Those numbers alone scream HOF.
Andreychuk's top 20 goal and point finishes
goals: 4, 9, 12, 17, 18
points: 9, 16
Legendary! Those finishes almost put Brad Boyes, Matt Moulson, and Johnathan Cheechoo to shame. And of those only the 12, 16 and 17 place finishes were in Buffalo, so much for "the best ones."

I wouldn't mind at all if he got in. Gary Roberts was never really a 1st liner unlike Guerin (and I guess you can say the same for Whitney excluding Phx). I don't see Andrechyuk as a star though his career totals are pretty damn good but he was never really a star unlike Guerin. Guerin had like twice as many All Star game appearances too not that that should ever be used as a criteria but just saying my point that the guy was an NHL star for a decent length of time which should be the main criteria for getting in.
If Guerin get's in they'll have to change the name of the Hall of Fame, because there was nothing famed about his career. And he was clearly not in the Roenick, Modano, Tkachuk, Leclair tier.
