They really aren't that different from a career perspective. Richards at his best (2004) is as good as Elias at his best (2001). Can you really see seperation from a tier like Richards from Elias? I just don't think he's at that HHOF tier but rather a notch below. He'll be in a Propp, Richards, Lecavalier, Tonelli, etc. type of group. Which is fine, but not a group I put in the HHOF.
