Winning his second Conn Smythe the following year made him an absolute lock.
I'd split the difference and say he was in by 1991. Leader in save percentage three times by that point (a feat that only Roy and Hasek have accomplished since it became an official statistic), an additional 2nd place finish, a fifth place finish, two Vezinas, three Jennings, two 1st Team All-Stars, two 2nd Team All-Stars, a Conn Smythe, two Stanley Cup Finals, a Calder Cup, and an 11-2 record in playoff overtime. Let's say his sinus operation in the off-season ended his career: I think he's still in. 1992 made him a 1st Ballot HOFer.
