The Admirals unveiled the list of the top ten players in team history today after covering the first 25 since the start of the season.

Here’s the list in alphabetical order:

Fred Berry, Gino Cavallini, Wade Flaherty, Darren Haydar, Tony Hrkac, Danny Lecours, Mike McNeill, Claude Noel, Pekka Rinne and Phil Wittliff.

While the team is set to reveal its rankings over the next few weeks, I thought it’d be fun to get the Roundtable’s opinions first. How would you guys rank ’em? Or at the very least who’s your No. 1?

I’ll throw in the stat lines from each player’s time in Milwaukee to aide the decision, even though some guys simply go beyond the numbers.

  1. Has to be Berry. Yet I still contend that Ford should have been higher on the list.

  2. Fredo and Danny were a real 1-2 punch in the old IHL days. The team scored 400 goals in one season with them playing. Next comes Gino, Tony and Pekka.
