    Early picks for the Hall of Fame Class of 2019

    There is one mortal lock for the Hockey Hall of Fame Class of 2019. It's a player who never won the Stanley Cup. Heck, it's a player who never spent a minute in the NHL.

    It's Hayley Wickenheiser, the Canadian women's hockey icon who is in her first year of eligibility. She has four Olympic gold medals, with 18 goals in 26 games, and seven golds at IIHF world championships. A star in every sense of the word, and an absolute legend.
    Near lock: Daniel Alfredsson, right wing (third year of eligibility)

    Given the lack of sure things among the (male) first-year candidates for the Hall of Fame, one assumes it's going to be Alfie's turn. The long-serving captain of the Ottawa Senators (with a career-capping stop with the Detroit Red Wings) had 444 goals (No. 62 all time) and 1,157 points (No. 51 all time). He won the Calder Trophy, although no other individual hardware, and won Olympic gold and silver for Sweden. It was a surprise when he didn't make it in this season; perhaps the executive committee wanted to save him for 2019, when he could be catnip to Ottawa fans looking to spend induction weekend celebrating the franchise's most popular player and one of the game's greatest ambassadors during his playing days.

    If he doesn't get in for the Class of 2019, one wonders if he's destined for the Hall of Very Good But Not Great.

    5-1: Defensemen Sergei Gonchar (second year), Kevin Lowe (18th year), Doug Wilson (23rd year), Sergei Zubov (seventh year)

    maybe this is the year Doug Wilson finally gets in. If Sergei Gonchar gets in before Doug Wilson. We Riot.
