40
New Los Angeles Kings captain Anze Kopitar is piling up the kind of numbers needed for a Hall of Fame nod. The 28-year-old has 243 goals and 684 points in 764 regular-season games and another 20 goals and 64 points in 75 playoff contests. He has a pair of Stanley Cup wins and has won the Selke and Lady Byng trophies.

Subsequently, one may also ask, is Toews a Hall of Famer?

Jonathan Toews, Center It's entirely possible that Toews makes the Hall of Fame despite never getting north of 80 points in a season. He has all the other intangibles -- no other player has lived more off the "leadership" narrative since Mark Messier retired -- but he's 27th in points among active players.

Furthermore, is Claude Giroux a Hall of Famer? We'll say he plays 8 more seasons, he averages even 50 points then that's another 400, bringing his total to around 1100 points. That puts him a little outside of the top 50 all time (right now). He's finished top 4 in Hart voting twice and will likely be captain for well over a decade. That's a hall of fame career.

Similarly, you may ask, is Bergeron a Hall of Famer?

Someday, years from now when Bergeron is retired and his No. 37 in the rafters and his name enshrined in the Hockey Hall of Fame, the 1,000-games-played milestone will be seen as just another accomplishment in a brilliant career.

Will Zetterberg make the Hall of Fame?

Including 2018-19, Zetterberg still has three years left on the 12-year contract that he signed in 2009, with a cap hit of $6.08 million. Zetterberg has a solid resume for the Hall of Fame, making him a compelling decision for voters down the road.

Will Joe Thornton make the Hall of Fame?

Verdict. The Sharks can't go wrong with retiring Thornton's number first. Thornton likely will go into the Hockey Hall of Fame as the first player primarily remembered for their time in teal, and he'll also be remembered as one of the greatest players of all time.

Add in his Stanley Cups, Masterton Trophy and perhaps the 2022 King Clancy Trophy for his humanitarian contribution in eradicating the locker room of vermin reporters, Phil Kessel is a very qualified Hall of Fame candidate.

Will Sidney Crosby be in the Hall of Fame?

Crosby may have a Stanley Cup, a gold medal and pretty much every other award a hockey player can recieve, but it still isn't enough to put him in the Hall of Fame. The playoffs are where legends are born, and Crosby is not stepping up to that level.
