John Spano deserves a special place in the Hockey Hall of Shame.

Also do not blame Goodenow for the huge increase in salaries if it wasnt for owners this would not have happened. In the books that I mentioned it said that the most inflationary part of the 1994 CBA was the arbitration, but when players won their awards teams were not obligated to sign the players.

Funny thing about arbitration, it is a third party that decides the outcome and it cannot be overruled after. Also in one of the books it was talking about how a team went to arbitration (I think it was New Jersey) and Lamourello was arguing against the player and gave the arbitrator some stats and they asked "What is TOI?" How do you like that an arbitrator that knows dick all about the sport.

Despite what Wetcoaster might think, Pat Quinn dosen't deserve to be anywhere near this thread. Yes, he showed piss poor judgment when accepting a payment from the Canucks whilst still employed by the Kings, but nobody accused Quinn of trying to sabotage the Kings for the rest of that season, or anything else of the sort.

I think the name Mike Keenan, however, at least belongs in the discussion.

Suspended for life for conduct prejudicial to the NHL and being severely criticized for bring the league into disrepute and damaging the integrity of the competive nature of the game per the report on Quinn's activities ... pretty hard to see how Quinn is NOT on that list.

Just like judges - it is up to counsel to educate them.

I've heard that Bobby Hull made that comment about Hitler having some good ideas but going to far was a response to the growing black population in America. If so, I have a hard time seeing how he could have not have meant something racist.

1. I can't think of a player that ended/endangered more careers than Bryan Marchment.

2. Dany Heatley. Kill a teammate in a car accident that could have very easily been avoided, request trade, get traded, trash the city you used to play in ad nauseumm, and not serve ANY sentence time for your conviction of manslaughter to boot. He may be a great player, but as a person, he's a piece of garbage. I hope he thinks about Dan Snyder every time he hears the word Atlanta.

Heatley seems like a nice guy to me. Maybe not a whole lot going on between the ears, but a nice guy...

Heatley's pretty nice, a pal of mine in Kelowna was hanging at his friend's house and Heatley knocked on the door to introduce himself to everyone when he moved in.

Heatley is one of hockey's biggest **** ups. But, that doesn't make him a horrible person.

Just because he made a mistake doesn't make him a horrible person. The court decided what was best for him, so take it.

I would also like to mention Gil Stein, for trying to worm his way into the HHOF.
