There has been a lot of debate the past couple days, ever since Lindros announced his retirement, on whether he should be elected into the Hall of fame.
Initially I said no fucking way, and most of the "experts" were saying yes he should be.....and I'm saying are they fricken serious?????
But upon closer look at some of the people already in the Hall, and comparing statistics...I'm starting to change my opinion. Here is a comparison of a couple H o F's and Lindros:
Lindros.....760 gp 372g 493a 865pts.......1 Hart trophy, 1 Lester Pearson award, 6 all-star appearances.....2 Canada Cups, 3 olympics (1 gold, 1 silver)
Cam Neely......726gp 395g 299a 694pts 5 all-star appearances, 1 50 goals in 50 games season (a very impressive stat) and there have only been 10 other NHL's in the history to have averaged a better goals/game ratio over their career.
Clarke Gillies........ 958gp 319g 378a 697pts. won 4 straight Stanley Cups as a member of the New York Islanders Dynasty of the early 80's (argueably the greatest dynasty in NHL history) Considered by many as the toughest player of his generation.
