No. 10: LW Patrick Sharp (2006-15)

This was probably the toughest pick of the Nos. 1-10, as Tony Amonte has just as strong a claim to this spot as Sharp. But Amonte, unfortunately, was surrounded by a lot of garbage during some penny-pinching times in Chicago, so his efforts led to little team success.

Sharp’s efforts, however, helped Chicago break a 49-year Stanley Cup drought and win three championships in six seasons.

Again, setting aside (rumored) off-ice issues, Sharp was a key veteran presence for the Blackhawks in his time with them. It’s strange to think of Sharp that way, but he was in his mid-20s by the time Kane and Jonathan Toews came to town to really start the upswing.

After some “meh” seasons in Philadelphia, Sharp immediately made an impact in Chicago. He surpassed 60 points five different times and was generally pretty durable in the larger stretch of his time with the Blackhawks. He contributed five double-digit point outputs in seven postseason runs with Chicago as well.
