I like it. If Curtis gets in, the doors are wide open so a case can be made for almost anyone.

So the all-time leading US point and goal scorer doesn't belong in the Hall? I don't particularly care for Modano (some stuff he said during the lockout cheesed me off), but I can't deny his accomplishments either. He should most definitely be in the Hall after he retires IMO.

I'll leave the Kurri part alone, because other people have already said it.

I think the main knack about Olmstead was that Bonin was able to step, do roughly the same job... and earn a Retroactive C.S. in place of Olmstead. I understand that Bonin had an injury-shortened career, and could have been a HHOF, should his career would have been longer (hypothesis...), but still, we can argue that, for a short time, the replacement player was better than the original player.
Not logical. Bonin had one exceptional playoff and 2 or 3 average NHL seasons and you are calling him better than Olmstead & a potential HOFer. Bonin only got the job because Olmstead moved on to toronto where he was a key player for the next 3 seasons. Helped them get into the playoffs in 59 & was still there when they won the cup in 62.

Don't forget that Olmstead scored 20 as a rookie & set an assist record in 55-56. To say that bonin was an improvement is a bit of a stretch. I like Bonin but lets not get carried away.
