I agree with this article in that Bourque and Coffey will be elected into the HOF this year.

Kirk McLean? What the hell?

I had no idea he was even getting consideration for the HoF...

McLean won't get it... definitely not in his first year of eligibility... but he's still a former allstar who was nominated for the Vezina...

although this is the HOF... chances of him getting in are slim to none, and slim just went through his five-hole

I don't think that any of the other 1st year eligible players will get it either, other than Bourque and Coffey.

out of the ones passed on before, I could see Larmer getting consideration, along with Bobby Smith and Dino...

Larry Murphy is eligible, isn't he? The guy has 1200 points or something as a defenseman. Might get an all D HOF induction year.

he won't. No trophies, no cups, not a very long or dominant career. He'd be first in line for the single-save hall of fame, though.

Geez, McLean is my favourite tender of all time, but if he gets into the hall, it would be a joke. It's nice that his name would even get mentioned though...if for no other reason than the save.

Bourque and Coffey are locks and well-deserving of places in the Hall. Murphy is borderline but will eventually get in on the weight of his sheer numbers.

As far as goalies go, McLean is mentioned only because this is his first year of eligibility. Vachon would be ahead of him, so would Andy Moog.

As far as forwards go, the people responsible for Gartner, Federko and Gillies will eventually get Ciccarelli in, again on numbers, but I don't think he belongs there. Anderson is a more interesting case because of his "clutch" reputation and his playoff production. What works against him is the fact that the bulk of his numbers came with Messier as his centre. Having said that, I don't see any forwards going in this year.

Cam Neely should also get some consideration.

sometimes it's a numbers game for people trying to get into the hof.
I see a lot of competition from some of the greatest players of all time in the next few years...so some players that could have gotten in other years, will have a much tougher time now...
Not sure how many are allowed in at a time, 3 I believe...Bourque, Coffey and Mikhalov would be my 3 choices off that list...followed by
Kharlamov, Makarov, Murphy, Ciccarelli, Larmer, Hunter, Nicholls...and the rest.
Time some of the russian greats of yesteryear get their due...

Bourque and Coffey will be locks. McLean will have no chance of getting in. Dino Ciccarelli should also make this year.

i wish more international players could get in but it's mostly the NHL Hall of Fame. The only Russians I know of that are in are Fetisov, Tretiak and Tarasov (coach).

I'm OK with Murphy. I am glad to see Cliff Fletcher go in too. Overdue, that one.

I'm guessing either the Pens or the Wings. Do the players get to choose in the NHL?

It's not like MLB, players don't wear a jersey or anything on their plaque/engraving.

IF players went in with a logo, Id guess he would be wearing the winged wheel simply because he is still with the team as a Color Commentator.

but as JFF said, players dont go in with teams or logo's. Because this isnt a Centralized HOF, its a general Hockey HOF, players dont need to play in the NHL to make it.

Well player don't go in with a jersey like baseball but if they did I seriously think Murphy would choose to wear a Penguins jersey, after all he did play for a while there, had his most productive years there and was the #1 d-men in both Penguins Stanley cup victories.
