Poll results: PHT readers say Martin St. Louis is on a Hall of Fame pace

Aug 25, 2013, 10:32 PM EDT

Martin St. Louis career is such a great underdog story, it’s amazing that the Tampa Bay Lightning star’s journey hasn’t already been optioned by Hollywood. He’s clearly a favorite among PHT readers, however.

In early August, PHT asked if the 38-year-old forward is on a Hall of Fame pace. As you can see from the poll results below, the answer was a resounding “Yes.”


It’s tough to remember a more one-sided PHT poll in history. In fact, here are a few imaginary ones that still might not top the St. Louis’ “Yes” votes:

OK, those might top (or at least match) these results. Even so, it’ll be interesting to see if future Hall of Fame voters agree with PHT readers whenever the time comes.

    Out of those 66 “no votes” 40 of them were trolls, and the other 26 are just morons!

    Ask an easy question, get an obvious answer. Of course St Louis is on pace for the HHOF. He already has more hardware than a lot of guys already in. 1 Hart Trophy, 1 Lindsay/Pearson, 2 Art Ross, 3 Lady Byngs and a Stanley Cup ring.

    First ballot, no question. In addition, he led his team to victory in winning The Cup; a true, honorable leader. The kind of professional athlete that you want your kids to emulate. When you consider his physical size, while playing a game among giants; he’s a lock.

    A-anyone would tire of Tortorella.
    B-who cares who is more likeable.
    C-easy, blocker to the corner, you’ll have all day.
