Håkan Loob is an overrated guy here in Sweden which happened to play during the high scoring eighties in the NHL.

In defense of the Hall, though, the number of HoF eligible players from the last 7 or 8 seasons that deserved to make it far outweights the number of possible inductees over that period of time, though I still think that the mix-up in 2010 where only Ciccarelli, Granato and Angela James were selected (supposedly the voters thought they could still only vote for/induct 4 players total, not 4 males and 2 females as is the actual rule) is also partly to blame.
What are you kidding me, you actually think the voters never caught on to that rule? Dave Andreychuk is a compiler that does not belong in the Hall.
