The fact that Sundin got the nod before Shannahan shows what a joke the HHOF is...

More games, more years, 3 cups..

Too Bad Shanny never played for the Blue and White

I agree vic, was just saying to my carpooler why would Sundin get in other than being a Toronto player.

A little shocked Shanahan didn't get in to tell you the truth. 656 goals (13th most in history), 698 assists (51st most), 1354 points (25th), 2489 PIMS (22nd).

...yeah tough with only 4.

Sakic a given.

Bure how long can you keep him hanging?

So Shanny, Oates, Sundin.

Possibly should have gone Shanahan, Sakic, Bure and a coin flip between Adam and Mats.

:hmmm:

Brendan got mowed down by the Mats Sundin Maple Leaf wagon.
A different goddamn hockey talk messageboard!

It's honestly hard to argue with any of those 5 getting in. It is the Hockey Hall of Fame and along with an excellent NHL resume Sundin has a nice international resume as well. Shanny will get in at some point I was just surprised that 656 goal didn't get him in on first ballot.

Sundin is actually only the second Swede (the other being Salming) to be recognised by the HHOF. :o

Not sure that had anything to do with anything, but still.
I guess, in time, Forsberg and Lidström will join them.

Who knows, perhaps even the Sedins some day? :?
