The Rink’s All-Madden teams

  

Last night during Season 5, Episode 10 of the Blackhawks Rinkcast, the panel selected their All-Madden teams to honor the late John Madden.

The selections needed to be in the spirit of players Madden would have liked and respected for their combination of skill and toughness. Each panelist assembled their team of three forwards, two defensemen, one goaltender and one coach via a snake draft during the podcast. To make things interesting, panelists were allowed to select no more than two retired players for their teams.

Below are each panelist’s team, organized by position with their draft position listed in parenthesis. Additionally, each panelist chose one honorable mention player to add to their squad. Please listen to the draft on the Rinkcast to hear each panelist’s rationale for their selections.
