After 15 seasons, Henrik Zetterberg is hanging up the skates. The career-long Red Wing was not medically cleared to play professional hockey, forcing him to retire. After winning the Conn Smythe in 2008 and being part of the Triple Gold Club, some feel he is should be included in the Hockey Hall of Fame. Others feel his career was good, but not great enough to be inducted, no matter how beloved he is. What do you think? 🏒

From the Conn Smythe shift to the Triple Gold Club, Henrik Zetterberg has proven he is worthy of the Hockey Hall of Fame. There is no doubt he is among the greatest Red Wings ever after over 1000 games with the team and nearly 1000 points. His leadership is unequaled and he showed you didn't have to be a high draft pick to be one of the best players on the ice. He deserves to be in the Hall.

While he has been really good for his career, Zetterberg isn't considered one of the best players ever by many fans. The Hall of Fame honors the greatest players and innovators of Hockey. Zetterberg hasn't shown the otherworldly excellence that's required for a Hall of Fame nod. In 15 years, he was only named an All-Star twice. Zetterberg had a great career, but it wasn't Hall of Fame worthy.
