There is no single answer. Nor should there be. Just because I might not agree with who we target and why, that doesn't mean I think people should stop with their attempts.
Short answer, from my perspective, who the fans from the NHL want to see on the ice. Ultimately they play for our amusement. We have awards at the end of the year that recognize the players for their contributions. We also have the HoF for those that have had great careers.
Having said that, the voting system right now is a bit broken. I don't really have an idea what we should do about it, if anything.
