from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,
Who might be the leading candidates to enter the Hall 53 weeks from now?
Truth be told, the group of first-time eligible players probably is one of the weaker ones we’ve seen in recent years. Along with Belfour, the list includes the likes of Trevor Linden, Glen Wesley, Derian Hatcher, Stu Barnes and Dallas Drake.
Of those, (Eddie) Belfour would seem like the only one to have a legitimate shot to be inducted right away, if at all.
Critics might point to some of Belfour’s indiscretions away from the rink as sufficient reasons to keep him out. We all remember, for example, the incident in 2000 when an intoxicated Belfour allegedly offered Dallas police $1 billion to release him without charges.
Or the 2006 affair on Long Island where Belfour was allegedly involved in a night club scuffle and Florida Panthers teammate Alex Auld ended up needing stitches above his right eyebrow.
