    I feel like a reason should be a bit more valid than "I couldn't be bothered to research what contribution they made to the game"

    Oliver Seibert C Seibert's biography describes him as a Berlin (now Kitchener) Ontario local legend, who along with other family members created a team. He was said to be a fast and agile skater and was one of the first professional hockey players in The International Pro Hockey League. There is very little statistical information regarding his on ice performance, so all we have to go on is his reputation which resulted in HOF induction in 1951.

    That's a pretty big, unfounded assumption. I did research his career both on and off the ice. The intent of this thread is create a SCF HOF Team, not to write player biographies. So, with all due respect, my choice was based on Drinkwater's short career and rather unimpressive stats as a player.

    Let's get back to non-HOFers in the HOF I'm more familiar with. Today's cut: Joe Nieuwendyk

    Aside from having his name mispelt on an (in)famous Pro Set card back in 90-91, his career was what I'd call "really good". The HHOF's (often) mediocre standards deem that he's a HOFer - but if we're whittling this down to one "HOF Team" no way he makes the cut.

    Career highlights include:

    - A Calder Trophy, joining elite names like Andrew Raycroft, Scott Gomez, and Steve Vickers
    - A Conn Smythe Trophy, despite not leading his team in points (Modano did) or the league (Forsberg did)
    - He won three Stanley Cups, which is half as many as Kevin Lowe, who is not in the HOF
    - Averaged less than 1 point per game in the regular season, despite playing through some of the NHLs highest scoring seasons
    - Was traded to Dallas in what can only be described as a fleecing by Calgary, for Jarome Iginla

    Bill Quackenbush D Known as a gifted skater and passer who could move the puck up the ice, but only managed 62 goals in a 14 year career. He averaged an assist every 3.5 games, nothing extraordinary. Not to detract from his career, but I do not consider him to be in the upper echelon of HOF defenders.

    Remarkably he played an entire season without drawing a penalty.

    We need a guy like that on my Rec league hockey team...

    Today'll I'll axe Woody Dumart.

    772 Games played, with only 211 goals & 429 points. No way he's making the final cut.

    while I agree with everything else mentioned, I have to disagree the down playing of his calder. Second ever rookie to score 50 goals, joining elite names like Mike Bossy.

    Alexander Yakushev LW Spent his entire career playing for Soviet teams, statistical information is very limited. I'm knocking him out due to my belief that USSR national teams from that era were basically professional athletes matched against amateurs.

    Marty Barry.

    I can't figure out why he's in there, other than "we have have to put someone in... and we're looking for guys that were half decent.

    He won a couple of cups, and was an allstar once.... even won a Lady Byng. That's makes him the yester-year equivalent of Brian Campbell, but a forward. His point totals don't look that impressive to me either. Bye Marty!
