As always, the issue with rating Lindros is expectations. A 73 point season is nothing special for what Eric Lindros should have produced. I think we all feel that way. But I don't think he should be kept out of the HOF because of what he should have done, and I would bet he gets inducted within the next five seasons. The other players in his age cohort are coming up for vote now - Niedermayer, Forsberg, Kariya, etc. Lindros will look better against that competition.
