Ah, I see. The research in the Goaltenders Project suggests that Hainsworth was just numbers and wasn't well respected at the time (relative to what we'd think based on stats). While Vezina was almost universally touted as fantastic. But I'm not here to start a debate on it, it was just a curious inquisition...

No, Cude is certainly not in the HHOF...Theodore isn't exactly on a one-way ticket there himself, so I figure they would be close. If Iginla simply breaks that tie, I wonder how that changes things - even if not for you specifically - but in general...
