As I said on another thread, if Cam Neely had exactly the same career in Los Angeles he doesn't even get looked at for the Hall.

He's a media pick plain and simple. How he gets in ahead of a guy with 6 Cups and 200 playoff points when defense is at its tightest is beyond me.

It's the Hockey Hall of Fame, performance on the ice should override all factors! IMO the selection committee chickened out on Anderson because they don't want any more bad publicity right now. And Anderson's off-ice life was colorful to say the least. Same goes for Ciccarelli but racking up points in the playoffs is so much harder than the regular season so Anderson before Dino.

So reward the nice guy, the woulda-shoulda-coulda guy and play it safe.
