I think a lot of us would have fewer inductees than there actually are, which makes these two questions have different answers.
good questions. I agree the committee has set standard way too low.
my personal standards are much higher. I can't believe the hall of fame is now the hall of pretty good. they are supposed to respresent the best players in the history of hockey.


a very good example is Bernie Federko.
there is no freaking way in hell he should be in the hall of fame. Those types of players lessen the honor of induction. I don't think you could convince me he is one of the best players ever and deserves to be there.

Living in Edmonton and being an Oiler fan, I'll give another example. I love Glenn Anderson and he was one of my favorite players.
I honestly think he's questionable for the hall of fame.
He was a very good player, and his playoff stats are better than most. but is he really hall of fame material, or just a guy who was a cut above the average player in the league.
