Yzerman has played 21 seasons, let's not let him in either.


That would be pretty silly if you don't think someone who has scored 500 goals and 4th all time in points into the hall, but Bernie Federko can get in.
Bernie shouldn't be in either. Yzerman accomplished some impressive things in his career - he is deserving. By having Bernie in, it lowers the bar. Now a guy like Andreychuk is actually being considered.

500 goals and 4th all time in points is irrelevant. They played 80 game seasons during the most offensive era in hockey. They padded their stats by playing a long time. How are their accomplishments better than those of Cy Denneny and Howie Morenz? The truth is, they are not.
