Recently, we here at Notinhalloffame.com unveiled our new (2016) list for our hockey section, naming Eric Lindros as the man most worthy of consideration for the Hockey Hall of Fame.
This came with an updated list, a few new entries (Alex Kovalev, Roman Hamrlik and Miroslav Satan) and a shuffling of positions based on your votes, emails and comments.
Now once we do the repositioning on the main section, we fee it is our duty to address and upload potential entries that will come up in coming years, and allow you to vote ahead of time, BEFORE it gets on to the list without receiving your input.
With that in mind, lets take a look at part 1 of 2 of our revised hockey futures shall we?
First off, the 2015 and 2016 Futures have been removed completely. Those players who were in the sections previously but were not able to make the Top 100 (as they are all now eligible) are no longer featured on Notinhalloffame.com, that is unless we expand to 250, which we have discussed!
The 2017 Futures Section includes the following:
Daniel Alfredsson, a former superstar for the Ottawa Senators and Calder Trophy winner. The Swedish born player retired with over 1,100 career Points and a 0.93 Points per Game Average.
Ed Jovanovski, an excellent two-way defenceman and five time All Star.
Jean Sebastien Giguere, the Conn Smythe Trophy winner with the Anaheim Ducks.
Nikolai Khabibulin, a four time All Star and durable Goalie who was a part of the Tampa Bay Lightning’s 2004 Stanley Cup win.
Ray Whitney, a 1,000 Point scorer, a one time Second Team NHL All Star and a member of the Carolina Hurricanes’ first Stanley Cup Championship.
Ryan Smyth, a star player for the Edmonton Oilers who led the NHL in Power Play Goals in the 1996-97 season.
Teemu Selanne, the “Finnish Flash”, is a three time NHL goal scoring champion and four time post season NHL All Star. Selanne is also a Bill Masterton Trophy winner and Stanley Cup Winner with the Anaheim Ducks.
Tim Thomas, a Goalie who was a First Team All Star twice and Conn Smythe Trophy winner with the Boston Bruins in 2011.
Todd Bertuzzi, a controversial player who was at one time, a First Team All Star in 2003.
Tomas Kaberle, a four time All Star and classy blueliner who recorded over 500 Points in the NHL.
