There have been many who have called the omission of Connie Francis to the Hall as the biggest crime the Hall committee has done thus far. We don’t necessarily agree with that, but we don’t completely disagree that she was the template that other female Pop stars followed.

    Likely because he played the bulk (and peak) of his career with the Washington Capitals, a lot of hockey fans were not watching Kevin Hatcher. The durable defenseman was able to score a lot of points and netted 34 goals in the 1992-93 campaign. On four occasions, Hatcher was able to achieve at least 50 points and was able to…
