Effing ridiculous to not see Peter Bondra listed.  First-ever Caps player with a jaw-dropping one-timer.  503 goals.

 

Will never visit the HHOF while this preposterous omission remains in place.

Abe Pollin, David Poile, Bryan Murray, Terry Murray, Dale Hunter, Mike Liut, Peter Bondra, Olaf Kölzig, and Jaromir Jagr should all be in the Hockey Hall of Fame.

 

Are the Washington Capitals really going to wait until Peter Bondra and Olaf Kolzig are inducted into the Hockey Hall of Fame to retire their numbers? What's the hold-up on that all about?

 

Peter Bondra # 12

Olaf Kolzig # 37

 

Washington Capitals Retired Numbers

 

# 7 - Yvon Labre

# 5 - Rod Langway

# 11 - Mike Gartner

# 32 - Dale Hunter

Kolzig surely is the most memorable of the goaltenders for long-suffering Caps fans throughout the decades of uncountable playoff failures. “Olie the Goalie”.  Losing net-minder to the Red Wings in the 1998 Final.

 

But without Bondra’s number being retired, Caps fans like me should reserve any outrage more against our own club management than HHOF.   Thought about that after posting last night.  The lack of that is surely a factor in the minds of those who decide and vote.

 

P.S.  I guess the disheartening lead-blow to Toronto and the Ovie injury further fouled my mood.

David Poile is on the nominating committee for the Hockey Hall of Fame. I'm surprised he has not inducted himself yet, or inducted Bryan Murray.

 

Olaf Kolzig is one of two qualified players to be the next goaltender with a losing record to be inducted. He is 303-297 in the regular season, but when you add his overtime losses to his regular losses, he is 303-321. He also has a losing playoff record of 20-24. He should be inducted though. Losing goaltenders have been inducted before. Olaf Kolzig won the Vezina, and the King Clancy. He is Washington's all-time leader for goaltenders in games played, wins, losses, ties, goals allowed, minutes, shutouts, points, games played in a season, minutes played in a season, ties in a season, playoff shutouts, playoff penalties.

 

Peter Bondra is second all-time in goals for Washington, sandwiched between Ovechkin and Gartner. Bondra has to be inducted too!
