Hall Of Fame To Look Harder At Women

I have often suggested that the Hockey Hall of Fame should induct some women, but at the same time never been able to suggest one for this year’s class.  There are always a few ex-NHL players who seem to need induction now, thus making the women wait.  The Hall of Fame is addressing this issue.  Starting in 2010, they will consider male and female candidates separately and induct up to two female hockey players per year in addition to the up to four male ones.

This is a good move to get some of the phenomenal female hockey players who have been dominant players and pioneers in their game into the Hall.  I look forward to seeing Cammi Granato, Cassie Campbell, Manon Rheaume, Angela James, Hayley Wickenheiser, Danielle Goyette and others getting their inductions in the years to come.
