I don't get why people obsess with how exclusive the team HoF is.
HOF's about how valuable people were to the franchise. RJ never coached a game, never made a personnel decision- hes hardly a traditional HOF candidate.

anyway, I think a long hall of fame list- and having people like Crozier is a reminder that there are a lot of people are exceptionally valuable to the franchise and would never get their dues outside of the arena. He's there precisely because he worked hard for the organization for 36 years and you had no idea. It pays respect to our own, and also the long hockey tradition in Buffalo.
