15. J.C. Tremblay

A converted winger, J.C. Tremblay made the transition to defense look easy. As a converted forward, Tremblay understood the offensive aspects of the game and was a natural playmaker from the blue line. Tremblay’s last two years with the Habs saw him reach his best points totals, but it could be argued that his best years were out of the NHL. Tremblay joined the WHA’s Quebec Nordiques and was easily among the best defenders in the league. His WHA output was good and had he chose to stay in the NHL it could be debated that he might have had a potential induction by now.

One of the great idiotic crimes of the NHL's dumb HoF. Even Gordie Howe was surprised JCT was not in the Hall. One of the best defensive defenseman there ever was. He was a star in the WHA and one of the best, if not the best, player against the USSR in 1974. And a GREAT human too, gave a kidney to his daughter.

I think some they're should some consideratio n given to star NHL players who went to the WHA and excelled there. Tremblay was a late bloomer and if he stayed in Montreal he would be in the Hall of Fame--withou t question
