Hoping for some help here. Friend of mine has a Teemu Selanne stick, not sure from what season. Anyway, I told her that I will be shocked if he doesn't make the Hall of Fame. Anyone share that opinion? I've only followed hockey for a couple years, so perhaps I misjudged what it takes to make the Hall.
I still don't get how Sundin was a first ballot inductee. He was as consistent as anyone but he was never among the games absolute elite.
Yeah I don't really agree with that one. He deserves to be in, but first ballot is a little weird. Shanahan had many more goals, has more points, played more games (lower PPG doesn't matter as much to me), and is really up there in terms of "power forward." Cups. Second highest scoring LW in history.
Sundin's credentials mostly consist of consistency and international play.
