Add in his two-way game and his "face of a franchise" status, and I'd induct him.
From a point total perspective yes. But there really isnt that much of a difference between his career and Hossa's. Jagr, Iginla, Thornton, and Selanne are all locks while Alfreddson and Hossa are closer to borderline.
