Lindros is another Hart winner who may not make the HOF, but a lot of people think he'll get in eventually, and even if he doesn't I can't imagine there's a person on Earth who wouldn't take him above Theodore.
Had Iginla won the Hart trophy it would have been the weakest of the modern era. Instead we can safely say St. Louis in 2004 is the weakest, possibly 2011 Corey Perry (although anybody who won would have been a very weak winner that year).
