First up, the most deserving member. Steve Yzerman.
Three Stanley Cups as a player, one as an executive. An Olympic Gold Medal with Canada, Conn Smythe award winner, 9 time All Star, and hockey's 6th all time leading scorer.
Next, Luc Robitaille.
Calder Trophy winner, 8 time All Star, a Stanley Cup, and retires as the highest scoring Left Winger in hockey history.
Two Stanley Cups, 8 time All Star, Hart Trophy winner, and the third best goal-scorer of all time. The Golden Brett, son of Bobby, nephew of Dennis. Guess it is in the blood.
Calder, Norris, and Conn Smythe trophy winner, 8 time All Star, a Stanley Cup, along with an Olympic silver medal for Team USA. One of the top three best defencemen not born in Canada.
and finally, Lou Lamoriello.
Lou is the CEO, President, and General Manager of the New Jersey Devils. And has been since 1987. Lou is also very involved in giving back to college hockey in the U.S., as well as being involved in the U.S Olympic team.
There you have it. Certainly a lot more deserving class than last year.
