1999-2001 Hockey HOF Inductees are up

Over the last few months, we here at 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 have expended greatly to allow you to vote on Hockey Hall of Fame inductees from 1999-2001.

The Players/Builders from that existing time frame include:

The 1999 Hockey Hall of Fame Class:

Scott Morrison, the former President and the CEO of the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Wayne Gretzky, “The Great One” who is considered to be the finest hockey player of all time.

The 2000 Hockey Hall of Fame Class:

Denis Savard, a long time Chicago Blackhawk and seven time All Star who would win a Stanley Cup with Montreal.

Joe Mullen, a three time Stanley Cup Champion, two time Lady Byng Trophy recipient and former First Team All NHL Team.

Walter Bush, who helped bring the NHL to Minnesota, women’s hockey to the Olympics and was the president of U.S. Hockey for nearly twenty years.

The 2001 Hockey Hall of Fame Class:

Craig Patrick, a decent player in his own right but was known for his administrative prowess with the Pittsburgh Penguins earning two Stanley Cup Rings.

Dale Hawerchuk, a former Calder Trophy winner and five time All Star with the original Winnipeg Jets.

Mike Gartner, a durable forward and seven time NHL All Star. 

Viachevslev Fetisov, a three time Stanley Cup winner with the Detroit Red Wings and a two Time Gold Medalist with the Soviet Union.

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!

Mike Gartner

Mike Gartner is not be the most decorated player, as he holds the distinction of being the only player to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame in his first year of eligibility without ever playing in a Stanley Cup Final, won a post season award or being named to an All Star team. That statement aside, Mike Gartner’s Hall of Fame induction is based on his longevity and consistency over his near twenty years of pro hockey. He would hit the 40 goal mark nine times and would finish with 708 in total. He was known for his speed on the ice and his accuracy with the puck. Gartner’s misfortune of being on a lot of bad teams (mostly in Washington) allowed him to suit up for Canada often in the World Championship, where he excelled. Often, the Hockey Hall of Fame is criticized for allowing a lot of players who may have been stat accumulators, but Gartner did pile up a lot of them!
