5 Chicago Blackhawks from the 1990s that deserve to have their numbers retired

Steve Larmer deserves to have his number hang from the rafters. Jeremy Roenick, Ed Belfour, and Tony Amonte also should be discussed. Doug Wilson made most of his history in the 1980s, but he played some in the 90s too.

So most of Wilson's accomplishments came in the 1980s. The defenseman did have 40 points in his final season with the Blackhawks during the 1990-91 season. He also made the 1990 All-Star team.

Also, I needed five players to discuss, and Wilson's '80s accolades were better than making a case for Eric Daze.

Wilson played 14 of his 16 seasons with the Blackhawks. He won the Norris Trophy in 1982. That was the season he scored 39 goals and registered 46 assists. The 39 goals are a single-season franchise record for a defenseman.

His 938 games played for the Blackhawks is ninth all-time. He is fourth all-time in team history in assists.

Wilson was one of the best defensemen of his generation. He is also in the Hockey Hall of Fame--he was inducted the same year as Marian Hossa.

Wilson has a banner hanging in San Jose and he only played two seasons for the Sharks. Although he was their long-time general manager.

Wilson was prolific and is a Hall of Famer. He needs his number retired.
