We here at Notinhalloffame.com have another major update that we are excited to present to all of you.

Recently, the Hockey Hall of Fame announced that Nicklas Lidstrom, Sergei Fedorov, Chris Pronger and Phil Housley would be the Class of 2015.  Once a Hall of Fame Class is announced, our next task is obvious….work on the next list!

We here at Notinhalloffame.com have created the new list and it is a little different than it has been in years past.  What we mean by that is that for the first time ever we do not have any new entry that placed in our top ten.  For that matter, we do not have any new entry that made the top twenty!

Let’s take a look at the new Notinhalloffame.com top ten and the new entries, shall we?

For the first time ever, former NHL Hart Trophy winner, Eric Lindros ascends to the top of the list.  Lindros rocketed from the #7 spot and in our opinion is in the best spot of his career to potentially make the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Don Cherry, the enigmatic coach of “Coach’s Corner” remains at number 2.  Cherry, a former Jack Adams Trophy winner might be the most known personality on the hockey list. 

Coming in at #3 is Sergei Makarov, a Soviet born player who was in the NHL at the tail end of his career.  Makarov moved up three spots from last year.

At #4 is Paul Kariya, a former Anaheim Duck who moved up from number six.  Kariya is a former seven time NHL All Star. 

The number #5 spot belongs to Mark Recchi who also moved up three spots.  

Number #6 on the Notinhalloffame.com countdown belongs to Thereon Fleury who also moved up a few spots.  

The #7 spot belongs to Alexander Mogilny, who moved up from the #11 spot. 

The number #8 spot on this years’ countdown belongs to Dave Andreychuck, who holds the record for the most power play goals in the game.  

The #9 slot belongs to Bernie Nicholls, who is having his best offensive numbers for the list and the highest ranking ever of his career.

Rounding out the top ten of the 2016 list is Jeremy Roenick who moved to the elite top ten.



For the first time since we began our site, this will be the first time where there will be no new eligible entry for the top ten, in fact none of the new eligible players cracked the top twenty-five.

The highest debut this year belongs to Alex Kovalev, who makes his Notinhalloffame.com hockey debut at #33.  The Russian is a former Second Team All Star.

Kovalev is joined by Roman Hamrlik (#85) and Miroslav Satan (#91) also make their first appearance on the list.

There is a new debut on our list, but not of a first year eligible player as the late defenceman, Carol Vadnais, takes the #100 spot.

With no surefire first year inductees eligible for the Hall, could this propel the Hockey Hall of Fame to induct men like Lindros, who many feel have been passed over for a few years.

If it is going to happen, 2016 seems like a wide open window to us!

So with this major update set up here at Notinhalloffame.com, you know what we want you to do right?

We encourage all of you to take a look and cast your votes and make your voices be heard.  If you have not voted on anything previously, we ask you to tell us your thoughts!

     











It was not that long ago that the Hockey Hall of Fame selected four former National Hockey League players to their institution, all of which were ranked in our top ten on our Notinhalloffame.com Hockey List. They are Teemu Selanne (#1), Paul Kariya (#3), Mark Recchi (#4) and Dave Andreychuk (#10). As such it is time for us to present our new list of those to consider for the Hockey Hall of Fame for 2018.

When putting together any new list we obviously remove the recently inducted but add on those who we consider worthy. We also look at the opinions that all of you have given and the votes you cast on each former player on the list.

Let’s get right to it shall we?

Debuting on our list at #1 is Goalie, Martin Brodeur. The long time New Jersey Devil did it all in the NHL, including winning the Calder, the Vezina four times and winning three Stanley Cups and an Olympic Gold Medal. He should be a first ballot lock for the Hockey Hall of Fame.

Returning to #2 is Don Cherry, the acid tongued commentator who has been a fixture on Hockey Night in Canada for decades.

Martin St. Louis, the 2004 Hart & Art Ross Trophy winner makes his first appearance at #3. That same year he would lead the Tampa Bay Lightning to their first Stanley Cup win. He is also a three time winner of the Lady Byng Trophy.

Alexander Mogilny moved up to #4 from #6. The Russian had the most Goals in the 1992-93 season and is a six time All Star.

Former Calgary Flame, Theoren Fleury moved up two spots to his highest ever rank of #5. He was a seven time All Star.

Bernie Nicholls also achieved his highest rank with a move up to #6. He is a three time All Star.

Longtime Ottawa Senator, Daniel Alfredsson moves up to #7 and is in his second year of eligibility. The Swedish star was a six time All Star.

Nine time All Star Jeremy Roenick comes in at #8.

John LeClair makes his first appearance in the top ten holding #9 on the list. The Vermont born player is a two time First Team All Star.

Pierre Turgeon rounds out the top ten. The four time All Star makes his biggest jump from #14 to #10.

Brodeur and St. Louis are not the only ones to debut on the list this year. Former blueliner, Sergei Gonchar debuts at #27.

At present, the list goes up to 106 former players, with our intent

The entire revised list can be found here.

5. Theoren Fleury

Is it possible to be one of the more inspirational players in hockey history yet have a career that is a somewhat cautionary tale to young players? With Theoren Fleury the answer appears to be yes.
