Yesterday, everyone's favorite internet hockey humorist DownGoesBrown posted this in his piece on the HOF induction ceremony (congrats Adam Oates, p.s.):
The rules say you need to have been inactive for three consecutive seasons before you can be inducted into the Hall of Fame, so it's going to be a tough vote in 2015 when the entire NHL is eligible.
This is depressing but it also brings up a fun thought: Who would the 2015 draft class be in that case?
If every NHL player's career ended this year, who would be the four first-ballot HoFers?
Here's a gimme: Zdeno Chara. Now you pick.
