I think what I said earlier sums up my opinion pretty succinctly: a guy should get get into the HOF because he was one of the best players of all time, not because he could have been one of the best players of all time but wasn't because of injury.
Many people believe he is one of the best players of all-time, even with the injury history.

Lindros will get into the HHoF; it's hockey politicking that will determine when it happens, though.
