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.

Bobby Bauer http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1996-hockey-inductees/5884-bobby-bauer http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1996-hockey-inductees/5884-bobby-bauer Bobby Bauer
Despite his relatively short NHL career, we like the Veteran’s Committee induction of Bobby Bauer.  He only had seven complete seasons in the National Hockey League, but his prime was taken away from his as he participated in World War II.  He spent his professional career with the Boston Bruins, and was a member of the famed “Kraut Line” with Woody Dumart & Milt Schmidt (both of them Hall of Fame inductees) and was part of two Stanley Cups for the Bruins in 1939.  Four times, (and again remember out of seven seasons) Bauer was named the Second Team All Star at Right Wing, and three times his class was shown as the Lady Byng Trophy winner.  This is one Veteran’s Category inductee that we approve of completely.

Borje Salming http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1996-hockey-inductees/5885-borje-salming http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1996-hockey-inductees/5885-borje-salming Borje Salming
Borje Salming not only was the first Swedish player to enter the Hockey Hall of Fame, but was the man who paved the way for Swedish players to enter the National Hockey League and prove that the Scandinavian nation belonged on the world stage.   Salming would join the Toronto Maple Leafs in 1973 and he immediately made an impact on their blue line.  The Swedish Defenceman would be named to six post season All Star teams, but most importantly he shattered the myth that players from Sweden could be tough enough to hang in the elite professional league.  Every player in Sweden who looks across the Atlantic Ocean with dreams of the National Hockey League owes a debt to Borje Salming.
