There may be more than 40. And I had a major crush on Rheaume.I was asking myself that very same question. So, to bring it back, I'm not liking the finalists this year, too much. Chris mullin and Dennis Rodman are the only players I can really get behind, and neither is a slam dunk.

Obviously when Wickenheiser retires she'll get in but that's still a good 6 or 7 years away. I think there are about 40 male players elligible now who should make it ahead of Rheaume. Heck, I'd put Peter Forsberg in ahead of Rheaume and you know how much I don't like that guy.One question, why are we having a hockey discussion in a basketball forum?
No problem, at all. Of all the sports HOFs, this is the one that is the most puzzling, although the Hockey HOF is getting there now that they're inducting female players. I don't have anything against female hockey players, but it seems like they're really becoming an all-encompassing body.

With all due respect, and despite some on point opinion differences I have nothing but respect, stuff like this has to go beyond one single person's personal biases.

And I don't think you're too far off from the normal sports fan, let alone someone who follows and knows their hockey such as yourself. I have a vague idea whhere to begin, with players like Cammi Granato and Manon Rheaume, but to rank women's hockey players woould almost be akin to rating women's boxers. The biggest argument is, plain and simple, the history is not there. Nor is the stage. There is the Olympics and that's about it for anything even close to resonating.I am not one to dissuade from a Machiavellian task. Rheaume is the only female player with even a case to be added to the list. And only because of her fame, not because of her skills.
