Loved Dino, but am not convinced he belongs... definitely not before a number of other players.
I think he was a better player than Nieuwendyk, but not having a Cup obviously kills your chances - as well as the whole character issues.
He's a true compiler who racked up a ton of goals without ever really being a dominant player in the game (scored over 50 goals only twice and never a post-season all-star at RW). I like to see guys with high peaks but low careers (Bure, Lindros) in before the guys with high career but lower peaks (Ciccarelli, Niewendyk, Adreychuk, Fleury).
Players like Makarov, Howe, Oates, Gilmour, Vachon and Tremblay had both peak and career.
