The 2017 Hockey Futures are up

Recently, we here at Notinhalloffame.com unveiled our new (2016) list for our hockey section, naming Eric Lindros as the man most worthy of consideration for the Hockey Hall of Fame.

This came with an updated list, a few new entries (Alex Kovalev, Roman Hamrlik and Miroslav Satan) and a shuffling of positions based on your votes, emails and comments.

Now once we do the repositioning on the main section, we fee it is our duty to address and upload potential entries that will come up in coming years, and allow you to vote ahead of time, BEFORE it gets on to the list without receiving your input.

With that in mind, lets take a look at part 1 of 2 of our revised hockey futures shall we?

First off, the 2015 and 2016 Futures have been removed completely.  Those players who were in the sections previously but were not able to make the Top 100 (as they are all now eligible) are no longer featured on Notinhalloffame.com, that is unless we expand to 250, which we have discussed!

The 2017 Futures Section includes the following:

Daniel Alfredsson, a former superstar for the Ottawa Senators and Calder Trophy winner.  The Swedish born player retired with over 1,100 career Points and a 0.93 Points per Game Average. 

Ed Jovanovski, an excellent two-way defenceman and five time All Star.

Jean Sebastien Giguere, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner with the Anaheim Ducks.

Nikolai Khabibulin, a four time All Star and durable Goalie who was a part of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 2004 Stanley Cup win.

Ray Whitney, a 1,000 Point scorer, a one time Second Team NHL All Star and a member of the Carolina Hurricanes’ first Stanley Cup Championship.

Ryan Smyth, a star player for the Edmonton Oilers who led the NHL in Power Play Goals in the 1996-97 season.

Teemu Selanne, the “Finnish Flash”, is a three time NHL goal scoring champion and four time post season NHL All Star.  Selanne is also a Bill Masterton Trophy winner and Stanley Cup Winner with the Anaheim Ducks. 

Tim Thomas, a Goalie who was a First Team All Star twice and Conn Smythe Trophy winner with the Boston Bruins in 2011.

Todd Bertuzzi, a controversial player who was at one time, a First Team All Star in 2003.

Tomas Kaberle, a four time All Star and classy blueliner who recorded over 500 Points in the NHL.

Gang, you know what we want you to do!

Take a look, cast your votes and offer us your opinions!

As always, we here at Notinhalloffame.com look forward to your opinions and thank you for your support.







The Hockey List has been revised, Teemu Selanne now #1

Updating and expansion…

That is what we will be doing (sort of) with our hockey revisions.

As most of you know, the Hockey Hall of Fame recently inducted three players from our notinhalloffame.com hockey list, Eric Lindros, Sergei Makarov and Rogie Vachon.  Lindros was ranked #1 by us last year and Makarov had been in varying spots in our top six since our website’s inception seven years ago.

When this occurs, it is always time for us to re-evaluate our list and we do that by looking at the following:



1. Analyzing your votes and opinions and adjusting our rankings accordingly.

2. Inputting the new hockey players who will now be eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame in 2017.



We added several new players and rather than present the new “100”, we have 107 for your consideration as we did not take out those who did not make that round number.  Rather, our intention is to expand it to 150.  Look for that this winter.

Until then, let’s present the new Notinhalloffame.com Hockey List.

Teemu Selanne is now eligible for the Hockey Hall of Fame and the “Finnish Flash” takes over the top spot.  Selanne retired as a Point per Game player and famously scored 76 Goals in his rookie season.  He is also a four time post season All Star. 

Don Cherry has been on our list since the beginning either in the first, second or third spot.  The outspoken host of Coach’s Corner on Hockey Night in Canada has been ranked 2nd on our list the last two years.  He remains in that slot this year.

Paul Kariya, Mark Recchi, Theoren Fleury and Alexander Mogilny all moved up one spot to #3 though #6 respectively.  They are followed by Bernie Nicholls who moved up to spots to #7.

Daniel Alfredsson debuts at #8.  The “love him or hate him” Swedish forward should garner interesting votes and comments from all of you!

Jeremy Roenick (#9) and Dave Andreychuk (#10) round out the top ten.

There are two new additions to the top 60.  Five time All Star Defenceman, Ed Jovanovski, and Goalie, Nikolai Khabibulin debut at #46 and #51 respectively.

Ray Whitney, a member of the 1,000 Point club misses out on the top 60 making his first appearance at #61.  Former Stanley Cup Winning Goalie, Tim Thomas appears at #81.

We received emails and comments that we may have missed some players in previous lists.  Upon further review, we have agreed and three new former players who have been previously eligible but never ranked by us are now part of the list.

Those players are former 60 Goal scorer, Dennis Maruk (#70), 4 time All Star, Bill Guerin (#71) and 2 time All Star blueliner, Mathieu Schneider (#88).

You know what we want you to do!

Take a look at the new rankings and cast your vote and offer your opinions!

Thank you again from all of us at Notinhalloffame.com.

67. Ed Jovanovski

One of the better two way defensemen in Hockey, Ed Jovanovski is not the player that will put up monster point totals, but he will contribute and consistently shut down attackers. He is also one of those great teammates that does all the little things well and makes your team automatically better. In all likelihood when his career is over, Ed Jovanovski will likely not be considered for induction in Toronto, but he has a body of work that should make him closer to consideration than just his stats show.
