Half expected really. the only twins to both record over 1,000 NHL points. How long do you figure till they go into HHOF?

Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

They should be first ballet and only take up 1 spot for the induction.

There is a 3 year waiting period and they'll probably get in - aside from their obvious talent, the 'twin' card will help the case. It will be interesting how they handle, two spots or one. If considered individually then there are a ton of players with the similar or better levels of success that should be considered first...

- Jeremy Roenick
- Pierre Turgeon
- Daniel Alfredsson (fellow Swede)
- Jerome Iginla
- Alex Mogilny
- Rod Brind'Amour
- Vini Damphouse
- Keith Tkachuck
- Doug Weight
- Alexi Kovalev
- Dave Taylor
- Bobby Smith
- Bernie Nichols
- Brian Propp
- Steve Larmer
- Dale Hunter
- Pat Verbeek
- Brian Bellows
- Theoren Fleury
- Ray Whitney

Apologies if I made errors and some are already inducted, but I think I have it right.

I was fortunate enough to be at their last game. Classy players.

As far as the HOF, they will likely get in, eventually. But to Leigh's point, there are players on the list with comparable numbers and those with a ring are likely to get the nod before the Sedins.

While I donít necessarily think they deserve to get in before some of the people you listed, I suppose one edge they would have is the fact that they each won an Art Ross Trophy, while Henrik also won a Hart Trophy. From that list, only Iginla can say he won an Art Ross, and none have a Hart Trophy to their name.
