1)Is Brendan Shanahan hall of fame material(3 Stanley Cups, and 1 gold medal, and all his stats)? 2) Your favorite Shanahan memory? BQ:What do you think of Nikita Filatov being loaned to the KHL. Well, I have your answer right here. 1) He's borderline (I'll provide data later) when you look at the rest of the competition that is coming up. . Some whoever have much higher points/game and better international numbers. The Hall of Fame has also spoken clearly that scoring 600 goals doesn't make you automatic (see Ciccarelli and Andreychuk). Shanahan averaged 0. 89 points/game – only three forwards in the last 23 years have been elected to the Hall of Fame (excluding those elected by the veterans committee) with worse point/game numbers Clark Gillies – 4 Stanley Cups, 1 Canada Cup, 2 time post-season 1st team all-star (more hardware than Shanahan) Igor Larionov – 3 Stanley Cup, 7 World Championships, 2 Olympic Gold Medals, 2 World Juniors, 1 Canada Cup BUT didn't play in the NHL until he was 28/29 Bob Gainey – 5 Stanley Cups, 4 Selkes, 1 Conn Smythe He had fewer 100 pt seasons that Doug Gilmour, Dino Ciccarelli, Jeremy Roenick, Alexandr Mogilny, and Pierre Turgeon (all of whom have higher pts/game averages) Also with the pending eligibility of players like Jagr, Sundin, Sakic, Forsberg, Lindros, P. Turgeon and Selanne (all of whom have career pt/gamer averages over 1. 0 pts/game more post-season all-star appearances and more major hardware, and more top 10 scoring finishes) and the existing eligibility of players like Fleury, Oates, Mogilny, Bure, Ciccarelli, Gilmour – there's not a lot of room for Shanahan (Remember, it's the Hall of Fame, not the Hall of Very Good) 2) His 1st 50 goal season in St. Louis BQ: I think the Filatov move sucks because I had Filatov in my Calder Trophy pool. He played 6 or more games in eachj of the last two years so no Calder for him. . He's no longer eligible. Personal fortune (or lack thereof now) aside, I think it's a good move for Filatov AND Columbus. . Reasons which I provided in Erica's question
