Maybe during a slow HHOF year... but I don't think he deserves it.

I am pretty sure he won't be.
He has the potential to become one, but injuries and crappy attitude ruined it all.

If he buys the penguins, get the finances back on track, build a powerful dynasty with like 5 cups in 10 years, he COULD be inducted in the "builders category".

If his career ended tomorrow, I would say absolutely not. He still has a chance to make up for lost ground, but that chance is quite slim.

Im not sure about this one... but Lindros was so dominant in his good years... was a pain in the *** to play against and terrific in the offensive zone. A big presence out there... he really was a true star, complete player.

I remember when Lindros was a good player, Koivu totally levelled him once*. It was beautiful.


*My memory is probably bad, and it was just a normal hit that knocked him off balance, but shhh.

I also remember that Lindros gave Koivu his first big hit to welcome him in the NHL. In his prime, Lindros was one of the most feared players in NHL history period. Not only he could beat u on the score sheet but he could also send half of your team to the clinic all in the same game.

I also remember Quintal beating the snot out of him once. That was great.

As to the question, it's closer than many here think. If Neely got in, so should Lindros.

if he gets into the hall of fame... the NHL in my books, would be the worst professional league ever.

AFAIK, The NHL doesn't decide who goes into the Hall, it's mostly past players and journalists.

Is Forsberg a future HOF?
If we can make a case for him, then I think a case for Lindros is perfectly reasonable.

the question is ... was he clearly a dominant player in his time as a player ...

yes he was ... if Pulford makes it , Lindros CLEARLY makes it

You make a legitimate point there...

If you compare regular season point totals, Forsberg and Lindros are both at par with each other, though both their careers have been riddled with injury...

But Forsberg has acheived a lot more despite all the hockey years he's lost to injury...

He has an incredible 162 playoff points in 39 games...

1994-1995: NHL - Calder Memorial Trophy (Rookie of the Year)
1995-1996: Stanley Cup (Colorado)
2000-2001: Stanley Cup (Colorado)
2002-2003: NHL - Art Ross Trophy (Leading Scorer)
2002-2003: NHL - Bud Light Plus/Minus Award (shared with Milan Hejduk)
2002-2003: NHL - Hart Trophy (MVP)
2005-2006: Olympic Gold Medal (2006-SWE)

Based on that, if I had to choose between the two in the same year of eligibility, I'd pick Forsberg each and every time without even thinking twice...

Why? Weve seen players get in for less...

I think he's in.

For those prime years he had, he was one of the most intimidating hockey player I've ever seen..

Alright, his prime was short. But those 4-5 seasons was more impressive to me than the 15 years career of other HOFers.

It's a hall for the truely elite one. Lindros was in this category of player.

He's in for me.

If Dickie Duff is in the Hall of Fame, Lindros is a lock.
