Hockey List revised, Dominik Hasek #1

          Revisions, Revisions, Revisions.   The Hockey list has been revised, and it what seems to be an annual tradition, a new number one has been crowned and a major overhaul in the top ten has occurred. Last year, three of our top ten were selected (Chris Chelios #2, Brendan Shanahan #5, Scott Niedermayer #6) and there are many new eligible players who are top ten worthy; including our new number one selection.          The new Number one selection is Czech Goaltender, Dominik Hasek. The “Dominator” won the Hart Trophy in 1997 and the Vezina Trophy six times. There is no logical reason to think he won’t enter immediately. This moved Don Cherry back down to the number two slot, a position he seems to hold every time there is no surefire Hall of Fame Hockey player for enshrinement.          Paul Kariya moved up to #3, while another first ballot nominee, Peter Forsberg moves into the #4 spot. Like Kariya, Forsberg did not hit the 1,000 point plateau, but both had a stretch where they were considered among the elite; a status that we have always felt should be essential for the Hockey Hall of Fame. American superstar, Mike Modano also debuts in the five spot, bringing the third first ballot nominee into the top five.           Soviet born, Sergei Makarov slips down to sixth. Although we personally have been a big supporter for Makarov to the Hall, votes from this site has pushed him down the pecking order. As always, this site is assisted by all of you! The #7 rank is a fourth newcomer, Mark Recchi. Although he does not have the accolades of those higher on the list, he does bring to the table the highest career point total of anyone not inducted (and eligible). His could be the most interesting case of the new debuts.          The top ten rounds out with Eric Lindros, Pat Burns and Dave Andreychuck, who all of have strong Hockey Hall of Fame cases.          There are other new entries on the Hockey Hall of Fame list. At #38 is Goaltender, Chris Osgood, #39 Doug Weight, #53 Brian Rafalski, #64 Owen Nolan and #79 Sandis Ozolinsh.           You know what to do! Check out the new entries, and make your votes heard!
