Didn't you just say that: "If there were an identical player who didn't miss games, sure. He should get in first. But, there isn't. There isn't really anyone waiting for the HOF who is like Lindros." Maybe I am reading that wrong?
They talk about inducting him because, like you said, he's a truly great player. He's a one-of-a-kind player who was dominant and had a HOF level career.
But there are plenty of truly great players that are not HOF worthy. Truly great, to me, means you are consistently playing. Not playing half seasons throughout your career.
ing a player because he didn't have perfect health is nit-picking, especially in a high contact sport.
It is 100% not nitpicking. It is not like Lindros had small issues. He never played a full season. Only came close a handful of times.
