Al Arbour
Al Arbour had a respectable career in the National Hockey League playing in over 600 games and winning three Stanley Cups.  However, it was as a Head Coach that he entered the Hall of Fame.  As soon as Arbour retired as a player with the St. Louis Blues, he was inserted as their Head Coach, but it was in Long Island where he found his chance to shine.  Arbour took over the second year New York Islanders and he brought them to respectability and later four consecutive Stanley Cups.  As always, as any Head Coach of a dynasty can punch their ticket to the Hall of Fame.  Al Arbour was no exception.
