George Armstrong
With all due respect to George Armstrong, the Hockey Hall of Fame may not be the right place for him. It was not that Armstrong wasn’t a good player; he was a multi time All Star game participant who spend his long career as a member of the Toronto Maple Leafs who won four Stanley Cups. Although he played in multiple All Star Games, the Right Winger never had more than 25 goals or 55 points in a season and was never considered by his peers to be an elite player. George Armstrong was however considered a great leader and was the Leafs Captain for many years and was also considered a very intelligent player who knew how to make the best of his ability, and had some of his performances in the playoffs. Frankly, we are on the fence on this one.
