As such our Hockey Futures TBD have added some new entries.

For those unaware, the Hockey section is the only team sport where we have a TBD (to be determined) section.  This is due to the Hockey Hall of Fame having only a three year period after a player has retired before he becomes eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame.  This is why we look at players over 35 who are currently active in professional hockey and place them in a potential vote.

Here are the new players who we have now included in this section:

Alexandre Burrows: A capable defensive minded forward who has done very well for the Vancouver Canucks.

Dainus Zubrus: A longtime player who played for many NHL teams and the Russian National Team.

John-Michael Liles:  A member of the United States World Cup and Olympic Team.  

Kevin Bieksa: A rugged two way defenseman who plays currently for Anaheim.

Marc-Andre Bergeron:  A stay-at-home defenseman who has played for seven NHL teams.

Marek Zidlicki: A three time Olympian for the Czech Republic.

Matt Cullen: A two time Stanley Cup Champion.

Mike Fisher: A gritty Center who played in the 2015 All Star Game.

Patrick Sharp: A three time Stanley Cup Champion with the Chicago Blackhawks.

Radim Vrbata: An All Star in 2015.

Willie Mitchell: A two time Stanley Cup winning Defenseman with the Los Angeles Kings.

This crop of players join Alex Tanguay, Andrei Markov, Brian Campbell, Chris Kunitz, Daniel Sedin, Dany Heatley, Eric Brewer, Francois Beauchemin, Henrik Sedin, Jarome Iginla, Jaromir Jagr, Joe Thornton, Marian Hossa, Mark Streit, Martin Havlat, Mike Ribeiro, Nicklas Backstrom, Patrick Marleau, Patrick Elias, Pavel Datsyuk, Roberto Luongo Ryan Miller, Shane Doan, Shawn Horcoff, Simon Gagne, Stephane Robidas and Zdeno Chara.

You know what we want you to do!

When you have an opportunity, cast your votes, offer a comment and as always we thank you for your support!
Another name has been announced as a presenter at this year’s Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as Snoop Dogg will be inducting the late rapper, Tupac Shakur into the Hall.

The two were friends and label mates on Suge Knight’s Death Row Records and had collaborated on multiple tracks. 

While there are still many details left to be ironed out about the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame Ceremony, it is fitting that Snoop that will be a part of Tupac’s induction, which should yield a very moving tribute.   

The ceremony is slated for April 7 in Brooklyn, New York at the Barclay’s Center.

It arrived with little fanfare last year, and it is no different this year, but we here are at Notinhalloffame.com consider this major news.

The WWE Hall of Fame has announced their Legacy inductees for their Hall of Fame, and this is an excellent way for the WWE to honor the history of wrestling that pre-dates their origin or also a subtle way to acknowledge important parts of their history.

Last year, the Legacy Inductees were Mildred Burke, Frank Gotch, George Hackenschmidt, Ed “Strangler” Lewis, Pat O’Connor, Lou Thesz, and “Sailor” Art Thomas.

Here are this year’s Legacy Inductees:

Judy Grable:  Grable was trained by the Fabulous Moolah and was one of the more recognized female wrestlers of the 1950’s and 60’s.  This may have been one of our bigger oversights on the WWE list.

Toots Mondt:  An accomplished wrestler and bona fide shooter in his day, Mondt is considered a vital cog in the formation of the WWE, during the WWWF creation.  Some have even argued that without Mondt the WWE would not even be existence today.  He had a very healthy rank of #17 by us.

Rikidozan:  Another excellent selection as Rikidozan is without question the father of Japanese wrestling.  Culturally speaking, he is one of the most important sports figures in Japanese history.  He was ranked #68 by us.

Farmer Burns:  Perhaps this one is a little curious, but he was the American Heavyweight Champion in 1895 by defeating Ed “Strangler” Lewis.  We did not have him ranked.

Luther Lindsay:  Another one unranked by us, Lindsay was one of the first African American wrestlers to become a star.  We definitely overlooked this one!

Dr. Jerry Graham:  This was Vince McMahon’s favorite wrestler when he was young and he was the founder of the kayfabe Graham family.  He was a main eventer for the WWE in the 60’s and was ranked #80 by us.

June Byers:  Another major female star prior to the WWE, Byers was a former champion who was almost at the level of Mildred Burke.  She held the #199 rank from us.

While we are excited that the WWE is continuing this practice for their Hall of Fame, we wish that they would mention it more prominently on their television and social media platforms. 

Regardless, it appears that we have some extra work to do in regards to our WWE Notinhalloffame revisions!
