Glenn Anderson
A career point per game player in his lengthy NHL career, Glenn Anderson had the fortune of playing for some excellent Edmonton Oilers teams and won five Stanley Cups as a result. Anderson may not have been as heralded as Messier, Coffey, Kurri and Gretzky, but he was a solid contributor in his own right, topping the 100 point mark three times and finishing two goals shy of the 500 mark for his career. Anderson may have only been in the top ten in scoring once, but the goals he did score were often in clutch situations.

Anderson had to wait awhile before he was inducted, and as only the 5th or 6th best player for the Oilers dynasty, it was a little difficult to put him in immediately. Anderson’s stat accumulation did help him, but he was a very good and aggressive player, whose place in the Hockey Hall of Fame is not out of left field.
