    Well at least if Nashville would have won 2017 the finals? But still he has great numbers and Vezina from last year. He could still win the cup this year though. What are your thoughts?

    I say if Carey Price is HHOF then Rinne is there as well for sure.

    Not sure about Rinne, but I'm guessing this thread is a lock in the not-too-distant future.

    Pretty much. Very similar resume and performance. Rinne with 2 more vezina finalists.

    Rinne would probably have a couple more finalists and maybe another win if not for those weird vertigo issues 5 years ago.

    probably not even if he had a Cup, cause of the insanely high standards set by guys like Hasek, Belfour, Fuhr, Roy, Brodeur, Smith, Bower, Tretiak, Plante, Esposito, Dryden etc

    would likely need a Cup or two, at least one more Vezina and a Hart and/or Conn Smythe to be considered a lock

    He could win a cup this year and still wouldn't be a HOFer

    Price and Rinne currently do not deserve to be in HOF. Potentially yes. But as of right now no. Both need more Vezinas and deep playoff runs.

    1 Vezina in 4 nominations.

    It's a very impressive nomination total but to make the Hall he probably would have needed to won 2 out of 4 instead of just the 1.

    Not saying it's impossible for him to add another Vezina but it seems unlikely.

    Lock? Absolutely not.

    Is there an alternate reality where, down the road, they ease up on goalie requirements and he squeaks into the HOF after doing something substantial in the next few years? Maybe
