Does Grant Fuhr belong in the Hall of Fame?
Sure, he has Cups and a Vezina. And he has
the record for most goalie games played in a single season.
But he also has extremely mediocre stats compared to his contemporaries, most of whom are not in the Hall of Fame like he is.
Then, there’s this other thing: he’s arguably the first ever African Canadian (or African American) hockey star in history. A true trail-blazer.
So does he belong?

A friend of ours used to claim that Doug Gilmour didn’t belong in the Hockey Hall of Fame because he had “one good year.” This friend used to compare Gilmour’s stats to Kirk Muller’s, apparently because he didn’t know he could look them up on the internet.
Gilmour was only rarely a star offensively but was one of the elite defensive forwards of his era, receiving numerous Selke nominations. In this episode, we discuss whether he should have been inducted and where he ranks among the great players of his era.
