The NHL HHOF will be announcing their inductees for the 2010 class. Lindros' name has been mentioned, I personally think he lacks the professionalism and character to be inducted.

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/story/?id=325333

Here's a funny Twitter quote from BDGallof:

BDGallof If Lindros gets into the HHOF, will his parents then pull him out and want him to enter a Hall of Fame elsewhere?

Also eligible are: Doug Gilmour, Joe Nieuwendyk, Dave Andreychuk, Dino Ciccarelli and Adam Oates

Other names being mentioned include Pat Burns (they better get him in there, he's an accomplished coach and unfortunately is very sick and may not have much longer) and Angela James for the Women's nominees.

Please...anyone BUT Lindros! I dont' care about the hardware he's won (memorial cup, olympic gold, and hart trophy), but his refusal to play for the nordiques because he was required to learn french is absolutely bogus. If i were French Canadian, and a large part of the NHL is, I would be offended with his selection.

The NHL intervened to get him traded, which was the wrong message to send to players. Be a big baby, and get your way. Lindros epitomizes this....and let's reward him with the HOF? no thanks.

Who are Angela James and Cammi Granato and what are they doing in the Hall of Fame?

I'd rather have Lindros and Mogilny, thank you.

Lindros, Mogilny, and Bure are all more worthy than those two.

I'm sorry but the Hall of Fame should be mainly for what you did for hockey in general, and hockey in general is predominately a MEN'S game. Most people don't even know who these two are. You don't see women being inducted into Cooperstown or the Football Hall of Fame.

They deserve recognition, but not HHOf recognition.

? u think kids grow up dreaming about being the next great referee in this game? Its about time some women got recognition and enter the HOF. There's no baseball for women (but softball) or football either, and neither is an olympic sport (softball is). Women's hockey is a women's sport and with a few more legends that can be immortalized in the HOF, and u'll see more girls playing with female role models on their minds.

So then have a Women's Hockey Hall of Fame if women's hockey is it's own seperate sport.

I love women's hockey. It combines two of my favourite things - Women and hockey.

I think it is a shame women have to work to support their hockey careers, where as men get paid to play hockey for a living.

For women to even make money they have to go to Europe, and I doubt it's even close to what the lowest paid AHLer gets.

Ottawa has the Senators of the CWHL - go out and support the ladies.

I don't know dude...they play with a puck, a hockey stick, they skate, and have goalies. Sounds like they play the same game, hockey. Separate organization, yes, but the sport is the same.

So then why did you write "women's hockey is a women's sport". If that's the case, then they should have their own Hall of Fame.

Like men's hockey is a men's sport. I mean that its a legitimate sport, but its the same sport that men play. Why shouldn't female pioneers be recognized for their work in a class that is dominated by male atheletes? Its the contribution to the sport of hockey, not men's hockey, women's hockey. Hockey in general. Female hockey players, as Dash mentioned, don't get paid much at all, and gotta support themselves with other jobs. My argument is that female hockey pioneers belong in the HHOF. They've helped spread this game to female athletes who already don't have much inspiration to play, yet they've grown that market.
