Miika Kiprusoff's done more than Thomas in the past decade when you think about it (Kiprusoff's probably the best European goalie of the past decade though Lundqvist will eclipse him) and obviously you aren't gonna put Kiprusoff in the HOF barring a miracle.
Btw I don't think you need to consider 1000 pts, for Kariya for example, he had more than 800 pts which for me is a better cut-off assuming you do it at a ppg and obviously he was a star forward for a decade mostly in the dead puck era and the face of a franchise.
Really hoping you're right. A lot of those guys (aside from possibly St Louis who just needs to not fall off the planet IMO) just seem to me like guys that are going to be negatively affected. Greatness is still greatness, so seeing a guy like Bure get in while a compiler like Andreychuk is still waiting makes me a bit hopeful in some of these cases.
