Not sure I really agree with him getting in as I really feel that you should have been considered a top player for at least a decent stretch of your career to get the nod, but hey, still happy for him. He certainly has an argument with his cup wins, and no one is going to argue he wasn't a factor in getting those rings.

And I'll never complain about another Penguin getting voted in, that's for sure.

Yup, happy every time a Pittsburgh athlete reaches the ultimate honor.

Kariya got in, Recchi is just as deserving in my eyes.

Actually the "Wreckin Ball" only won one cup with the Pens during his playing career. He got exiled to the Flyers so that Tocchet could escape hell and get his name on the Cup with the Pens. Interesting fact though. Both are still winning Cups with the Pens. Tocchet as an assistant coach and Recchi as the Penguins Director of Player Development.
