In Topic: Hall of Fame Worthy

Kickazz...Datsyuk and Zetterberg were not top 10 scorers for a decade.  Each of them finished top 10 only 2 times in their careers.  Datsyuk finishing 4th twice and Z finishing 9th and 8th.  That said, I do think Datsyuk has a good chance at the HOF due to Selke's....point totals are low though.  Guy Carbaneau (sp?) has the Selke's and decent point totals, but not enough and he hasn't gotten in so far.

In Topic: Brad Richards Retires

My opinion, as already stated is that Richards doesn't belong in the HOF....Datsyuk has a better chance, but I'm not totally sold on that either, the heart says yes, but if it was someone else, I'd probably argue why not.  I'll be honest, when it comes to forwards, my minimum requirement is usually at least 1pt per game.  I know there are several in below that threshold though.  I think being close to that threshold + the 3 selkes and cups will give him a good chance.  I don't like the cups argument at all (team sport more than most other professional sporting leagues), but it does factor into the thinking.

Yzerman won a Pearson, but he would have obviously been there regardless of that.....he's the Alex D example and then some

It's probably a relatively fair assessment, but at the same time, this is the result of polling fans and only 200 of them, so the results don't really mean that much.

Well, with Datsyuk, he'd first need to get into the HOF as that woudl be the minimum criteria if you look at all the others retired by this org.  Also, if you look at the rest, they all have the following:


 - Hart, Pearson, Art Ross for forwards

 - Norris for defense

 - Vezina for goalie


The only guy that doesn't fit that criteria is Alex D....but what he has going for him is 22 full years with the team and parts of 2 others, 450+ goals and almost 1,300pts.


Right now, Fedorov is really the only one that would seem to fit in the most.  The downside of course is his departure, etc, otherwise, I think he'd be automatic.  I can see the argument for Datsyuk, but it would certainly stick out as being different from the rest.  He did play his whole career here, so that's a plus.
