You're misinterpreting what I said. I didn't mean that he should get in based on hypotheticals. Paul Kariya is my favourite player of all time but I can't see him in the hall.
My point is that Theo had the numbers DESPITE that. Not that he could have been much better (despite the fact that he could have). I think based on his career as well as the work he's done post-career and his redemption he should get in. I definitely see him over a guy like Turgeon or Nicholls or Damphousse. Theo was an elite scorer, a prolific international player, and on top of that everything he's done since 2008.
