in my opinion the only one who doesn't have a shot is St Louis. Hes almost 32 and has only 1 standout season under his belt, pending the results of this season of course. Even if he puts together another 3 or 4 top 10 seasons i dont think it's enough.
It's simply too much of a crap shoot.

But anyway, I'll say St. Louis is most likely to get in. It would be too unprecident for a Hart/Ross/Cup winner to not make it. He's already had a better career than Tommy Anderson and is close to matching Cooney Weiland.

I'm not hung up on St. Louis' age like some are. The thing about St. Louis is he didn't crack the NHL until later in his career, so he doesn't have the mileage that other players do at age 32. He also keeps himself in excellent shape, and his strength is very impressive for a player with his diminutive stature. He strikes me as the type who will be able to play at a very high level until his late 30s.

A lot of people (myself included) wrote him off after last season. But he's played wonderful hockey this year, and has a shot at finishing No. 2 in the scoring race. As long as he is healthy, and as long as Lecavalier's head is on straight, there's no reason he can't remain a top five or 10 scorer for several more years. And if he does that, and accentuates his playoff portfolio (he played a key role on a Cup champion, and played very well in the 2003 playoffs) the HHOF awaits.

IMO Lecavalier is probably the most likely. He's young and the most talented of the 3. However St. Louis has an outside shot if he can have another 3-4 years of what he is doing right now. Also winning another cup together would help immensely.

Richards will make it in. He's the Sakic to Lecav's Forsberg.

I think it'll be Richards, he has been the most consistent over the last few seasons of the three.

And just because Vinny and Martin are having terrific seasons compared to Brad, a lot of people are sweeping him under the rug.

St. Louis is too old, and Richards sucks.

Vinny is getting better every year and if he reaches his full potential he has a good shot.

Another example of HF mentality: One down year and all of a sudden a player "sucks".

Still way too early to judge on Brad and Vinny. If Vinny keeps this type of play up for 6-7 seasons, he can have an argument. Brad needs to regain his form of previous seasons to be in the discussion, but he seems more like a guy who will put up some good numbers when his career is over, but not HOF worthy. Another cup run or two would help their cases. Marty is a great story, but I think the great play in his career started too late. He'd have to have a really extraordinary finish to his career to have an argument.

No I meant Forsberg is a flashier more talented player but over their full careers Richards will be just as valuable a player as Lecav. Just like comparing Sakic to Forsberg.
