Is Eric Lindros a hall of famer?

Eric Lindros looked like he was a lock for the hall of famer before leaving the Flyers, now, while his numbers still support it, not alot of people do.Eric Lindros was one of the best power forward of the 1990’s, he was up there with Keith Tkachuck, Cam Neely.

The guy is a point per game player, and then some, and if he can cut back on the injuries, should at some point reach 100 points (likely before is 1000th game) and 400 goals.

Unfortunately, attitude problems can keep you out of the hall, look at Glenn Anderson, he’ll likely never make it, despite being a point per game player.

I know this is a short quicky article, but what do you guys think, this is mostly for discussion, I’d put him in the hall, but I have a bit of a bias, he was my favorite non-Leaf until this year, and now he’s my 2nd favorite player behind Tie Domi.

    I think he should still enter the hall of fame, despite how bad he was playing when he left the flyers, he was still a super-star, and a very popular player in the 90’s.

    Wow, that is a tough call. The problem is the quality of players retiring at the same time from his era.

    I would have to say the next couple years will tell but I am tending towards “no”.

    If Bernei Federko is in, anyone who’s ever been on an all-star ballot has a hair shot.

    I’ve had this discussion a few times this year with people. There are a lot of things Lindros brings to the table. He was one of the 5 youngest guys to reach 500 points, up there with Lemieux, Gretzky, Bossy, and one other I forget at the moment, maybe Hull. That company is legendary enough, but he also has more points than about 50% of the guys already in the hall of fame, so numbers alone support his entry. I can hear some of the arguments against it, but I still think he’s earned a spot, he also won a scoring title did he not? He still has some years left in him too, his career ain’t over yet!

    Lindros has put up good numbers, but he hasn’t been a true impact player for years and he has never won anything of significance (except the one Hart trophy), so I don’t think that he’d make it at this point…who knows if he can do something in the next year or two to change that.

    Glenn Anderson has not and will not ever be inducted as a Hall of Famer because he was an a-hole and although you’ll never read about it or see it on HockeyCentra, he has tasted penis. Personally, I don’t think that matters, but in the macho NHL, I imagine it does.
