2013 HHOF Inductees

With the 2013 Hockey Hall of Fame Induction happening this upcoming Monday, who do you think will be inducted?

For those who don't know, max 4 inductees per year in various categories; players, builders, coaches, referees etc.

List of inductees as per TSN http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?id=70789

Last years inductees http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/feature/?id=79311

Personally, I would like Makarov to finally get in but that's unlikely to happen. Chelios, Niedermayer and Shanahan are mortal locks, but you never know.

P.S this is not a Sundin vs Shanahan thread so lets not turn it into one.

Chelios, Niedermayer and Shanahan are no-brainers.

On the heels of the Bure induction, this might be the best year for Lindros to make the cut. Otherwise I could see Blake getting that last spot, and being the annual controversy.

I appreciate the Burns sentiment, but there's no explanation offered for why he would be inducted as a "builder".

Pat Burns.

I don't care about anyone else.
Should have been inducted when he would have been able to see it.

This is an interesting thought. I'm sure Lindros will get in once people start to forget the off-ice circus that accompanied him everywhere he went. I'm just not so sure that's happened yet.

I still can't believe Shanahan didn't make it last year.

I could be wrong but I think Burns is the only Head Coach in history to win the Jack Adams Award with three different teams, (Toronto, Montreal, Boston) so in my opinion that right there is a good reason he should be inducted.

Arbour and Bowman have 3 combined. I wouldn't put too much stock in the Jack Adams, it's very calder-esque in nature.

Andrechyuk, Blake, Brind'Amour, Chelios, Fleury, Guerin, Housley, Kariya, LeClair, Lindros, Naslund, Niedermayer, Roberts, Roenick, Shanahan, and Tkachuk should be inducted. **** the 4 player max rule, Cooney Weiland is in the HOF, he had one good season so you can't say that those guys above don't deserve it, all had great seasons and were game's stars in the 90s and early 00s.

Burns
Chelios
Niedermayer
Shanahan

Is my guess. I think Lindros should be in there, but I'll guess he will have to wait. I hope my all time favourite Paul Kariya will make it eventually, too. Five all star selections isn't bad, LW or not.

Pat Burns absolutely should get in, but I doubt he does.

You either get in as a player or as a builder. The list of builders who got in on coaching credentials alone is extremely small. You almost always need managerial/administrative credentials to get in, something Burns doesn't have.

Of course with Burnsie's illness you can't really hold it against him that he didn't get an administrative position, nor can you deny his incredible coaching resume, but the election committee is notoriously stubborn. So I don't expect Burns to get in any time soon, which is a travesty.

Yep. Let's just open the floodgates then. 4 is almost too many. It's not the Hall of Pretty Above Average.

Chelios, Shanahan and Niedermayer are obvious. Fleury will never get in, his career ended in a too controversial manner. I think Curtis Joseph should go in. He was a top 5 goalie for most of his career, in an era where arguably the three best goalies played (Brodeur, Hasek, Roy). Its not hard to figure out why he didn't win any Vezina's when you look at that.

I'd like to think the HHOF induction committee doesn't induct people on the basis of "well they're better than the worst guy in HHOF".

Chelios and Nieds are locks.

Fairly certain that Shanaban gets in.

Likely between Lindros, Blake, Kariya, and Makarov for the last spot with Brind'Amour as a darkhorse.

Burns should get in, but they should also create a coaches category, then he'd be a no-brainer. The fact that there isn't one and Pat wasn't one of those guys that stayed forever at any one team hurts what should otherwise be an obvious case for induction.

Nah, this isn't...uh...this isn't right. I'm sorry. I just don't want there to be a chance that someone reads that and thinks, "now, that's reality!"

Cheviots, Niedermeyer, Shanahan, and Burns for me.

Next year should be Cujo, Lindros, Andrechyuk and Makarov.

Fleury should be over Lindros IMO. Better stats, longer playing time, especially considering where he was drafted and what he did for the Flames.

Plus he has a cup.

Honestly, I'd be just fine if we passed on Andreychuk...I know the totals came out with all the shimmer of an aluminum foil roll's bachelor party, but the substance is a little bit thin really...also, not microwave safe...

With Chelios, Niedermayer and Shanahan all very likely, I would hope for one of the great pre-NHL Europeans to make it. That probably won't happen, so I would like Lindros or Fred Shero.
