6 Cups

Pretty weak class for the 2019 Hockey Hall of Fame:

Hayley Wickenheiser - totally deserving
Guy Carbonneau - 663 points in 1318 games. We're talking about a player with a career high of 57 points. Maybe Ryan Smyth can be a Hall of Fame guy some day. Yes, he was known as a great checker, but those stats are mediocre. I would never have even added his name to the ballot.
Sergei Zubov - 771 points in 1068 games. Stanley Cup winner. He's...okay. His stats put him on the same level as a Rob Blake or Mark Howe, although those aren't overly convincing inductees for the cream of the crop of the game...none of them are superstars.
Vaclav Nedomansky - 278 points in 421 NHL games and a point per game in the WHA. To be fair, he's 33 by the time he reaches the NHL in 1977, so maybe past his prime and I don't have any idea what his stats were before he came to North America. I don't have enough info to comment on this.

Hopefully next year's class isn't so underwhelming.

Only reason Carbo was in there was because he was a Hab, his career high was 57 during a time when most guys were regularly scoring 80.
Zubov is worthy, a lot of points for a D-man, plus 2 Cups.
That last guy Vaclav Nedomansky makes a mockery of the whole institution, nobody has heard of him, had to look him up, was supposed to have been the first Easy Bloc guy to defect... does that get you in the HOF now .. its sure wasn't his play.. If that tool gets in where is Paul Henderson, the guy is a larger than life icon within the greatest hockey culture on the planet... the HOF has something against Paul should have been in long ago.

P. Chiarelli math.. T. Hall = A. Larsson, Yak= bag o'pucks, K. Russell = $4.1 M+NMC, G. Reinhart= M. Barzal + A. Beauvillier, J. Eberle = R. Spooner, Petrovic = Nathan Legare
