And he remains to this day arguably the best player on the planet, and has held that mantle for some time.

His NHL career alone is worthy and the HOF considers all professional hockey accomplishments.

Won't comment on the Big E's chances ("E" for enigma), except to say that he would not get my vote.

And one doesn't need to rely on stats as a crutch for making this decision. Forsberg over the last several seasons has been doing EXACTLY what everyone had expected Lindros to be doing at this point in his career. Namely, being the outstanding player on a perennial Cup contender.
