Red Dutton
Okay….we are a little befuddled by this one. Red Dutton was certainly a good player (to us, anyone who makes the National Hockey League regardless of the era is a decent hockey player) but was he a Hall of Famer? At no point did Dutton ever win a championship or lead the league in any category other than Penalty Minutes. Nor was Dutton a part of Championship team and nor did he eclipse the 100 point total in his entire career.

So why was he a Hockey Hall of Famer? Frankly, we don’t know. He did become the acting president of the NHL but his tenure was not exactly one met with celebration. Frankly, this is the first inductee to the Hockey Hall of Fame that we will openly question.

Should Red Dutton be in the Hall of Fame?
