Who Deserves “Rafter” Status

from Evan Grossman of NHL.com,

In no order of importance, the first requirement is to have been good. Another is carrying yourself or playing with a personality that was larger than life, an aura that helped that player to almost stand for the organization he played for. Winning is another rite of passage to the rafters. And last but most certainly not least, you should have been loved by the fans.
You don’t get your jersey sent up there if you were the worst player on the worst team who the fans booed every time you touched the puck.
This week, Gross Misconduct takes a peek around the league and predicts which players the 30 teams should eventually send to the rafters.
