What would you guys say, because people are judging which players do and don't. A guy like Trevor Linden would be a guy I'd put in the HOF but not first-ballot. When Brad Richards has his first year of eligibility I would easily put him in the Hall of Fame. Most people would say Mike Richards doesn't belong in the HOF, I'd say he would. He has a WJC gold, Memorial Cup, Calder Cup, Olympic Gold and Two Stanley Cups. Also, was a former NHL Captain and lead them to the finals. Some would say no, I'd say yes because not only was he once a very good hockey player, but he is the only player to have all these awards. Being a first ballot HOFer, it's debatable. Dustin Brown? Captained a team to two Cups, first American to do so, but most would also say no. I'd say he'd have as good of a chance as Kevin Lowe does. Like players who were very good but careers got cut short due to injury, like Cam Neely. Personally, I would think it takes more than a Stanley Cup. Like today a guy like Andrew Shaw or Andrew Ladd would not at all get in the Hall of Fame. In my opinion I'd say: Players: Have around 1,000+ points and played around 1,000+ games. Goalies: 300+ Wins and 500+ games.
