Earlier today, the Hockey Hall of Fame Selection Committee announced the 2012 Hockey Hall of Fame Inductees. As expected, Joe Sakic, Adam Oates, Mats Sundin and Pavel Bure were elected to the Hall. My congratulations goes out to these players for outstanding careers.
As with every other Hall of Fame Class, there were a couple snubs. First-year eligible payers, Brendan Shanahan (8x NHL All-Star; 3x Stanley Cup Champion) and Jeremy Roenick (9x NHL All-Star) did not make the cut. Both Shanahan and Roenick should make in the near couple years. To Jeremy's credit, he is already a member of the United States Hockey Hall of Fame.
