OT - Is Lindros a future Hall of famer?
 
Nothing else to add, habs fans do you think that Eric Lindros will be a Hall Of Famer when he will retire?

a big fat HELL NO LOL

Unfortunately I believe his injury riddled career does not have the consistancy needed to be in the HHOF. If the big E would of maintained the same productivity, I say he would of been a shoe in.

beowulf 07-16-2006 02:29 PM

Hard to say. If you believe the hype when he was drafted and after his first few seasons sure but the way his career has taken a nose dive it's hard to say. In the end he will probably make it, but it will be a borderline pick.

:bow: :biglaugh: :cry:
































NO!!!!!!!!!!

PockIsGoD 07-16-2006 02:50 PM

I don'T think so. Even if he was a force to be reckoned with when he started his career, the fact that he never won the cup and his difficult years since all the concussion problems will preven him from going in the HHoF.

JordanStaal#1Fan 07-16-2006 02:53 PM

No. He had good seasons but he wasn't a dominant player for an extended period of time.

felixd 07-16-2006 03:05 PM

Butch Goring made it, so you never know. Goring did have all those cups for him though

Schooner Guy 07-16-2006 03:07 PM

I hope not. He's been such a jerk throughout his disappointing career.

coolguy21415 07-16-2006 03:08 PM

If Bure isn't a HOF'er (at least not on the first ticket) then there's no way Lindros is.

Talent Analyst 07-16-2006 03:54 PM

No .. but his parents yes :biglaugh: :biglaugh:

wedge 07-16-2006 03:57 PM

he could have been if he had been just a little bit more heatlhy. But with all these injuries and missed seasons, too bad but he's not.

but like one said, if Butch Goring is in it, who knows about Lindros...

TheHoser 07-16-2006 03:58 PM

If he does, I will personally kick Bonnie Lindros right in the ovaries.

I really couldn't givev a rats *** on this "head case"!

You can't honestly find something else to talk about?? Think of the little red engine "I think I can, I think I can"

:dunno: :dunno:

Mike8 07-16-2006 04:03 PM

This is a no brainer: a resounding nope!

Too bad, though. If he maintained any health whatsoever, he'd be a shoe-in; not only to be a Hall of Famer, but possibly gaining legendary status.

Teufelsdreck 07-16-2006 04:07 PM

Reminds me of the debate about Cam Neely.

There was a time in his career I thought that he was going to be a player with multiple Stanley Cup rings on his way to a shoe-in election into the H of F, my have times changed.

Route66* 07-16-2006 04:26 PM

No way, too many injuries

If he plays another 3 or 4 years, then yes. For sure.

Form and Substance 07-16-2006 06:00 PM

I say yes, in like 20 years. People forget how utterly dominant he was in the mid to late nineties. Could easily have been a top 10 player if he'd stop looking at his skates all the time.

Blind Gardien 07-16-2006 06:11 PM

It would be nice if he could finish off with 5 or more healthy years, maybe crack 80 points a few times in that span. If he does do that, then he'll perhaps be a shoo-in again. It'll mean he finishes his career with over 500 goals and around 1100 points. That's pretty good. There are certainly players in the HOF right now that can't match his 839 points in 711 games. We had a stretch of around 50 years from 1950 to 2000 when basically everybody who won the Hart was a shoo-in HOFer, right? More recently, with the wins by guys like Theodore and St.Louis, I guess there is less case for saying an MVP is a likely HOFer. But Lindros probably has a chance. He does have considerably more points than Neely in similar games, and he's only a good season or a couple more ragged ones away from him in goals. It's a fair comparison, IMO.

wshld 07-16-2006 06:12 PM

I say no, way too inconstant, and too many time injured.

BTW, nice avatar Arel ;)

goalchenyuk 07-16-2006 06:15 PM

:dunno: who is Lindros ?
