If he would have retired after 2000, he'd have likely been a first or second ballot guy. And he was pretty good in 2001-02. But the last four years, combined with the off-ice drama, and the fact that he never learned from his mistakes, makes him one of the most polarizing players in league history, and his case much easier to argue against than many think.
I'm not saying Lindros will get in next year, however I think one day he will for these reason. If Pavel Bure can make it after only playing a grand total of 702 games, when it comes to games played Lindros should get in because he played a grand total of 760 games. Now Bure has more career goals with 437, however Lindros had more career points with 865. As for NHL awards Bure has a Calder, and two Rocket Richard Trophys. Lindros has won a Hart and Lester B. Pearson Award. (Now known as the Ted Lindsay Award) So in my opinion both are both equal in their NHL careers and I think Bure set the mark for players like him him to one day be inducted.
