Bure was great for a short period of time, and that's cool. But I was looking at his stats and it dawned on me that we need to play the "Players A and B Game" again...

Player A
779 games, 406g, 379a, 785p, 136ppg, 1 SCF appearance, no Cups

Player B
702 games, 437g, 342a, 779p, 121ppg 1 SCF appearance, no Cups

One of these players is a Hall of Famer. One guy is still playing. If his career ended tomorrow, should both guys be in the HOF? Identities to be revealed after discussion...

Meanwhile, Shanny gets snubbed. Ridiculous.
Thinking that player is Kovy.
