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.
I agree with you, but don't think that any of the rest of those guys are getting near the hall.

As well, he's either a builder or a player. What he has done since 2008 or what he did as a player. I don't see the Hall as being a shrine to a blend of your hockey career and your post career community service.
