Hull of a Career: On Monday, November 9th, The Golden Brett joined his father in the NHL Hall of Fame. His career included 741 goals - only two players have more, Wayne Gretzky and Gordie Howe - and 1391 points over 20 NHL seasons ranking Hull 21st on the all time points list. In the early 1990's Brett Hull was one of the most feared snipers in the league tallying 86 goals in the 1990-91 season. He is one of five players on the 50-50 list, an 8 time all star and an Olympian. He has won the Hart Memorial Trophy (MVP), the Lady Byng and scored a Stanley Cup clinching goal in 1999.

By the time he came to Dallas, Hull was past his prime. You could tell that he could not keep up with the younger legs for long periods of time.

However, he still had one of the most amazing and accurate one-timers I think ever existed, which prolonged his career. And even as a Stars fan, I never could understand how the other team could ever leave him open for the pass and shot.
