Newsworthy – 2011 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductions

14 Nov

1992-93 O-Pee-Chee - Ed Belfour

1994-95 Parkhurst Vintage - Doug Gilmour

1990-91 Pro Set - Mark Howe

1992-93 Upper Deck - Joe Nieuwendyk

Congratulations to Ed Belfour, Doug Gilmour, Mark Howe, and Joe Nieuwendyk on their induction to the Hockey Hall of Fame tonight.  Rumour has it Belfour was even wearing a tie, which he didn’t do at the Hall of Fame Game in Toronto on Saturday, a move that I respect the hell out of.

Now, quick, one-line memories of each of these four guys:

Mark Howe – Once wore his entire name on the back of his jersey when he played with these two guys, and also wore Cooperalls in the National Hockey League.

Ed Belfour – was “washed up” when he came to Toronto in Curtis Joseph’s shadow and then just absolutely ran the show – and some would say the city – for the Leafs for two years.

Joe Niewendyk – Game Seven, Patrick Lalime.  That is all.

Doug Gilmour – I simply cannot say it as well as this YouTube video which I have forced upon you at least once in a previous post, will surely again sometime.  Enjoy.

Congrats especially to 93.
