The annual Hockey Hall of Fame inductions occurred today. They went as I predicted. In are Brett Hull, Brian Leetch, Luc Robitaille and Steve Yzerman. Also inducted was New Jersey GM Lou Lamoriello who enters as a builder. He built a New Jersey team that has won the Stanley Cup three times. All are well deserved choices.
Next year, the class may not be as strong. There are two first time eligible players who I think deserve induction in Eric Lindros and Joe Nieuwendyk. They will also look to past candidates who have been eligible for a few years and likely induct from that group due to a smaller class of first time candidates. Doug Gilmour heads that group. It is quite likely that four players will not be inducted next year.
