Those numbers alone scream HOF.
Scoring 600 goals, while finishing in the top ten in goals only twice (and only once for GPG), and only one top-ten point finish; that is the mark of a compiler. Andreychuk was never an elite player and does not belong in the HHOF. Ciccarelli only had two top-ten goals seasons, but he also had two 100-point years - both top-ten in the NHL. Not to mention that Ciccarelli scored about 1 PPG while Andreychuk was well below. Mike Gartner had five top-ten finishes in goals, as well as scoring 30+ in his first 15 seasons and in 17 of his 19 total. Even if he cores the minimum - 30 - in those seasons, he still hits 510 in those 17 seasons. Andreychuk only managed 30 goals nine times.
