I guess it is a bit watered down, but not overrated in my mind.
There are only few guys NOT in the HHOF who should be. I think it is a very good indicator of a great player. It has NHL bias, yes, but mostly the best players are playing in the NHL. (After the 80's at least).
Players before that are remembered by fans and players after that are remembered by fans and the HHOF.
For example, I remember Nummelin winning the scoring title in Swizerland. He would never be a HHOF member even if he played in the NHL. That does not mean he don't get remembered.
