Scott Stevens in The Hockey Hall Of Fame…Why?
Scott Stevens was selected 5th overall by the
Washington Capitals in the 1982 draft. Over the
years he has had two other destinations other
than Washington. 1 year with St. Louis in 1990-91
and 13 years with New Jersey since.
Stevens has racked up 196 goals, 712 assists for
908 points, 2785 penalty minutes, and a career plus
minus of +389 in 1635 games played. His stats are
very impressive but stats alone do not get you in to
the Hockey Hall Of Fame.
Lets face it, Scott Stevens is a cheap shot artist, I
know I am going to get flamed by all New Jersey
Devils fans for syaing this but cheap shot artists do
not belong in the Hockey Hall Of Fame! Stevens has
had many cheap shots but here is the worst one in
the 1998 Nagano Olympics, Canada was facing the
US. During the game Scott Stevens went and gave
Wayne Gretzky a cheap shot in which Gretzky would never rebound from.
Yes, he gave the ambassider of hockey a cheap
shot and people are still pushing for him to get to
the Hall Of Fame? When Gretzky came back to New York he was never the same and I am telling you
this, if Scott Stevens didn’t deliver that cheap shot, Wayne Gretzky would still be playing, you and I
both know that I am right in this one! So please
hear me out and don’t put a cheap shot artist in
