Dino Ciccarelli had a rare skill that few players even are worthy of comparing to him. If you don't know what made him so special then you likely are staring too much at stat sheets and not enough at his actual play.

Bernie Federko is another player who was elite at a particular (different) skill that the history of the game should not forget, hence his induction.

If anything, the criiticism of their inductions could be a sign of the lack of adequate documented memoirs to remind future generations of why they were so great at what they did, why they were hockey greats, why the history of hockey ought not to forget them!!
