Does anyone defend Clark Gillies' HOF entrance?

Of all of the guys who are in the Hockey Hall of Fame I'd have to say Clark Gillies is the most talked about on these boards as to who should not be there. Does anyone think he is well-deserved to be in there? Or does everyone on the Planet think he should never have gotten in at all?

His stats:

Top point seasons - 91, 85, 78, 77.
Top goal seasons - 38, 35, 35, 34

Four Cups

First Team all-star in '78, '79 (they looked to be slow years for left wingers)

Has 697 career points in 958 games good for a PPG average of 0.72 and his playoff PPG is 0.57

I personally have no clue how he got into the Hall of Fame with all due respect to him. Is it not supposed to be a shrine of greatness? Clark Gillies was not great by any means. I dont know any opinions?
