Chris Pronger
As a past winner of the coveted Hart Trophy, Chris Pronger has to be considered on the inside track for the Hall of Fame. A VERY high percentage of these regular season MVPs have been selected to Toronto, and though Pronger was only in serious contention for that award once in his career, he has maintained a very good level of consistency in his career and was always considered amongst the better players in the game.

The talented blue liner excelled at both ends of the ice and has been a constant on four consecutive Canadian Olympic Teams. Pronger should make it to the Hall very quickly based on his resume, though with a loaded group eligible at the same time, is it possible that Pronger might be the odd man out?

He lead 3 teams in 5 years to the finals and won with Anahiem, something no one else has ever done. He won the hart and the Norris, multiple gold medals, 5 all star games even though he offensively never had been one of the best players on D. His overall game is what makes Chris Pronger one of the best ever. Definitely a first ballot hall of famer.

    So much of the music that made it big in the early 80’s seems so dated today. There is a constant wonder about the bands and hits that emerged from that decade that made us wonder just what the hell were we thinking? With the Violent Femmes, it might just be the opposite, as this could be the music that…
