1. Patrick Kane

Patrick Kane, 30, might be the best American born player ever and could go down as the best Chicago Blackhawks’ player of all time. Patrick Kane got his 900th career point last year in his hometown of Buffalo, NY.

He is still in his prime. At 30, he just came off of his best career season with 44 goals and 66 assists for a total of 110 points.

Besides the incredible numbers, Patrick Kane has a ridiculous resume and list of accomplishments.

He is a 3-time Stanley Cup Winner, 2013 Conn Smythe Trophy Winner, 4-time All-Star, 1-time Hart Winner, 1-time Pearson Trophy Winner, 1-time Ross Trophy Winner, etc.

Kane has already done so much for the Chicago Blackhawks and he is nowhere close to being done. His most memorable moment has to be the 2010 Stanley Cup game-winning goal that brought the Stanley Cup back to Chicago for the first time in 61 years.

Patrick Kane is a point-per-game player and now has two 100-point seasons in his 12 years career with Chicago.

Kane is a very polarizing figure throughout the whole NHL for some of his off-ice allegations, but has seemed to turn his act around.

After being snubbed out of the Hart Trophy voting this year, Kane will have a chip on his shoulder this upcoming year to prove the league wrong. I’m sure both Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews want at least 1 more Stanley Cup before the end of their careers.

Their last two playoff appearances have been rocky, and now, missing the playoffs two years in a row has been tough on them. That is now 4 years without a playoff series win. That’ll get Kane and Toews fired up for another big season.

With a lot of young studs joining the team this year, this year has a chance to be something special.

Patrick Kane still plenty of tread left on his tires and won’t be slowing down anytime soon. In a few years, maybe then he will be considered the best Blackhawk of all-time, but there are so many guys to choose from.

Kane has shown why he is the best player year in and year out, especially showing up in the big moments.

Another cup with another 100-point season could seal the deal on who the best Blackhawks’ player is. Only time will tell.

Patrick Kane is a future Hall of Famer and will have his jersey retired when he hangs up the skates. Hopefully, we will get another 8 or 9 years out of both Kane and Toews.

Sound off in the comments on who I missed on this list and who your top 10 Blackhawks’ are of the past decade.
