His 99-00 season in which he finished in 3rd place for Hart was IMO one of the most impressive seasons for a player

He came back from his 2nd reconstructive knee surgery on his right knee and put up 58 goals + 36 assists. He was the main reason the Panthers finished year 20 pts better then previous season and made it back to playoffs

And his 94 playoff run was more impressive then Lindros's 97 playoff run

Bure was electrifying in finals vs Rangers ,, Lindros (And entire Flyers team) laid an egg vs Wings

IMO Lindros will be waiting a bit longer for his ticket to HOF
