Bourque and Coffey are Locks for HOF

According to a TSN's NHL Networkarticle,
Bourque and Coffey might as well mark Nov. 8 in their datebooks now because that's when the formal ceremonies will take place.

Yup, sometimes news like this makes me feel old. When players that I grew up watching have all retired and qualify for the Hall of Fame, then it's time to say "where has the time gone".
Definitely Bourque and Coffey belong in the Hall of Fame. They redefined their blueliner (see: Defenceman) position. Not only were they solid on the even strength battles, but they showed their skill by shooting and passing the puck on the powerplay.
Both players racked up points, especially Coffey who collected them like Cups. Coffey was an integral part to the Edmonton Oilers and Pittsburgh Penguin dynasties.
