Chris Chelios is undoubtedly the greatest American born player to ever play the game of hockey so Illinois obviously deserves a place in the top 5. Even without a D1 team, Illinois is always one of the top NHL and D1 producing states and ever sense the Blackhawks have become a dynasty, they will continue to get better and better. Not to mention that Illinois is Brett Hull's home state
