NHL HOF 2012 Inductees: Mats Sundin, Joe Sakic, Adam Oates and Pavel Bure
The Hockey Hall of Fame Induction ceremony went off swimmingly, except for the time maybe when Mats Sundin pronounced Elmer Lach’s name “Latch,” and Patrick Roy took a swipe at the Canadiens, saying they decided to trade him, which only sort of happened after Roy told Ronald Corey he’d never play another game with the team. Maybe he’s upset he wasn’t hired as coach or GM.
The speeches went smoothly, although Bill Hay’s seemed long and drawn out, but I thought Pavel Bure’s was excellent, as were the others..
And to cap off a fine night, Gary Bettman looked tired, hollow, concerned, pale, and not a happy camper whatsoever, and the women looked lovely.

The Hockey Hall of Fame inducted four more players today, including two former Canucks, Pavel Bure and Mats Sundin. Bure, Sundin and the other two inductees, Sakic and Oates are all full marks for their induction, but does anyone else find it odd that the Hall of Fame ignores the most important position in hockey, the goaltender?
Unless you’re the among the elite of the elite,...

On Monday Adam Oates capped a wonderful career by being inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame in Toronto.
During his acceptance speech Oates continued to do exactly what he did best during his career: flip the glory unto others. Just like a perfect pass for yet another assist, Oates spent much of his speech thanking teammates, singling out Cam Neely and Ray Borque from his time in...
Great to see Joe Sakic, Pavel Bure, Mats Sundin and Adam Oates get into the Hockey Hall of Fame. My appearance Friday on XM's The War Room focused on hall of famers - who should be there that isn't, who is there that shouldn't be, etc. These are the great bar stool debates that take place city to city across North America. Some of my favourite conversations with friends...

It was a reminder of...
The only bright spot this fall in relation to hockey was the induction of four new Hall of Fame members. I had the privilege to grow up watching these great players play the game I love to play and watch. Adam Oates, Mats Sundin, Pavel Bure and Joe Sakic are the NHL Hall of Fame…
from Adrian Dater of the Denver Post,
In Monday's Denver Post, we have a story that polled 10 of the most experienced hockey writers in North America to name the top 10 centers in NHL history.
Joe Sakic came in eighth, just behind Bryan Trottier and just ahead of Stan Mikita. Steve Yzerman, the former Detroit Red Wings Hall of Famer, came in sixth.
Do we have a...
