actually, now that i think about it, niedermayer doesn't scream first ballot to me either.
if it were me, i'd probably go chelios, makarov, shanahan, lindros.
I'm fine with Shanahan in there as well. I will stick by my original opinion that the only reason he had to wait a year was because of his current position in the NHL and the fact that it might have shown favouritism towards him. I really don't think a guy with his resume would have caused a stir at all, regardless of his current job, to have gotten in first ballot.
Blake waiting isn't the end of the world either. So I can live with that.
