Goaltender Grant Fuhr
Forward Pat LaFontaine
Wings' Owner Mike Ilitch
Ottawa 67's coach Brian Kilrea

ESPN.com's article originally stated that Grant was the first African-American voted to the Hall. That's quite the amazing accomplishment for a Canadian. Somebody with a clue informed them of that fact, and the article has since been changed.

All inductees are very worthy. Congrats to all.

I was also pleased to see that swine Glenn Anderson rejected again.

The St. Louis Blues ironman goalie, and the native St. Louisan. That makes me happy. Congrats to all who made it!

Who are you talking about? Fuhr? Hardly a native St Louisan..

From the Hockey Hall of Fame web site:

"Grant Fuhr was born in Spruce Grove, Alberta, located just outside the city of Edmonton where he would star for so many years"


He is most definitely a Canadian and said yesterday on an interview on the radio up here yesterday that if he had to choose a team to go in the hall under, it would definitely be the Oilers...

LaFontaine was the St. Louisan (Louisian? Louisite?) in question.

Really? I always thought LaFontaine was Canadian (his name sounds French).

A very strong and deserving group this year. No Joe Cullens in this group.

In the issues of December 16th, 2000 to November 10th, 2001, we may have given the impression that George W. Bush had been legally and duly elected president of the United States. We now understand that this may have been incorrect, and that the election result is still too close to call. The Economist apologizes for any inconvenience.

I never said Fuhr was a native St. Louisan, but he played a lot of games in individual seasons for the Blues. The native St. Louisan I was referring to was Pat Lafontaine.

Can't argue at all with this year's list. Especially seeing as how Glenn Anderson was left off. I don't even remember what he did to piss me off, I just remember the hate Something about being a total glory hound, I think. Regardless, I don't think he belongs in the hall based on his career accomplishments. He scored a couple of important goals, and he was a reasonably consistent forward, but never anything special.

Fuhr was a great goalie. He was never the best in the league, but you can't argue his accomplishments: the dynasty-era Oilers never did have the greatest defense on Earth.

LaFontaine was the first really good American-born player I remember noticing. I thought it a shame that he was unable to reach his fullest potential due to various injuries.

Ilich's and Kilrea's records speak for themselves.

Still, nice to see the only Oilers/Flames goalie ever get inducted to the Hall. He was okay-ish in Calgary, but we still remember him most fondly for having Steve Smith bank a puck in off his legs during the playoffs.

Did they switch to basla wood recently, because I don't EVER remember seeing so many sticks break in the course of a game. I started counting at the start of the Flames/Wings game here...
