I'd have been pushing for him to get in myself... but I also would like to see Roenick, Weight, Tkachuk, and a plethora of others (especially the star Soviet era Europeans who are still waiting) get in, a coaches wing established, etc. I'm one of the few that thinks the Hall needs to get rid of the 4 per year rule and be a little bit more inclusive especially with the expansion of the game internationally and even within the NHL itself.

... but then again I do rail against the Dick Duff induction.
