One of the top Left Wingers of the 1980’s, Michel Goulet brought excitement and hope to the hockey fans of Quebec City.  It was not inaccurate to paint Goulet as a natural sniper, as for seven consecutive seasons he was able to net 40 goals and is a member of the elite group that has over 500 for his career.  Goulet was capable on the defensive end, as he showed primarily in his veteran years late in his career with Chicago, but fans of the Left Winger will always remember how he was a star with Quebec putting the puck in the net on a regular basis.

Monsignor Athol Murray http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1998-hockey-inductees/5890-monsignor-athol-murray http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1998-hockey-inductees/5890-monsignor-athol-murray Monsignor Athol Murray
Why do feel wrong questioning the credentials of a Monsignor for the Hockey Hall of Fame?  It is not that Monsignor Athol Murray did not do a lot for sports in Saskatchewan as he did for the young boys in Saskatchewan when he went there.  He developed many athletic programs, including that of Hockey in the Notre Dame College in the province.  As such, many eventual NHL players would be developed from his initial work, but it was not like he was there just focusing on hockey, nor was he the man who trained many of those future stars.  Frankly, this just feels more like a feel good story, than a legitimate induction.

Peter Stastny http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1998-hockey-inductees/5891-peter-stastny http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1998-hockey-inductees/5891-peter-stastny Peter Stastny
When the Stastny brothers defected from Czechoslovakia to play in the National Hockey League it became one of the most important moments in the sport.  He (along with his brothers, Anton and Marian) would take over the city of Quebec City and light up the stat sheet.  Peter Stastny would hit the 100 point mark seven times and become one of the top stars in the league.

Roy Conacher http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1998-hockey-inductees/5892-roy-conacher http://www.notinhalloffame.com/hockey/current-hockey-hall-of-fame-inductees/1990s-inductees/1998-hockey-inductees/5892-roy-conacher Roy Conacher
The final entrant in the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Veteran’s Category, Roy Conacher won the Art Ross Trophy in 1949.  Conacher was seemingly born to score, as he led the NHL in goals in his rookie year, and would finish second four other times.  He was part of two Stanley Cup wins in Boston and like so many others, had his prime taken away by the second World War.  It is likely that the delay to Conacher’s delayer to the Hall of Fame, may have been due to a perceived one dimensional nature as he was never known for his defensive skills, nor his overall playmaking efforts.  Still, anyone who finishes in the top two in goals in five different seasons cannot seem out of place in the Hall of Fame.
