Richter and Leetch in U.S. Hockey HOF

Quote:
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Cammi Granato, Brett Hull, Brian Leetch and Mike Richter will be enshrined into the United States Hockey Hall of Fame as the Class of 2008 it was announced today by USA Hockey.

The quartet will be formally inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame in Denver at an induction dinner set for 7 p.m. (MT) on Friday, Oct. 10, at Magness Arena on the campus of the University of Denver. The following evening -- Sat., Oct. 11 -- the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Game will take place in the same venue, when the University of Denver men's ice hockey team takes on the University of Notre Dame at 7:07 p.m.


"The Class of 2008 is one of the most accomplished groups that’s ever been inducted into the U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame," said Ron DeGregorio, president of USA Hockey. "It is indeed with great pleasure that we welcome them to the group of hockey immortals in our country."

A very nice and a much deserved honor for our two players who never passed up the opportunity to play for their country.

Never understood why Leetch was never named the captain of Team USA again after he was the captain for the team that won the 1996 World Cup of Hockey.

Perhaps more importantly/impressive is Cammi Granato will be the first female in the USHHOF. Congrats to all!

There were still Olympics after Nagano. Like Salt Lake City.

yes, but if you remember there was all this talk about Chelios soon retiring and that Nagano would probably be his last Olympics. And USA hockey kind of handed him a token A, though many felt of course Leetch should have been Captain since he captained the World Cup team. but of course Chelios kept on playing and playing.

That doesn't answer why Leetch was not named captain of the SLC team.

true, i remember being disappointed as well. my theory is that by that time the Rangers were the laughing stock of the league. unfortunately with the Rangers playing so poorly during that span, bright spots like Leetch had their "image" as a player I guess diminished in the eyes of many. it still made no sense sticking with Chelios especially after the debacle that was Nagano with the room trashing. all i remember was leading up to Nagano USA hockey and NBC kept talking about Chelios in Sarajevo in the 84 Olympics and how blah blah blah, legend playing in his last Olympics as team USA captain...

I find it very disappointing that Richter only ended up on 3 all-star teams. His performance in 94 was incredible and what really pisses me off is how skewed his statistics are because of all the crappy teams the Rangers iced during his prime. Richter with a good defense in front of him for the majority of his career=HHOF easily in my opinion.
