Good for Cheli and Shanny!  Though I don't like the idea that Pat Burns got passed on again.  Kinda sucks.  At least Lindros and Roenick didn't get it.  Thank you for small favors!

Just wanted to see Shanny and Cheli in there. I am very pleased.


Is there a kickstarter campaign for Jakub Kindl to never play another NHL game?

Funny group for me personally, Chelios I always hated until he became a Wing, Shanny was top 5 of my all time favs and now I can't handle him and Niedermayer was a guy I always tried to not like because he played for the Devils and then the Ducks but he is such a class act it's hard to not like him.  Congrats to all 3

Shocking!  Unbelievable!  Amazing!

 

Cheli actually retired in his own lifetime!

 

All three are deserving (even though Needaweiner has an Ick factor).

Niedermayer's playoff beard alone deserves it's place in the HHoF...

Great to see Shanny and Cheli get in too.  Very deserving class this year.

"And the best, I must confess, I have saved for the last, for the ruler of this Christmas land,

is a fearsome king with a deep mighty voice, least, that's what I've come to understand.

And I've also heard it told, that he's something to behold, like a lobster, huge and red!

When he sets out to slay with his rain gear on, carting bulging sacks with his big great arms, that is so I've heard it said.

And on a dark cold night, under full moon light, he flies into a fog like a vulture in the sky!

And they call him Sandy Claws!

Of the past 18 players to be inducted into the HHoF, six won a Cup with the Wings.

Ok let's play one of my favourite games: how many of the 2002 cup winning team make the HOF?

More than half of the starting roster will be in. Larionov, Robitaille, Hull, Yzerman, Chelios, and Shanahan are already there. Hasek and Lidstrom are locks in their respective first years of eligibility. Fedorov and Datsyuk are almost sure to make it in also.

I'm not a huge Niedermeyer fan but I acknowledge he was a really good player and won Cups. Cheli and Shanny were no brainers in my opinion. Lindros and Roenick would have gotten in if there weren;t so many other stronger candidates, and I don't think either deserves it, even though I like JR.

Congrats Shanny and Cheli!

I'm not convinced that Lindros ever gets in & if he does, it's going to take quite a while.

I think that would be more than any other team, only the Montreal teams in the 70s compete and I think they 8 inductees.

I feel for Burns but Fred Shero deserved to be in the hall for decades and it's a shame he never got to see his enshrinement after the success he had in the 70's. That was one of the longest overdue inductions in the NHL.

Congratulations to everyone well deserved. Although I hated Niedermayer as a Duck - he was just too damn good - class act and easily #2 behind Lidström in this era. Can't wait for the perfect human to finally to get in.

Well deserved by all three. I'm glad that arrogant ***** JR didn't make it.
