Chris Osgood, currently injured, won his 400th career game in late December; only 10 goaltenders have ever done that. He's No. 8 all-time in playoff wins (74) and has won three Stanley Cups, including two as his team's primary goaltender.

If the current injury indicates Osgood is near the end of his run, the question arises: Is he good enough to make the Hockey Hall of Fame?
