5. Mark Howe

When you are the son of Gordie Howe it can be expected that you are just “Gordie’s son”, but this was not the case for Mark Howe, a Hockey Hall of Famer in his own right and one hell of a blueliner.

2011-12 Hockey Hall of Fame inductees are now up

Over the last few months, we here at Notinhalloffame.com have been so focused on other endeavors at the site, that we neglected to tell you about the continuing opportunity fro you to cast your opinion on existing Hockey Hall of Famers.

With that in mind, we here at Notinhhalloffame.com have expended greatly to allow you to vote on Hockey Hall of Fame inductees from 2010-2012.

The Players/Builders from that existing time frame include:


The 2011 Hockey Hall of Fame Class:


Doug Gilmour, a two time All Star and winner of the Frank J. Selke Trophy.

Ed Belfour, a two rime Vezina Trophy Winner and five time All Star.

Joe Nieuwendyk, who won three Stanley Cups and three different teams and was a four time All Star. 

Mark Howe, a four time NHL All Star and two time WHA Champion.


The 2012 Hockey Hall of Fame Class:


Adam Oates, a five time NHL All Star and gifted playmaker.

Joe Sakic, a former Hart Trophy Winner and two time Stanley Cup Champion with the Colorado Avalanche.

Mats Sundin, a long time Toronto Maple Leaf and Swedish National Star and eight time All Star.

Pavel Bure, a Russian star and three time NHL leader in goals in the National Hockey League.


I think you know what we are looking for you to do!

When your time permits, take a look at this group and let us know if their Hall of Fame inductions are justified!



Our Top 50 All-Time Philadelphia Flyers are now up

Yes, we know that this is taking a while!

As many of you know, we here at Notinhalloffame.com are slowly generating the 50 of each major North American sports team.  We have a new one to unveil today, that of the Philadelphia Flyers who have won their conference eight times and would win the Stanley Cup twice. Those wins took place in the second in 1974 and 1975, making them the first expansion team to win it all.

As for all of our top 50 players in hockey we look at the following: 

  1. Advanced Statistics.
  1. Traditional statistics and how they finished in the NHL.
  1. Playoff accomplishments.
  1. Their overall impact on the team and other intangibles not reflected in a stat sheet.

Remember, this is ONLY based on what a player does on that particular team and not what he accomplished elsewhere and also note that we have placed an increased importance on the first two categories.

This list is updated up until the end of the 2018-19 Season.

The complete list can be found herebut as always we announce our top five in this article.  They are:

  1. Bobby Clarke
  1. Bernie Parent
  1. Bill Barber
  1. Eric Lindros
  1. Mark Howe

We will continue our adjustments on our existing lists and will continue developing our new lists.  Look for the Top 50 Atlanta Braves next.

As always we thank you for your support.

Mark Howe

A top forward in the WHA, Mark Howe (along with his father, Gordie) took the Houston Aeros to a pair of Avco Cup wins in the 1970’s. As he moved to New England, and later joined the NHL with the Whalers, Mark Howe emerged as one of the game’s top defenseman, who was a power play anchor and gifted two way player. It took him a lot longer to get into the Hockey Hall of Fame, as he was not only in his father’s shadow, but his WHA accomplishments were seemingly overlooked by the Hall. Thankfully, he took his rightful place alongside Gordie in 2011.
