The Hall of Fame is a unique part of sports as it is one of the parts of sport that provides the most debate. Every year players become eligible and players from the past remain eligible and fans debate which players should go in. No matter what the decision is there will be those that are upset that their favorites got in or that the people they thought should have no chance actually made it in.

There are plenty of different styles of player in the NHL but one is valued more than any other and has been for a long time. The leader is a player that is hard to find but something that teams need to win a championship. It is so rare to find a leader because they are not made with great leaders just having that quality in them. They are the type of players that walk into a room and immediately take the focus of everyone. They are the type of players that everyone will listen to whether they are talking to rookies or 15 year veterans.

Hockey has always been considered the Canadian sport as it was created in Canada and is played throughout the country. It is almost a right of passage in Canada to put on a pair of skates and play hockey in house league. For Canadians it is a way of life and because of that the NHL is full of great Canadian players. The Canadian system is one of the best and most sophisticated in hockey and they consistently develop great players.

Women’s hockey has rarely received the same respect as the men’s version of the game but recently they have been entering the conversation among the NHLers. The women’s game is very different from the other version of the game and that is why it is hard for many fans to adapt. The women’s game does not have the same overt physicality as the men’s game and usually is not as fast as the men’s game.

More often than not a team’s success is linked to the players that are on the team rather than the men behind the bench. A head coach does most of his work in silence as they make their impression where nobody else can see. Whether it is on the ice during practices or in the locker room when cameras aren’t allowed a coach can make a massive difference on a team.
