With Cranbrook’s Scott Niedermayer expected to be announced on Tuesday as an inductee to the Hockey Hall of Fame, we’re asking: Who do you think is the best B.C. player to ever lace up skates in the NHL? Is it the four-time Stanley Cup winner and captain of Canada’s 2010 Olympic gold medal winning hockey team? Or is it “Burnaby Joe” Sakic, who won two Cups with the Colorado Avalanche and starred for Canada’s 2002 Olympic gold medallists? It could be 741 goal scorer Brett Hull, who played his formative years in B.C. at the North Shore Winter Club and then the BCHL’s Penticton Knights, or it could be Maple Ridge’s Cam Neely, who was cut down in the prime of his career by an ailing hip, or even Penticton’s Duncan Keith, who is still writing a stellar career record with one Norris Trophy, two Stanley Cups and Olympic gold to his credit.

Did the Leafs make the right choice hiring an analytics-focussed GM?
 
Yes, it's about time.
No, they still need better players.
Only time will tell.
Don't know.
