I still feel Mike Richter should be in as the most-accomplished US-Born keeper...winning Stanley Cup, World Cup, Olympic Silver, All-Stars etc.   

 

Nieds is a lock this year, Modano is the lock next year.

 

As for the rest of this year, Shanahan, and Chelios may go in.  Blake is possible but I think Moginly is more deserving due to his defection and how it got the ball rolling

Lindros's holdout on the Nordiques is probably what cost him - would'va had an extra year in the NHL, probably a 60-70 point one.  But you can't have Neely and Lafontaine in and Lindros not in, it's just a sham at that point.  He is right up there with the greatest players in the game for short-term dominance.  

 

Forget those two...how could the exact same committee vote Pavel Bure in the season before and not Lindros. Wouldn't make much sense. Of course what you are saying...wouldn't make much sense either.

Neids, Shanahan, Chelios are locks. I would love to see Pat Burns finally, and I would like to see Mogilny instead of Chelios for supreme Devils dominance lol.

Congrats Nieds on the ultimate honor. Couldn't be more thrilled for him. Congrats to Shanny as well. Still annoyed Burnsie got passed over again though.

"Quite frankly, all the players are getting paid too much and all the contracts are too long," general manager Lou Lamoriello said. "But if you want to compete in this market and you want to win, there are some things you have to do."

He already said he will go in as a Duck....

 

But seriously, this isn`t baseball. I don`t think there is any team affiliation when you are inducted.

Chelios, Shanahan and Niedermayer should be locks...Mogilny on the cusp though he probably won't get in. To be honest I'm not 100% sold on Niedermayer either, but no question he had hall of fame talent.

 

Richter is not a hall of famer

 

Burns deserves to go in

 

Lindros...too many injuries. Andreychuk will be viewed as a compiler. 

 

Outside of 1990-1994 Roenicks numbers are very ordinary

 

Fleury would be a good bet if he didn't screw things up himself. He was on a hall of fame pace pre substance issues

The case for Lindros has been made twofold:  He did have a streak of short-term dominance, and with some of the other names that have gotten in (like Bure and Neely), he should go too. 

 

re: Andreychuk, his career really breaks down into three distinct stages, as far as his offensive production goes.  He's also one of those guys that played in both the Live and Dead Puck Eras, so that should be taken into account when splitting his career up:

 

'82-'94:  877 GP, 908 Pts, 1.03 P/GP

'94-'97:  206 GP, 156 Pts, 0.76 P/GP

'97-'06:  556 GP, 274 Pts, 0.49 P/GP

 

If Andreychuk had retired after the '97 season, he finishes with 1083 GP and 1064 points (503 goals and 561 assists)...this is Joe Mullen territory (1062 GP, 502 G, 561 A, 1063 points), who went in with the 2000 class. Only 22 players have reached 500 goals in less games (Andreychuk did it in his 1070th game).  That body of work should probably be enough to get him in, though just about all of his more productive seasons came during Live Puck.  But he managed to stick around and still be an effective, though much less statistically dynamic, player for eight more seasons and 556 more games.  Should he be penalized for that, for being willing to make adjustments in his game and become a different kind of player?  I don't know.

THE NHL MUST LOVE THE DEVILS - from who else? A RANGER fan!
[Mark Messier]: A big, bald attention whore with a stupid Easter Island-lookin face. - from who else? DaneykoIsGod!

Even when Marty comes back maybe Larry should put Clemmensen to be on the goal during the shootouts.
Can the coach do that ? Switch the goalies 5 seconds to go in overtime?
- Most priceless quote ever posted on a message board.

Martin Brodeur: THE MOST ALL-TIME WINS!, 12 straight seasons of 30+ wins, 3 Stanley Cups, 4 Vezina Trophies, and zero respect from too many so-called Devils "fans" who are either too young or too bandwagon to remember the much darker days of Sean Burke, Craig Billington, Bob Sauve, Alain Chevrier, and the talented but overwhelmed Chico Resch, among many others.

It's easy to support a great player when he's playing at his very best. It takes a true fan to support that same player during those rare moments and stretches when he's not. Babe Ruth went 0-4 some games, and sometimes Wayne Gretzky was held pointless. There may be such a thing as greatness, but no such thing as absolute perfection every single night.
