Pavel Bure, Adam Oates, Joe Sakic and Mats Sundin make up a phenomenal class for the 2012 NHL Hall of Fame. But with their positions locked up, it's time to look ahead to 2013.
There are a number of good candidates who will be eligible for the first time in 2013, but the Hall has passed over a few significant other names that will be right in the mix.
It's hard to narrow this list down to 10, and a few players like Phil Housley, Ron Hextall, Eric Lindros, Felix Potvin and Owen Nolan just missed the cut here. There are so many deserving players, but only four can be inducted at a time.
With that in mind, here are the 10 players most deserving of induction in 2013. Good luck picking out four from this group.
