can you compare Alexander Ovechkin, one of the most dominant players of the current game, to someone like Aurele Joliat, one of the greatest Canadiens, who played in the 1920s?

Well, let me tell you, it is tough.

After doing intense research, speaking with those who saw the majority of these players in addition to some media members, I present to you the list of 100 top wingers in NHL history.

The list is compiled with a few things in mind:

-All stats listed are current as of the end of the 2009-10 NHL season

-The teams listed with each player are the prominent teams the player played with and is completely subjective.

-The stats listed are formatted as follows: GP-G-A-P-PIM

-“Winger” is defined as a player who, as reported by NHL.com, played either left wing or right wing.

Though numerous people had advice and opinions on this list, the final decision was ultimately my own, so the list is 100 percent subjective from my own beliefs and opinions. Enjoy the piece and feel free to leave your own rankings, agreements or criticisms of these 100 great players!
