It's too easy to get into the Hockey Hall of Fame. But that's my opinion, so I won't argue on HOF. I believe his legacy has been built up by his death. There is no way he's the 43rd best player of all-time. Plus, you can't tell me his Sabres career was worth much. If he doesn't die, is his number retired in Buffalo?
