Dino Ciccarelli.

Ciccarelli, who retired in 1999, scored 608 goals - 13th on the all-time list - and he did it after every NHL team declined to draft him.


Glenn Anderson, who left the NHL in 1996, scored 498 goals and earned six Stanley Cup rings.

Steve Larmer, retired for 10 years now, was one of the most proficient and respected two-way forwards in the sport, was a key player on Canada's victorious 1991 Canada Cup team, and amassed 1,012 NHL points.

Brian Bellows, who last played in the NHL six years ago, scored 485 goals.

Kevin Lowe, who quit playing seven years ago, is the best defenceman among the previously ignored candidates.

The winningest goalie among those who were previously passed over is Andy Moog, who won 372 NHL games. Vernon won 385 and Vanbiesbrouck 374.

They were all excellent hockey players but none of them would meet the description of greatness. If it was up to me, none of them would make the Hall.

The Hall, with its liberal standards, will probably elect Vanbiesbrouck, Moog, Ciccarelli and Anderson.

I read that article that called Kevin Lowe the best defenseman not in the Hall. Completely ridiculous. Mark Howe has had a much more accomplished career than Kevin Lowe; for that matter so have J.C. Tremblay and Doug Wilson.

Why is the poll closed, and to answer the question. None of them, it should be the Hall of Fame, with Fame meanign the best. I don't care if they don't induct anyone for a year. And please don't use the Gilles arguement, as the Hall shouldn't just be as strong as it's weakest member.

I don't know if any are great canditates. Makarov and Howe are the best leftover guys IMO. And Neely. Neely or Howe by themselves had as many post-season all-star nominations as this list combined.

Vernon, Ciccarelli, and Lowe are marginal. All will probably get in eventually. I think Lowe has the best claim as the defensive backbone of a team that won 5 Cups.

Anderson is probably marginal, too. I don't like that he never did anything on a team without Gretzky. 27 years old when Gretzky was dealt, and only scored more than 25 goals once after that. Plus he's an a-hole.

Bellows and Larmer are not HHOFers. Larmer might have had more of a case if he'd broken the consecutive game streak. Both scored slightly over 1000 points by averaging 70 points/year over 15 years. Larmer played in only 2 all-star games, Bellows 3. Bellows was never top-10 in scoring, Larmer was 10th once.

Vernon is the best of the three goaltenders. Was the #1 guy on two Cup teams, and won a Conn Smythe. Moog and Vanbiesbrouck were never able to win Cups as a #1, nor did they have much in the way of hardware ... both just had long careers as good but not great #1 guys.

If I were to rate this list :

1. Lowe
2. Ciccarelli
3. Vernon
4. Anderson
5. Larmer
6. Moog
7. Vanbiesbrouck
8. Bellows
