I have a really hard time saying anything bad about a strong power forward who won four Cups and got two post-season all-stars selections. That's four more Cups than any of us will ever own.

But those four Cups are the reason he's in. To me, Glenn Anderson is more deserving of enshrinement, and I don't think Anderson's good enough, either. Gillies' best offensive seasons came before he won a Cup.

He was a heck of a player. He was an important part, but not one of the five best players, on one of the greatest teams in NHL history. He wasn't Trottier, Bossy, Potvin, Smith, or even Tonelli or Nystrom. He's not an HHOF player.
