Ex-Kings defenseman Rob Blake misses Hall of Fame cut … this time

Rob Blake, whose shot from the point was every bit as hard as his hip checks, did not make the Hockey Hall of Fame’s Class of 2013. But it would seem to be only a matter of time before the former Kings defenseman’s name is added. Blake certainly has the credentials, with a Stanley Cup victory with the Colorado Avalanche in 2001 and a Norris Trophy as the league’s top defenseman while with the Kings in 1998. Scott Niedermayer, Chris Chelios and Brandan Shanahan were elected to the Hall as the only players this year, and Fred Shero and Geraldine Heaney were picked in the builders category.
