So...

Oates, Sakic, Sundin and Bure...

Hard to argue with those guys... but... How did Shanahan not beat out anyone not named Sakic on that list?

He has better career stats and 3 more cups.

Thinking the same thing. Hard to believe probably the premier power forward of his generation didn't get in on the first ballot. Most of the articles I read leading up to this were saying Shanny and Sakic were shoo-in's and guys like Oates/Sundin/Bure would be the ones scratching to get in.

Oates was far and away my favorite player growing up.
I styled my play after his and he's why I wore #12...and that's where cprice12 comes from.

Very cool he got in...and good for him for getting the head coaching job on a very good team.

Him wearing the douche bag logo for all those years is why he didn't get in on the first time around.
