Sorry, no answer as to which player they’re picking, but it’s interesting that MacGregor and Tambellini are on the same page, because I got the feeling from a previous Tambellini interview that he wanted to pick Taylor Hall. But hey, opinions can change, and also one talent of GMs these days is being able to make people think one thing when you’re thinking another..
Per Dan Tencer’s Twitter:
According to MacGregor, the Taylor/Tyler decision has absolutely been made and he and Steve Tambellini are in total agreement.

Today the Hall of Fame voters decide on the 2010 crop of Hall of Fame inductees. Eligible players include Dave Andreychuk, Dino Ciccarelli, Doug Gilmour, Joe Nieuwendyk, Adam Oates, and the controversial nominee, Eric Lindros.
Eric Lindros is a bit of an interesting nominee that follows the same story as a guy like Cam Neely who had his superb career cut short by injury. Cam Neely was inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2005 with his share of question marks as well. There’s been much debate as to whether Eric Lindros should be inducted on various forums and blogs… what do you folks think?
