Scotty S. Joins the Best

It's official - Scott Stevens will join fellow distinguished candidates Al MacInnis, Mark Messier and Ron Francis in the Hockey Hall of Fame November 12. For those of us who watched him develop into one of the league's best defenseman here in Washington, there was never any doubt.

Stevens may have hoisted the Cup with New Jersey, but I will always remember him wearing the Capitals' jersey first, whether he was lifting the crowd out of their seats with yet another bone-rattling check at center ice or smiling down at me from my Donald Duck orange juice growth poster.

Ah, memories.

Nothing more I can really say about Scotty that isn't put more eloquently by Mike congrats, Scott. It is a well-deserved honor to be sure!
