Should Paul Henderson Be In The HHOF?

from Ken Campbell of The Hockey News,

Let’s have a conversation about Paul Henderson and the Hockey Hall of Fame. A lot of people, including the Members of Parliament in Canada who unanimously voted to pass a motion to urge the Hall of Fame to enshrine him, think he belongs in it along with the game’s greatest players.

Sure, let’s induct Paul Henderson. And while we’re at it, we’d better find room for Jack McCartan, Roger and Billy Christian, Mike Eruzione, Robert Reichel, Petr Svoboda, Sandra Whyte-Sweeney and, after she retires, Jocelyne Lamoureux-Davidson. Start a campaign for those eight to be inducted and your trusty correspondent will yell for Henderson’s inclusion from the highest hilltops. Otherwise, it’s simply a case of Canadians thinking their accomplishments in the hockey world are more important than those of players from other countries.

Because all those people either scored goals or made saves that were every bit as important as the three game-winning goals Henderson tallied in Games 6, 7 and 8 of the 1972 Summit Series. More important, actually, because all their achievements were accomplished on the world’s biggest stage and resulted in gold medals, rather than in an exhibition tournament that raised money for the NHL pension fund and allowed Canadians to continue to puff out their chests over their so-called world dominance because they had defeated the Commies by the slimmest of margins.

It’s Team USA vs. Team Finland Going For Gold Tonight At The WJC

from Mike G. Morreale of NHL.com,

United States vs. Finland (8 p.m. ET; NHLN, TSN)

5 things to watch

Hughes vs. Kakko

United States center Jack Hughes and Finland right wing Kaapo Kakko, top prospects for the 2019 NHL Draft, are set to meet in the gold-medal game of the 2019 IIHF World Junior Championship on Saturday.

Hughes was unable to play in a 4-1 United States win Dec. 31 because of an undisclosed injury. He's the projected No. 1 pick, and Kakko is projected as a top five choice.

"There's lots of talk, so time will show who is going to be No. 1," Kakko said.

Finland defenseman Henri Jokiharju (Chicago Blackhawks) said, "[Kakko's] going to be No. 1."

Hughes has three assists and 12 shots on goal averaging 13:36 of ice time in three games. Kakko has one goal, three assists and 20 shots on goal averaging 14:58 in six games.

"I don't look at this as Jack Hughes versus Kaapo Kakko," Hughes said. "I'm just worried about myself and our team. I feel good where I'm at and I'm not going to stress over it. They have two NHL players on their roster, too, with Eeli Tolvanen (Nashville Predators) and Henri Jokiharju."

Hughes and Kakko last played against each other at the 2018 IIHF World Under-18 Championship in Russia on April 29. Kakko scored once on two shots in a 3-2 win in the gold-medal game. Hughes had no points on four shots.
