Jaromir Jagr
Easily the most talented player in the history of Europe, Jaromir Jagr continues to add to his list of his accomplishments. Once he is eligible for the Hall of Fame, there should be NO reason to keep him out in his first year of eligibility. He won the Hart Trophy, The Art Ross five times, the Stanley Cup twice, the Olympic Gold and the Ted Lindsay Award three times; and that is just the tip of the iceberg. Jagr’s career totals are also very high (8th in points as of this writing) and had he not spent four years in the Russian leagues, his tallies would be higher. If there is a reason to keep him out of Toronto, we can’t think of one.

    77. Austin Carr
    One of the great shooters of all time, Austin Carr’s college run overshadows a very good pro career that was lost in the obscurity of playing in Cleveland.  However, shouldn’t the all time NCAA tournament scoring average leader be considered?  He scored sixty-one once in an NCAA tourney game, showcasing his legendary shooting.  Considering all the nonsense the Cavs have…
