And NO, MATS SUNDIN IS NO FUTURE HOF'er, btw.
This said, Doug Gilmour totally deserves to be in HOF. And there's no "Leaf Connection" with this.
Of the three induced guys mentionned (Fuhr, Murphy and Gartner), being former Leafs would be the only reason to NOT get them in.
Actually, Sundin should get in ahead of Gilmour if you go by statistics (which is what the HOF is SUPPOSED to be about). I am a big "Killer" fan, but Sundin was at least as good, and has better stats, so he should get in easy. If Camshaft Neely can make it because of his movie career, Sundin is in easily. Sundin is far ahead of Neely in every catagory, and in less games played, plus he wasn't easily injuried like Neely. It took actual INJURIES to knock Sundin out of games!
