    Who would you rank as the five best players (non-goalies) in NHL history who spent their entire careers with just one team/franchise?

    In no specific order players like Maurice Richard, Jean Beliveau, Mario Lemeiux, Bobby Clarke, Henri Richard, Stan Mikita, Mike Bossy, Steve Yzerman, Denis Potvin, Peter Forsberg, come to mind. If I am forgetting an obvious player, please add it.

    I'll go with Lemieux, Beliveau, Bossy, Potvin, and Richard. HM's to Gil Perreault, Mikita, Milt Schmidt, and Apps SR (I think).

    Good music (I saw Robert Plant open for The Who a couple of years ago :yo: ) and good addition to the list in Lidstrom.

    Not really, he's not in the same group as most of the players mentioned here.

    for the recent years, I agree...

    he's not in the same class as the beliveaus and Richards... but in those days, most of the star players never got traded, so Modano's achievements are great.

    Scott Stevens has played with 3 teams. People only remember him as a Devil. They forget him as a Capital and Blue.

    I forgot about Boom Boom coming back with the Rangers, but I had no idea Shore played 10 games with the Americans.

    But Milt Schmidt, Bill Cook, Perreault, Ted Kennedy (knew this one because he used to be my dads neighbor), I keep thinking Salming but I think he played in Detroit (someone could correct me on that I don't have the time to look it up), Couroyer only played in Montreal I think.

    1.) Mario Lemieux
    2.) Maurice Richard
    3.) Bobby Clarke
    4.) Denis Potvin
    5.) Jean Beliveau

    I didn't want to put Yzerman in there yet because he hasn't retired yet and could very well play 2+ more seasons and in that case he would be my #2 or #3. As of right now, he's probably #4
