Roberto Luongo, the Sedin brothers and Daniel Alfredsson in the Hall of Fame

Today we learned which members of the hockey community will be inducted into the Hall of Fame. We especially wanted to know if Quebecer Roberto Luongo would be there.

And finally the one who was considered the GM of the Canadiens will imitate the coach of the Flannels by entering the prestigious Hockey Hall of Fame.

He will not be the only player to access it. His former teammates Henrik and Daniel Sedin, with whom he played for the Canucks, will also be included. It will be the same for Daniel Alfredsson.

Riikka Sallinen and Herb Carnegie (as builder) will also be there.

With 489 wins, Luongo is the fourth goalkeeper in history with the most wins. He was recently overtaken by Marc-André Fleury and never caught up with Patrick Roy or Martin Brodeur – all Quebec.

While he’s never won the Stanley Cup (he came close, that being said), he deserves his spot in the sun.

Today Luongo is part of the leadership of the Panthers and could very well, one day, become GM of a lineup on the Bettman circuit. His impact on hockey is significant.

And it started in Val-d’Or with the Foreurs (and in Acadie-Bathurst) before continuing in the NHL with the Islanders, Panthers and Canucks for nearly 20 years.

As for the Sedin brothers, I don’t think anyone here will criticize their contribution to hockey. Now part of the Canucks leadership, they made it rain or shine in Vancouver, a city where it often rains.

And as with the former senators (and Red Wings), it’s easy to recognize his contribution to hockey too. He also approached the Stanley Cup and was the face of Sens for many years.

– Who are the forgotten ones of the cuvée, in your opinion?

– Time to make room for Larry Robinson in Montreal?

– This is not the first time his name has been raised.

– Imagine …

– What do you think about it?
