here's who passed -- and who fell short

The Hockey Hall of Fame welcomes its latest class on Monday, and with that induction comes the usual hand-wringing and debate over the worthiness of the honorees. Did Paul Kariya play enough games? Did Dave Andreychuk play too many games? Was Mark Recchi's medical degree the tipping point for him?
The problem is that the Hockey Arian Foster Jersey Hall of Fame is not restricted to the best of the best, the true immortals, the players whose legacies are whispered in hushed tones among puckheads. It's too often the "Hall of Very Good," or worse, the "Hall of Guys Whom the Selection Committee Generally Likes as People and Hence Will Do Them a Solid."
It doesn't have to be this way. There's a simple four-quadrant test one can apply to prospective Hall of Fame candidates to see if they have the stuff of legends, and here it is:
What else could you possibly say about a 6-foot-9 man-mountain who is considered a once-in-a-lifetime combination of size, prowess and accomplishment? He has one Norris Trophy but was a six-time finalist to go along with his Stanley Cup with the Bruins. Chara could have been a sideshow; instead, he's an immortal.
There was definitely a time when we were all worried … nes-Jersey that Sid's career might get cut short because of health concerns, but then he won a Hart, two Stanley Cups and two Conn Smythes in the span of three years -- and they're already etching his plaque, probably. The greatest player of his generation, full stop.
Datsyuk's an interesting one. Currently playing out the string in the KHL, he never hit 1,000 points in the NHL, finishing with 918 but with a 0.96 points-per-game average, which led the Detroit Red Wings from 1999 to now. As a defensive player, he's a standard-bearer: He has three consecutive Selke Trophy wins and is a six-time finalist. Quadrant 1 is a concern, but he's a four-quad guy in my book, and in the books of the countless players he influenced.
Kane, 28, is currently third all time in points per game (1.02) for American players. His career stats project to be in line with Hall of Famers like Jari Kurri and Bryan Trottier. He has regular-season and playoff MVP trophies to his credit, averaged Arian Foster Jersey a point per playoff game during their dynastic run to three Stanley Cups from 2010 to '15, and is the face of the franchise (for whatever that's worth).
Since 2005, no defenseman comes close to Karlsson's 0.83 points per game, which places him No. 32 among all scorers with at least 500 games played. It places him No. 8 among defensemen, between Hall of Famers Brian Leetch (0.85) and Phil Housley (0.81). He has two Norris Trophies, has won silver in the Olympics and World Juniors and has rewritten the rules for offensive defensemen. Oh, and he's 27.
We assume he's already an inductee in the Handsome Man Hall of Fame. As for hockey, he has the stats (ninth in career wins, seventh in career save percentage), a Vezina Trophy (and finished in the top six in voting 10 times), and he backstopped the Swedes to Olympic gold and silver. Undeniably one of the best of all time. His beard, we mean.
There are a few holes in this résumé, namely a Stanley Cup and a Vezina, but he was in the http://www.losangeleskingsofficialonlin … ing-Jersey crease when Canada won Olympic gold in 2010. He's fourth in NHL career wins (454), ninth in save percentage (.919) and has finished among the Vezina top four five times. And he's third behind Lundqvist (378) and Ryan Miller (327) in quality starts (321) since 1999, despite playing for some atrocious teams. … id=4459#p1 … referendum
