If longevity and consistency is the key to the Hockey Hall of Fame, then sign up Dave Andreychuk to the Hall right now. Andreychuk is among career leaders in Games Played and Points Scored and in terms of scoring proficiency for a left winger, he has few peers. He excelled at the Power Play, where he maintains the career record for the most Power Play Goals of all time. The culmination of Andreychuk’s career was at the age of 40 he became the oldest player to ever make his Stanley Cup debut. Fortunately for him, he achieved the dream of any one who ever laced up the skates when he led the Tampa Bay Lightning to a Stanley Cup win.
If there is a knock against Andreychuk it could be that he never scored 100 points per season (although he did get 99 twice) and was only an All Star twice is in his extensive career. Dave Andreychuk may have never dominated any season, but when you have a career as extensive and fruitful as his was, it is a fairly small criticism.
