Bernie Nicholls - HHOF

Ok, i will ask my brethren for an OBJECTIVE opinion on this issue. Should Bernie be in the HHOF? Measuring post-season all-star teams is a bit unfair b/c of the centers during his era (gretzky, yzerman, messier, francis), never won a cup but likely has the highest pts/gm avg. for the postseason of any NHL forward to have ever played a minimum of 100 playoff games without a ring, notched 1,200+ pts., finished his career averaging over 1 pt/gm, and still had a pt/gm season late in his career (at age 35). Guys like Federko, Goulet, and Gilles (among others) are in. Folks argue for the likes of Roenick and Tkachuk in the future. Players like Andreychuk and Ciccarelli seem next to make the walk, seemingly rewarded for having hung on too long. So, where does Bernie stand? Should he be a HHOF member or not?
