The second of two Veteran’s Category inductees in the 1994 Class, Harry Watson entered the Hall with a decent resume as a five time Stanley Cup champion and a seven time All-Star game participant. Watson was a decent scorer and rarely made mistakes, but his overall performance was usually as a complementary player and not necessarily as the top star. Granted, he did play in many All-Star games, but back then it was the Champions (of which he was on five) against the best players from the rest of the NHL. It is not a travesty to have Harry Watson in the Hockey Hall of Fame, but if he was omitted it is not exactly a huge snub.
