Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Wes Goldstein at CBS Sports,
Five goals. Just five more goals over the course of an 18-year career and Jeremy Roenick would have had the credentials that automatically warrant Hall of Fame consideration.
A couple of passes off a defenseman’s skate here, a few less goalposts there, maybe a little better aim on an ice-long shot at an empty net somewhere down the line and boom, Roenick would have left the game with 500 goals.
Of course reaching that lofty plateau is no more a guarantee of Hall entry than falling short is of exclusion, and Roenick will certainly get votes by the time he is eligible three years from now. Yet, that milestone number on his résumé would’ve served as a fair reminder about a career that was among the most notable ever put together by an American-born player.
