After my recent article on Steve Toll and then the NLL Best Player's bracket over at InLaxWeTrust, I decided to go through the league and see who else should someday qualify for the Hall of Fame. For fun, I broke the list into four categories: No-brainers are those who would be inducted if they retired tomorrow. Likely Candidates are those who might not make it right now, but if their careers last a few more years with a similar level of success, would probably make it. Some Debate is the fun one – those who have had (or are having) good careers, but perhaps not quite to the Hall of Fame level. And Too Early are those who have had great careers so far and seem to have enormous upside but simply haven't played long enough to make a real decision. I've left rookies out entirely because it's too early in their careers even to put them on the Too Early list.
I've listed the players in alphabetical order in each list.
Did I miss anyone, or put anyone in the wrong list? Leave a comment and tell me why!
