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.
Lindros and Fleury legitimately belong. Yashin had a few high-end years and was a difficult center to play against.
