The fourth Friday of the month is when we respond to the mail. This month was a bit challenging, but you asked us about the Anaheim Ducks and we answered.

Question 1) Is Ryan Getzlaf a Hall of Famer?

Ciara Durant – Yes! Definitely! Getzy has been a cornerstone for the Ducks. Like I’ve said, he’s not exactly a spring chicken anymore, but he still plays a pretty good game of hockey.

Greg Johnson – Ryan Getzlaf is a guaranteed Hall of Famer. 875 points in 917 games during this dead puck era almost guarantees that. He has a Cup. And he’s been one of the premier playmakers in the game. He’s even added some defense to his game over the past few years.

Jacob Robles – Yes, I believe Getz is a HOFer. I wouldn’t say he’s a first-ballot selection, but he deserves to be in the Hall one day for sure.

Ed Stein – I’m from the Mike Greenberg school of thought on this. Whenever someone asks me if player X (in any sport) is a Hall-of-Famer, if yes doesn’t immediately come to mind, then the answer is no. That said, if Getzlaf gets to 1000 points, he’s pretty darn close to it in my mind. 1033 points, puts him in the top 75 scorers of all-time and he’s a lock.
