Rod BrindAmour
An intense workout machine whose gym work likely granted him twenty NHL seasons, Rod Brind’Amour was not just a physical anomaly, but one hell of a hockey player.


Although Brind’Amour showcased offensive prowess (1,184 career points) it was his defensive skills that opponents feared. As one of the top shut down centers in hockey, Brind’Amour twice won the Selke Trophy for the league’s best Defensive Forward.

Although his career numbers are solid, Brind’ Amour lacks the signature season that the Hall looks for, although his accomplishments are certainly worth celebrating somewhere.

  • 204. The Troggs
    Sometimes a song is so powerful it can completely alter the Rock landscape. Some have called the Troggs cover, Wild Thing one of those songs. Some of as at NIHOF agreed if the Troggs got into the Hall based on the strength of that song, we admit that we would have a hard time disputing their logic.   Of course,…
