Yeah sure let’s put everyone that’s made an all star team a couple times in the HOF.

Not sure that is really a debate.
The nose is a lock for the HOF.

Love that he got a rat-trick against the habs. Couldn't happen to a better team.

HOF? By todays standards its more like the Hall of Really Good. If he can continue to keep up the production like he has then yes I think he has shot.

Kane to the oilers is not close despite some reports. Nhl sent a letter to all teams saying pending the investigation into Kane he could face additional penalties and face a hearing with the commissioner. He was suspended 21 games for violating Covid protocol once already so he would be a repeat offender and likely face a hefty suspension. He could also be facing criminal prosecution for violating the quarantine act in both countries if he falsified his entry applications.

RE: EVANDER KANE

As you know, over this past weekend, the San Jose Sharks exercised the Club’s right to terminate its Standard Player’s Contract (the “SPC”) with Evander Kane due to various purported material breaches of the Player’s obligations under his SPC. As a result of the termination, the Player became an Unrestricted Free Agent, effective Sunday afternoon. The Players’ Association has notified the League and Club both that it is grieving the contract termination, and of its intention to pursue an expedited grievance seeking an appropriate remedy.
Please be aware that while the League does not intend to pursue or independently take action with respect to the specific contractual breaches that have been alleged by the Sharks in support of its contract termination, the League has initiated an independent investigation into the circumstances pursuant to which Mr. Kane travelled cross-border during the Holiday Period, and whether such travel was conducted in accordance with applicable law in both the U.S. and Canada. While we do not anticipate that this investigation should be lengthy in duration, the timing of its completion will in large part be a function of the level of cooperation we receive from Mr. Kane and his contract representative, as well as whether the facts may compel a disciplinary hearing before the Commissioner.
If you have any questions regarding this matter, or Mr. Kane’s status generally, please do not hesitate to contact us. Also, we request that you refrain from any public comment on the matter. Thank you.

#63, yes on the path to HOF career. Oilers on a slippery slope but makes sense because they are not moving in right direction.Kane on a prove it contract may be worth it short term.

I think they just shut down the KHL due to Rona.

Isn’t it the Hockey Hall of Fame and not the NHL Hall of Fame?

Given the accomplishments I think consideration is needed. His history as a cheap shot artist and dirty player may work against him though.

Some reports the oilers have signed Kane pro rated but won’t be registered until the league decides Kanes fate…

If true Holland just took the award as the stupidest Gm in NHL history. He may not even get to play this year.

The thought of Brad Marchand in the HOF makes me throw up a little in my mouth.

He leads the league in slewfoots, blind head shots and licking.

Yeah......hard pass from me.

Marchand well on his way to HOF. Guy is a pure winner who will do what it takes to win and that includes intimidating people. He certainly crosses the line at times but I would love to have a guy like that on my team.

Marchand is not a HOF’er. It’s the Hall of Fame not the Hall of Very Good. All HOF’s are trash. It’s a popularity contest.
