Is Mats Sundin A Hockey Hall Of Famer?

from Mike Zeisberger of the Toronto Sun,

When looking through our crystal ball at the first-time candidates who will be eligible for induction next year, four names jump off the page at you: Sundin, Joe Sakic, Jeremy Roenick and Brendan Shanahan.

A legitimate argument may be made that this could be potentially the strongest class since the 2007 edition, when defencemen Scott Stevens and Al MacInnis and forwards Mark Messier and Ron Francis were welcomed into the hallowed Hall.

While Sakic should be the obvious slam dunk of the group, it says here that Sundin, the long-time Maple Leafs captain, deserves to get in during his first year of eligibility.

Legitimate among those who were in a coma during 2009, maybe. Leetch was a Leaf for a picosecond of his career, you’d think Zeisberger would have that on his radar.

If Sundin can get in, Fedorov should be a lock then.
