@AnsarKhanMLive: Hockey Hall of Fame announces Dominik Hasek, Mike Modano, Peter Forsberg, Rob Blake, late Pat Burns, ex-referee Bill McCreary in 2014 class.

Edit: there's some talk about why Lindros didn't make it. Thoughts?

Some of it may be my thinking that Lidstrom should've had Blake's Norris in '98 but I guess I always considered Blake to be a very good but not HHOF worthy defenseman. 

 

Am I underrating his career?

Wow, I didn't even think of that, BoS.  Dom was a first in several other categories and records in the NHL, too... so why not HHOF too!

@Bill_Roose: Hasek on playing w/ '02 #RedWings: "It was one of my best years that I played hockey. From Day 1 I never played with so many great players."

This is a great class. Even though there's two former Avs they were both great players. Never grew tired of watching Blake's slapper and throwing his weight around (unless it was against the Wings of course), I really miss the hip check from the game today and he was one of the best. 

 

Congrats to Dom. I still remember how excited i was when we acquired him.

I'm so pleased for the Dominator, easily my favorite goalie of all time. Well deserved.

For the young wings fans who want to trade away Zberg and Datsyuk away, Hasek was a good goalie type we had had back in the day, no one who would have ever traded him.

I'm happy for all of them, I think they're all very deserving of this honor, but I'm especially happy for Dom.  One of my happiest moments as a Wings fan was when he was traded to Detroit.  It was like we won the Cup in July.  We all knew that it was only a matter of time.  This guy on the Red Wings could only produce a Stanley Cup.

No Ozzie on his first year eligible.  Although having Hasek as a choice pretty much didn't give him a chance.  Maybe next year?
