    The Hall of Fame is always a contentious issue amongst hockey fans. Since there's nothing better to do, let's see who belongs in and who does not amongst some of the "quesitonables" who are in and those who are not. Vote for up to 7
     
  2. Bernie Federko
    Glen Anderson
    Clark Gillies
    Cam Neely
    Guy Carbonneau
    Mike Gartner
    Joey Mullen

    Hawerchuck, Neilson & Gartner FOR SURE.

    Mullen and Neely are close.
     
  6. Me too (did you realize you could vote for more than 1?) I did and Hawerchuk was my one and only still.

    there's even more I'd like to throw out starting with Harold Ballard (rot in hell)

    I voted for Hawerchuk and Gartner, and would have voted for Neilson but missed his name.

    If the vote was for someone who should never take his helmet off, he would have my vote. But not for the Hall...NO WAY!

    Of all of the guys Hawerchuk is the best of all of them, followed by Neely. I voted Hawerchuk no sweat.

    Hawerchuk is the only deserving player on the list. Others like Neely, Gartner, Lowe and Anderson are borderline.

    Neilson gets in for innovation, not for his coaching numbers. As a junior coach he was a master at defensive systems and was the first to use video to study the habits of his own team and the opposition. Teams nowadays can't even conceive of coaching without video and they ALL use aspects of defensive systems Roger thought up in the 70s. To me Neilson is the easiest "in" on the whole list.

    Scary, isn't it, that we seem to be doing a much better job of choosing than the official committee does?

    One that is not on the list but should, no MUST be going in to the builders category is Bill Hunter, it is sad that some are still holding grudges against this man for what he did for hockey in the west.

    How in the hell are people not voting for Mike Gartner? The guy scored over 700 goals! What does he have to do to be considered HoF worthy by the 21 of you who didn't vote for him?

    I went with Gartner and Hawerchuk.
