Chris Chelios

A few years ago Chris Chelios would be number one on this list, but I think Patrick Kane has changed that up. Chelios spent nine years in Chicago where he put up 487 points on the blue line. Like Tony Amonte, he was another bright spot in a dark time in Chicago history.

Chelios is one of the best defensemen in NHL history, and he is the only person I have ever been happy for when winning a Stanley Cup with Detroit. Chelios left the Blackhawks to join the Redwings after spending nine years without a championship.

Chelios was a playmaker with the Blackhawks, as he logged 395 assists, and he is as good as Duncan Keith is, if not better. There is only one player better than Chelios, and he is next up as the best American born Blackhawk of all time.
