Yeah I don't really agree with that one. He deserves to be in, but first ballot is a little weird. Shanahan had many more goals, has more points, played more games (lower PPG doesn't matter as much to me), and is really up there in terms of "power forward." Cups. Second highest scoring LW in history.

Sundin's credentials mostly consist of consistency and international play.
