Hawerchuk is the only deserving player on the list. Others like Neely, Gartner, Lowe and Anderson are borderline.
Neilson gets in for innovation, not for his coaching numbers. As a junior coach he was a master at defensive systems and was the first to use video to study the habits of his own team and the opposition. Teams nowadays can't even conceive of coaching without video and they ALL use aspects of defensive systems Roger thought up in the 70s. To me Neilson is the easiest "in" on the whole list.
One that is not on the list but should, no MUST be going in to the builders category is Bill Hunter, it is sad that some are still holding grudges against this man for what he did for hockey in the west.
