Legit rumors are just as good as 98% done deals...

Rumors of any sort are still just rumors

Larionov being added to the HHOF selection committee I think really helped Pavel getting in sooner than later.

Wouldn't Schultz only be eligible for like 900k his first year? Ballard is somewhere around 4.25M. Canucks already dumped Rome, Ebbet, and a few others. I think they'd have room for Schultz regardless of whether Ballard leaves or not.

No, already covered here http://www.revscene.net/forums/66949...ml#post7959098

Team signing him needs to allocate $3.8 million in cap space to account for bonuses.

Only what I hear from Canucks bloggers, media and others like folks that work at Rogers or for the Canucks through our chat channels.

Sakic, Sundin, Oates, Bure are the 4 players in to the HHOF.

Sundin I think is a joke going in as a 1st ballot HOF, but not surprised since Quinn and Burke are on the selection committee. I've heard that Quinn was in part keeping Bure out for so long, due to some bitterness still between them.

Bure was the greatest thing happened to this franchise anyways, not linden, not 94 cup run, not 2012 cup run or the sedins/ luongo. All these new prospects growing up to be a fan of bure (yakupov, schenn bros)

WTF, imo Sundin's not worthy of a 1st ballot. Although he's been lights out in international competitions, he's got no cup and no individual awards.

Sakic's a no brainer 1st ballot. I'm glad Oates and Bure finally got in, I think they waited long enough. For the last spot, I would have gone with Shanahan or Lindros over Sundin.

Good for Pavel! He deserves it. Now MG has to do something.. Hopefully more than put him in the ring of honour. Bure turned a lot of Vancouverites into hockey fans and the franchise wouldn't be where it is today without that influence.

Keep in mind, this is the Hockey Hall of Fame and not the NHL Hall of Fame.
As a hockey player, Sundin has an olympic gold medal and other accomplishments.

You'd have to think that the Canucks want Huberdeau or Bjugstad. Personally, I'd love to see Bjugstad here. Kids a beast. 6"5, 215lbs.
