Hall of Fame Worthy Players

Rate this topic

65 posts in this topic

It's simple, I'll list players that if they retired today or if they are just recently retired, would/should they be in the HOF? The players I'm listing are pretty much only players that would have people disputing. Remember, only consider if they retired today, not 5 years from now.

Mats Sundin - Yes/No

Eric Lindros - Yes/No

Peter Forsberg - Yes/No

Jeremy Roenick - Yes/No

Rod Brind'Amour - Yes/No

Mark Recchi - Yes/No

Mike Modano - Yes/No

Keith Tkachuk - Yes/No

Chris Osgood - Yes/No

Scott Niedermayer - Yes/No

Brendan Shanahan - Yes/No

Sergei Fedorov - Yes/No

Rob Blake - Yes/No

Alexander Mogilny - Yes/No

Curtis Joseph - Yes/No

Teemu Selanne - Yes/No

Gary Roberts - Yes/No

Nikolai Khabibulin - Yes/No

Those are only the guys that may have disputes (some of course may be unanimous). I think the only true unanimous ones are Lidstrom, Chelios, Sakic, Brodeur, Hasek, and Jagr.

Honestly, I cannot see anyone other than Shanny following making it in there first year or two of eligibility. Others off this list may get in, but it is a "if one gets in than nine more should get in" type thing.

You should probably keep the same list and ask "who doesn't make it?"

Mats Sundin - Yes-true leader, and with his points alone he is HOF worthy

Eric Lindros - No Unless they make a section in the HHOF for biggest dissapointments in NHL History

Peter Forsberg - No To injury prone. If he would have stayed healthy he would be a no brainer

Jeremy Roenick - Yes - NA player with 500 + goals plus one hell of a dancer, has to be HOF worthy

Rod Brind'Amour - Yes - Underrated. One of the, if not the best, defensive forwards with a great scoring ability.

Mark Recchi - No

Mike Modano - Yes - Without a doubt. No explanation needed

Keith Tkachuk - No - as of right now no, but if he plays well the next few years its a possibility

Chris Osgood - Yes - in the top 10 in wins as a career backup? Best backup goalie i have ever seen! Plus won a cup as a starter, the only thing that might hold him back was his stint in st louis and NY....

Scott Niedermayer - No - Based of pure hatred alone!

Brendan Shanahan - Yes - Scores everywhere he goes, makes players around him better!

Sergei Fedorov - Yes - If he wasnt so greedy and stayed with Detroit he would be a shoe in...hopefully his greed wont ruin his chances in NHL history

Rob Blake - No

Alexander Mogilny - No

Curtis Joseph - No - Washed up, should have hung them up years ago. Hurting his chances staying around

Teemu Selanne - Yes - To much skill to not be inducted

Gary Roberts - Yes - Love his style of play!

Nikolai Khabibulin - No -

had to go back and research some and then change my answers. look for yourself, not just regular season, but playoffs included. All of these guys have been unbelievable, I was actually surprised at some of the guys I originally said no to and then saw the numbers they put up.

Rod Brind'Amour - no

Mark Recchi - No

Mike Modano - Yes

Keith Tkachuk - No

Mats Sundin - Yes

Eric Lindros - No

Peter Forsberg - Without a doubt in my mind, he's been the most courted and overly valued player in the past decade, plus his two cups / mvp make him no doubt.

Jeremy Roenick - I doubt it, if he does it will be during a slow year in terms of retired players becoming eligable (though that could be long after all of us are dead).

Rod Brind'Amour - No

Mark Recchi - No

Mike Modano - All time leading American scorer? no doubt, he'd get in on that alone.

Keith Tkachuk - doubt it

Chris Osgood - No

Scott Niedermayer - Yes, most consider him a hall of famer.

Brendan Shanahan - He's been considered a hall of famer for the past 5-6 years now.

Sergei Fedorov - Yes, he has more points than any other Russian, he'll get in no matter what.

Rob Blake - I doubt it, but that's mainly because of the large number of players that will be retiring in his era that are simply better than him. He could be overlooked easily.

Alexander Mogilny - No

Curtis Joseph - Yes (thought I don't personally think he deserves it)

Teemu Selanne - Yes

Gary Roberts - No way

Nikolai Khabibulin - No, not a chance.

I'm not sure why Modano, Federov, Shanahan, Niedermayer, Selanne, and Forsberg are on this list. They're practically guaranteed to get in eventually. The rest of the guys are relying on the future generations producing very few hall worthy players to get in.

Those are only the guys that may have disputes (some of course may be unanimous). I think the only true unanimous ones are Lidstrom, Chelios, Sakic, Brodeur, Hasek, and Jagr.

Looking at my list, it's a little biased towards the guys that have won the Stanley Cup, with the exception of Lindros. Also, how's Shanny not a unanimous choice? Over 600 goals and 3 cups, that seems pretty unanimous to me.

I think I like Eva's list the best, but I'm still shaking my head at a couple things:

1 - I think about 7 people (pretty much everyone) say no to Recchi, but yes to Modano. I can't quite understand this since Recchi has slightly better stats. The only explanation I can think of is that Modano is American and Recchi is Canadian.

2 - Almost all of you said no to Neidermayer and half say yes to Blake. How does Blake deserve it more than Neidermayer? How does Neidermayer not get in:

Well, I think Shanny will get in easily simply because he has over 600 goals, but in terms of arguments against:

- hasn't won a single individual award for his play

- Is less than a point per game player.

Nah, I think mostly people just made a split second decision based on what they know...I doubt most looked up every single players stats. As for Modano, he's been more of a face of the NHL, more name and face recognition. Still even though he's not doing as well I just think of him as one of the NHL heads even though all of his seasons haven't been remarkable, do you see what I'm saying. This is probably why perception is bad, but shows you perception at work. Also the fact that he's American, but not because I'm biased against Canadians, but probably that he's promoted more here.

What's wrong with my list then? heh

1 - EXACTLY! Modano is american and Recchi isn't. That automatically puts Modano ahead of Recchi. Not to mentioned, Modano is synonymous with Dallas Stars hockey. He's a one team guy, he's been a tremendous leader, his loyalty is impecable. He's everything the league wants to promote about itself. Even if the hall's decision was between Modano, and a bunch of guys better than him, Modano would get in, because his induction is what's best for hockey in the USA. Not saying it's right, just saying there is more to these things than skills. Marketing plays a major role.

2 - I said yes to Neidermayer, and I imagine everyone here would if it wasn't for the fact that we're still bitter from the playoffs ( i know i am). But you just can't logically say Neidermayer won't be in there. Norris, 3 cups, conn smyth. Only Lidstrom tops him with awards and stats (well, and Cheli, but Cheli is a decade older meaning he's had many more seasons to attain those stats).

Modano is a first ballot hall of famer, no doubt about it.

I agree with the other's being kinda shaky overall, epsecially on first ballot.

Honestly, whether some of these guys are first year hhofers is purely based on when they retire and who they retire with. Federov and Forberg I could easily see as first year guys. Even Larionov got snuffed in his first year of eligablity, and he spent the entire first half of his career embarassing all the NHL stars on the KLM line (the best line of the past 20-30 years).

Well, I'd have to question the conclusion that Forsberg is a lock / no brainer, but Lindros doesn't get in.

Let me be clear, I could probably accept someone saying Lindros won't get in, but Forsberg will, but I can't understand separating them so much that Lindros doesn't get in and Forsberg is a lock. The only difference I see between them is that Forsberg has the cups. Is that enough to go from not getting in to being a lock? I definately shouldn't be.

You might as well add Scott Niedermayer and Brendan Shanahan to the list of unanimous. They're getting in without a doubt.

Forsberg, Recchi, Brindamour, Roenick might take awhile

PS: Anyone who put YES for Rob Blake and NO for Scott Niedermayer, your list is automatically thrown into the garbage. Seriously, "NO" to Niedermayer? That has everything to do with hatred and nothing to do with logic. The fact that people would toss Blake in there just compounds the insanity.

Well, I think Shanny will get in easily simply because he has over 600 goals, but in terms of arguments against:

- hasn't won a single individual award for his play

- Is less than a point per game player.

I don't know if the lack of individual awards will matter at all for Shanny.

1. He's about to pass Andrechuk for 11th all time in goals

2. He's about to crack the top 50 all time in assists

3. He's in the top 30rd all time in points

4. He's about to crack the top 20 all time in penalty minutes (speaks volumes about his style of play)

5. King Clancy trophy

6. 7 time all star

7. 2-time 1st team NHL all star

8. 3 Stanley Cups

He's got alot more going for him than just goals IMO.

I actually think you could make an argument for all of them except Ozzie. Of course, if he leads us to the Cup this year, that could change.

Modano is a first ballot hall of famer, no doubt about it.

I agree with the other's being kinda shaky overall, epsecially on first ballot.

First, thanks for your highly intelligent and thoughtful response to my suggestion. Second, the last part of my statement read "if he gets in then he gets in." If Modano is a first ballot HOF than why not Selanne or Sundin? If Modano gets first ballot it is b/c he is American born (b/c there are so few that were this good) not because he was dominant. Remember the thread stated, if he left now, and if Modano left now, he would not be a first ballot HOF but I believe a HOF one day.

I forgot, OZZIE is a lock! :sly:

Sergei Fedorov - Yes - If he wasnt so greedy and stayed with Detroit he would be a shoe in...hopefully his greed wont ruin his chances in NHL history

:angry::blink::crazy:

...oh sweet baby Jesus! Sergei took LESS money to go to Anaheim! Detroit offered him more mid season, but didn't give him enough RESPECT to get his personal prblems in order (Divorce & finding a new agent) beore he signed the contract. The Wings basically told him either signthis now or we're pulling the offer. So Fedorov being a man told the Wings to go f*** themselves and left when it came time. Disregard to crap lower offer the Wings offered him right before he signed with Anaheim, they were pretty much slapping him at that moment...

...with all that being said, on the list the only and I do mean ONLY locks are the aforementioned Fedorov because he IS the all time highest scoring European in the NHL and Modano for the same reason, him being the all time American scoring leader. That's it for guarntee's from you list...

...people with a good chance to get in are Shanahan, Neidermayer & possibly Sundin. The rest of your list is a resounding NO. They just haven't had the affect on the sport as the ones I mentioned. I highly doubt Sundin gets in now that I think about it...
