Other than somebody like Voss, who made it in as a Builder, it seems really odd to refer to Hall of Fame players as journeymen. I always thought that the terms was used to describe a player who is decent, but not so good that he becomes part of a team's long term plans, so he ends up bouncing around the league. Brent Ashton played for 8 teams in his career, but 6 of them before he hit 30 years old; he just couldn't establish himself as a core player on those teams, but somebody was always interested in having him around because he was... adequate.

 

"Journeyman" makes me think of guys like J.J Daigneault and Matthieu Schneider. Decent, could never establish themselves on one team, and then bounced around as expansion gave them opportunity to stick around in the league for a few extra years.

 

Hall of Famers who won major awards and Cups who played for a solid decade on one club and were traded because the owner of the team was going bankrupt? Not so much.

Yeah I guess you're right...seems weird to say Hall of Famers are journeymen and I just thought of it as someone whose been bounced around so many times...but looking at it this way I think more now that some Hall of Famers can be journeymen too towards the end of their careers...probably because they didn't quit when they should have and continued to play until they weren't worth as much as before...
