Does Canadian Ultimate Need a Hall of Fame?

An interesting thread has been started on the Ottawa Carleton site. Essentially, a committee has been set up to evaluate and select the first class of a new Ottawa Ultimate Hall Of Fame.

I think it's a great idea. I think we should consider it for Canada as a whole (Through CUPA).

Some issues would be outstanding should the powers to be decide on a Canadian HOF:
  • We have no stats to decipher the good from great
  • We would have to determine what categories such a hall would have, and what would be the criteria
  • We'd have to select a solid impartial selection committee (No CP writers, please!)
So, is a Canadian HOF a good idea? Who from your area would be first ballot candidates?

I'll try to start the ball rolling here:

1st ballot:

Womens - Erin Huck
Open - Derek Alexander

Whoever spearheaded the idea to build UPI

Oops, I forgot to mention that I am in the Ottawa area.

Hall of fame is usually for people who aren't actively playing any retired. SO i'm going to go with Steev Limin from Calgary... Helped Calgary win Nationals twice. In vancouver you'd have to pick Elvis, Adam Berson, until some of the furious dudes retire.
