New York Rangers: Ranking the Top 5 Rangers of All-Time

4 of 6

#3 Rod Gilbert

Gilbert was the first Ranger ever to have his #7 sweater hoisted to the rafters of Madison Square Garden.  While still holding two (most goals, most points) of New York’s offensive records in team history, Gilbert called New York home and lead the boys in blue for 15 NHL Hall of Fame seasons.  While still employed as a member of the New York Rangers organization and a fixture at the Garden this very day, Gilberts time in a Rangers uniform unfortunately never resulted in a Stanley Cup winning season.

Playing right wing on a line that also featured Vic Hadfield and Jean Ratelle, Gilbert along with Hadfield & Ratelle averaged nearly a goal-a-game and earned him the #3 spot on the all-time list.
