It is days like this that we look forward to here at Notinhalloffame.com!

Today, the Hockey Hall of Fame has announced their Class of 2017, which will consist of Teemu Selanne, Paul Kariya, Mark Recchi and Dave Andreychuk.  It will also include women’s star Danielle Goyette and builders Clarke Drake and Jeremy Jacobs.

Teemu Selanne is the headliner of this group.  The scoring machine from Finland enters on his first year of eligibility and he is a former Stanley Cup Champion with Anaheim.  Selanne would lead the NHL in Goals scored three times and is a former two time First Team All Star.  He was also an international star with Finland, representing them in five Olympic Games and two World Cups.  He enters on his first year of eligibility and was ranked #1 by us at Notinhalloffame.com.

His fellow Duck, Paul Kariya also was chosen.  Kariya has been eligble for the Hall since 2013 and is a former three time First Team All Star.  Kariya went to seven All Star Games and helped Canada win the 2002 Olympics.  Kariya’s averaged exactly one point per game over his career and was ranked #3 on our Notinhalloffame.com list.

Mark Recchi was ranked #4 on our list and has been eligible for the Hall since 2014.  He is a three time Stanley Cup Champion (Pittsburgh 1991, Carolina 2006 and Boston 2011) and was a seven time All Star.

After a nine year wait, Dave Andreychuk finally got the call from Toronto.  The all-time leader in Power Play Goals was a two time All Star and won the Stanley Cup in his last season in the NHL with Tampa Bay.

Danielle Goyette is this year’s female entry.  She helped Canada win two Gold Medals and eight IIHF World Women’s Championships.  She is currently Canada’s IIHF leading scorer.

Clark Drake coached the University of Alberta men’s team for twenty-eight years and took the Golden Bears to six University Cups.

Jeremy Jacobs has been the owner of the Boston Bruins since 1975 and has been a very influential owner and has served as the Chairman for the Board of Governors since 2007.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate this year’s Hall of Fame inductees.

With the 2017 Class selected, it won’t take us long for us to work on the 2018 List. 

Look for that soon!
In a ceremony prior to their home field loss against the Oakland A’s, the Chicago White Sox retired the number 56 of Mark Buehrle.

The lefthander made his debut in 2000 for Chicago where he would send the next twelve seasons of his career.  With the Chi-Sox, Buehrle would go to four All Star Games and would win 161 Games and fan 1,396 batters.  He would help Chicago win the 2005 World Series. 

Buehrle becomes the 11th White Sox player in team history to have his number retired joining Nellie Fox (#2), Harold Baines (#3), Luke Appling (#4), Minnie Minoso (#9), Luis Aparicio (#11), Paul Konerko (#14), Ted Lyons (#16), Billy Pierce (#19), Thomas (#35) and Carlton Fisk (#72).

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate Mark Buehrle for achieving this honor. 
The Winnipeg Blue Bombers has announced that one former player and two builders will comprise their Hall of Fame Class of 2017.

Wide Receiver, Terrence Edwards will be the lone player entering the Bombers Hall.  A former Georgia Bulldog, Edwards only had one reception in the NFL (with the Atlanta Falcons) and sought his football dreams north of the border with the Toronto Argonauts.  He wasn’t there long, and was released and picked up by the Montreal Alouettes where he stayed for two years but it was when he signed with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers prior to the 2007 season that he would find his game.

As a member of the Blue Bombers from 2007 to 2013, Edwards accumulated 469 Receptions and 7,200 Receiving Yards and was named a CFL All Star twice. 

Former board members David Asper and Gene Dunn were also chosen.

We here at Notinhalloffame.com would like to congratulate the new members of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers Hall of Fame.
While we are not sure if any petition from Change.org has ever worked, it is of interest to us that there is one to try and remove a member of the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame.

The non-profit Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation has started a petition to remove Dennis Rodman from the Hall following his praise and defense of North Korean dictator Kim Jong-un, who now has American blood on his hands”.  This is in reference to Otto Warmbier, who was held captive by North Korea for seventeen months and was returned in a coma.  He died on Monday.

To date, Rodman has made five visits to the isolated nation and has cited Kim Jong-un as a friend.  The group seeking Rodman’s removal from the Hall is citing the Halls rule that “a candidate may be removed if he or she has damaged the game of basketball.”

While Rodman has always been known to be a little eccentric it is unlikely that this action will result in his expulsion from Springfield.
