No. 30: G Ed Belfour (1988-97)

Our second goalie on this list, Belfour had some of the best seasons of his Hall of Fame career with the Blackhawks. The five-time All-Star made sure expectations for his career would be high thanks to his rookie performance.

Belfour won the Calder Trophy, Jennings Trophy and Vezina Trophy in 1990-91 behind 43 wins, a .910 save percentage and 2.47 goals-allowed average. He was estimated to have saved 44.63 goals above average in that season and posted a goalie point share of 14.0. Those are crazy numbers, even if Belfour was a 25-year-old rookie.

Belfour would win the Jennings twice more and the Vezina once before leaving the Blackhawks. His .903/2.65 stat line in his career with the Blackhawks wasn’t the most amazing, but there’s no doubt he was a reliable wall in the net while in Chicago.
