Mark Recchi
A twenty two year veteran of the National Hockey League, Mark Recchi was one of the more productive players of the 1990’s, hitting the three digit figure in points three times. The gifted playmaker was also a three time Stanley Cup Champion, winning each ring with three different squads. As he is among the top twenty in every major offensive category in his career, it is difficult to imagine that he will be ignored by the Hall of Fame, but with all due respect to Mark Recchi, he does not exactly scream first ballot Hall of Fame entry. This one should be interesting.

Shocked he didn't get in this year. The voting committee only selected 3 of a possible 4 players. I won't dare predict he'll get in next year, though he might.

Recchi should have been a first ballot hands down. Has all the individual stats, has three Cups. Post season all star berth! What more is the Hall looking for?could you

I think he's in this time next year provided the voting committee doesn't decide to vote in another woman or a Soviet player.

2015 class, IMO
Lidstrom
Pronger (eligible based on what I've read)
Fedorov
Recchi

If he for some reason Recchi doesn't get in 2015, he'll be a lock for 2016 along with Lindros since no one of note retired following the 2012-13 season.
