I think it helps Lundquist's case that he has been one of the faces of the league with a big personality, who is well known to casual fans ... and he may be helping to "build" the sport more so than some nondescript player with similar numbers.

I never saw Ed Giacomin play but it seems like a similar case in many ways... he seems to have had a similar type of career and also was a well liked hockey icon to the general public. Dunno if that's "right" but I think it is a factor for the HOF.
