I used to visit this site several years ago. I didn't care for some of rude comments that a select few posters consistently made, so I got fed up and left. Hungry for Penguins talk I decided to come back. I am very pleased to see that the posts and comments are much more mature and open minded these days.
Having said that I want everyone's opinion on whether or not you think Mark Recchi will make it into the hockey hall of fame or not? I hope this thread wasn't already done resently as I don't want to irritate anyone.
My two favorite active players are Joe Sakic & Mark Recchi. I love watching the Reckin' Ball play, but I have to admit I am also glad he is no longer on the team because I don't think he is a good fit for us.
I will start by saying I do think he should be in the hall some day, but doubt the powers that decide these things will agree. At the beginning of this year he was 21st in all time scoring. If he duplicates the 48 points he had last season he will sit at #14, quietly passing up Brett Hull, Luc Robitaille, Jari Kurri, Dale Hawerchuk, Doug Gilmour, Adam Oates and Bryan Trottier. To me that makes him a slam dunk, but I've read articles in places like ESPN where they didn't think he would make it, so I'm sure others will disagree as well. Just want everyones opinion, thanks.
