Last year. four of our top ten candidates were named to the Hockey Hall of Fame. Coincidently, we have four first year candidates who have taken there place; including our new number one: Joe Sakic.
We have a lot of reason to think that Sakic will get in on his first year. In the bost basic terms, he has the career numbers, strong individual seasons and championships both Internationally and profesionally. The career Nordique/Avalanche forward is joined other first time candidates, Brendan Shanahan (#5), Mats Sundin (#6) and Jeremy Roenick (#7) who may not be first ballot Hall of Famers; but have a strong case for enshrinement.
Curtis Joseph (#25), Gary Roberts (#54) and Teppo Numminen (#93) are also first year additions to the list.
If you are into hockey, give it a look and cast a vote for these new entries!
