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!!
For certain players yes I would agree but for others, it's pretty clear there was a much lower bar or threshold required for their induction.
Clark Gillies, Leo Boivin, Edgar Laprade and Cheevers are examples of this.
