Who's missing from the Hockey Hall of Fame?
Fri, November 9, 2007

With all the recent debate of Eric Lindros' Hall of Fame credentials following his retirement announcment, the Hockey Hall of Fame will induct five big names from the game on Nov. 12.

But there are certainly some names that the hall has not called upon yet that deserve to be there. Players who have done a lot on the ice during their career. Players who have won Stanley Cups, amassed a large amount of points or have been great leaders for a long period of time.

Who do you think is missing from the hall? A long-forgotten name or a recent retiree? Tell us what you think in our forum.

Sorry, But Bobby Hull is most definitely in the Hall of Fame.

Glenn Anderson is the biggest omission from the HHOF

I can recall hearing something about Hulls stats from the WHA not counting with his NHL stats as well.

Also that is why they left him off Team Canada one year because he was playing in the WHA.

Jimmy the know it all flyers fan. If anyone should be in the hall of shame it should be him or so he would have you believe.

I am not sure but I think Bobby Hull isnt in the HHOF because of his decision to leave the NHL for the WHA. I heard something about them not counting the goals he scored in the WHA for his pro career. It would be interesting to find out the exact reasons but I remember the talk of his points from the WHA not counting with his points from the NHL.

Where's Bobby Hull. One of the GREATEST players the NHL has ever had..
David Townson, 2007-11-15 22:42:48

Paul Henderson should be there.

How could I forget Cam Neely?? One of the classiest players in the NHL...ever. I remember he and Ray Borque got benched on national tv one Saturday night in Toronto. Rumour has it that he told the idiot resposible"I don't care if you bench me but you don't bench Ray Borque" What a hockey player. Great hands, lots of class!

I was never an Anderson fan, but probably he should be in. But I don't think it should be just about the cups. A guy like Ciccarelli to me is just as deserving and perhaps more, he did more without the support staff that padded Anderson's stats.

I also think that an element of historical significance should go into the selection process. Tretiak is there because of the significance of his play outside the NHL. I think Henderson should be there even if he never scored another goal after the Summit Series (he did). His last goal means more to hockey in Canada than all 894 of Gretzkys. So too, I think Lindros should be there because for a few years he was the dominant forward in the NHL and the off ice antics makes it hard to understand the NHL in the '90s without his inclusion. Put him in as the poster child for post concussion sydrome if you have to.

It is a joke and likely a planned block that the greatest goal scored in Hockey--Paul Hendersons is not remembered by that Players inclusion in the Hall of Fame. The Goalie that was beaten..a Russian who never played in the NHL is in ?? Embaraasing.
