U.S. Hockey Hall of Fame Class of ’11

Posted By Carp On August 1, 2011 @ 4:02 pm In Hockey,New York Rangers,NHL | 216 Comments

I’m back from a productive meeting at Centennial Golf Club.

USA Hockey today announced the newest members of its Hall of Fame, to be enshrined in the fall. [1]

They are:

Chris Chelios, Mike Emrick, Ed Snider, Gary Suter and Keith Tkachuk.

[2] [3]Chelios was the first hockey player, back in the 1800s and he’s in the discussion as one of the greatest American-born players ever.

Emrick absolutely deserves the honor, a true professional, great story teller, etc.

Snider deserves this year’s Mario Lemieux whiner award. Not exactly sure how he’s a Hall of Famer. Maybe he’s getting in because he finally realized he needs a goalie to win (though I don’t know if he has one yet).

I don’t have any comment on the others, except that I think Tkachuk might have been one of the furniture guys in Nagano.
