Nieds remains humble about chances for Hall

"People bring it up to me. I try not to think about it. If it happens, it happens. I'll deal with it then," he said. "It would be a heck of an honor. That type of thing is obviously out of my control. We'll wait and see."
That kind of "aw, shucks" modesty has been a Niedermayer trademark throughout his remarkable career. At no point during his 18 NHL seasons did the star defenseman even hint that his own accomplishments outweighed those of his team. Instead, the No. 3 pick in the 1991 draft has been reluctant to tout personal accolades -- especially the ones decided by other people. Like, say, the Hockey Hall of Fame selection committee.
"That's just my personality. I'm a guy who likes to go about my business and let things fall where they may," Niedermayer said. "I think that's how I played the game. Probably not going to change my stripes now that I'm not playing."
