That's Yashin.
Yashin had no career longetivity in terms of good production nor did he have 5 elite seasons. He was never considered one of the world's 5 or 6 players fore more than a season or two. He missed a season during his peak because of a contract dispute.

My point still stands, if you have around 3-5 seasons that are elite and are also fairly good for the rest of your career then you're probably a HOFer. Lindros and Fleury come fairly close to this criteria. They were especially Fleury great players from the beginning to 2nd last year of their careers and they were also elite players for a decent period of time though injuries broke that up a bit more than it does with others.
