We're going that route now? Tell me you can see the difference between his situation and Lindros' situation. Gretzky did something Lindros didn't. He went to a team at the bottom of the standings and turned them into a dynasty. He didn't refuse to play for them.

I guess it's possible but some Don Cherry type dinosaurs might have asked the same when Tretiak got in too doesn't really mean alot at the end of the day if either situation actually occurs IMO
Tretiak was, and still is, respected by Canadians. Look no further than the ovation he got in the opening ceremonies of Game 2 in the 1972 Series. The Torontonians cheered him when he was introduced. There was always a mutual respect with Tretiak even if we wanted to beat him. Nobody really should ever question his induction.
