OT - Is Lindros a future Hall of famer?

Nothing else to add, habs fans do you think that Eric Lindros will be a Hall Of Famer when he will retire?

Unfortunately I believe his injury riddled career does not have the consistancy needed to be in the HHOF. If the big E would of maintained the same productivity, I say he would of been a shoe in.

Hard to say. If you believe the hype when he was drafted and after his first few seasons sure but the way his career has taken a nose dive it's hard to say. In the end he will probably make it, but it will be a borderline pick.

I don'T think so. Even if he was a force to be reckoned with when he started his career, the fact that he never won the cup and his difficult years since all the concussion problems will preven him from going in the HHoF.

No. He had good seasons but he wasn't a dominant player for an extended period of time.

Butch Goring made it, so you never know. Goring did have all those cups for him though

I hope not. He's been such a jerk throughout his disappointing career.

If Bure isn't a HOF'er (at least not on the first ticket) then there's no way Lindros is.

he could have been if he had been just a little bit more heatlhy. But with all these injuries and missed seasons, too bad but he's not.

but like one said, if Butch Goring is in it, who knows about Lindros...

If he does, I will personally kick Bonnie Lindros right in the ovaries.

This is a no brainer: a resounding nope!

Too bad, though. If he maintained any health whatsoever, he'd be a shoe-in; not only to be a Hall of Famer, but possibly gaining legendary status.

Reminds me of the debate about Cam Neely.

There was a time in his career I thought that he was going to be a player with multiple Stanley Cup rings on his way to a shoe-in election into the H of F, my have times changed.

If he plays another 3 or 4 years, then yes. For sure.

I say yes, in like 20 years. People forget how utterly dominant he was in the mid to late nineties. Could easily have been a top 10 player if he'd stop looking at his skates all the time.

It would be nice if he could finish off with 5 or more healthy years, maybe crack 80 points a few times in that span. If he does do that, then he'll perhaps be a shoo-in again. It'll mean he finishes his career with over 500 goals and around 1100 points. That's pretty good. There are certainly players in the HOF right now that can't match his 839 points in 711 games. We had a stretch of around 50 years from 1950 to 2000 when basically everybody who won the Hart was a shoo-in HOFer, right? More recently, with the wins by guys like Theodore and St.Louis, I guess there is less case for saying an MVP is a likely HOFer. But Lindros probably has a chance. He does have considerably more points than Neely in similar games, and he's only a good season or a couple more ragged ones away from him in goals. It's a fair comparison, IMO.

I say no, way too inconstant, and too many time injured.
