Bernie Federko was a star center with the St. Louis Blues from 1976 to 1989, before finishing his career with a final season as a Detroit Red Wing. He is also generally known as the whiping boy for the HHOF lack of standards. While Federko scored 1130 points in 1000 games, he was never considered a dominant player in his era, never won any post season awards and only once led the Blues past the second round of the play-offs. In his 14 year career, he only played in the mid-season all-star game twice. I am not sure if he was injured every year at that time but Brian Sutter or Rob Ramage would represent the Blues instead of Federko.
What do you think? Is Federko the poster boy for the HHOF low standards? Or is he the poster boy for the under-rated small market superstar?
