Joe Sakic - Enshrined in 2012
One of the most consistent performers in NHL history, Sakic embodied everything a great NHL leader should be. As captain of the Quebec Nordiques/Colorado Avalanche franchise for 17 seasons, Sakic won two Stanley Cups, a Conn Smythe in 1996 and a Hart Trophy in 2001. His powerful wrist shot and creativity helped him score 625 goals and 1,641 points over 20 seasons. (Getty Images)

Quote of the Day

It was a big dream. [Messi] is probably the best athlete out there, so it's a big honor, for [Kuznetzov] as well. It's maybe a once in a lifetime opportunity to meet the best player in soccer right now. I'm a big Barcelona fan and Messi fan, so it's huge. You can take [Michael] Jordan, [Mark] Messier, [Wayne] Gretzky, those kinds of [people]. It's an honor to meet. It's nice to be in that position.

— Washington Capitals forward Alex Ovechkin told told Monumental Network after meeting soccer star Lionel Messi prior to Argentina's practice at Fed Ex Field in Landover, Md. on Friday
