So why is Makarov not in the HHOF?

He has been enshrined in the IIHF HoF for over a decade, which is appropriate and a "no-brainer". As great as he was, though, you have to do more in the NHL to get into its HoF. Bure, for all his talent AND obscene number of goals, is still waiting, for example, and we're forced to acknowledge that championships (or lack thereof) weigh heavily for those who don't have standout seasons and/or statistical accumulation.
Talent was absolutely deserving, NHL resume isn't, imo.
