I really like that someone mentioned Mogilny and not necessarly for just his hockey numbers. I personally think he was the one that broke the wall for all young Russian players to get into the NHL.

Larionov should make it too.

I'm not sticking up for saying Linden should be in the Hall but I would think that they would consider stuff like community work if a player was on the bubble.

I don't think Linden will make it, but he'll have his number retired by the Canucks and go down as one of the classier, more well-liked players of his time. That ain't so bad...

I feel the exact same way as you. I think that he won't put up the numbers and unless the Canucks win 3 straight Cups, even then it would be questionable.

Just so happens he played it in California and with the Ducks, so it was all done very quietly (and in the shadow of Paul Kariya as team poster boy).
I know exactly what he has done, I was his biggest fan (well maybe all the screaming teen girls were even bigger fans ;) while he was still playing here (in Finland, that is). I'm not saying he hasn't done anything since his rookie season, I'm just saying that without a rookie season like his, it wouldn't be obvious that he belongs to the HHOF. Hopefully he can win the Cup still, before coming back home...

Yeah I hear ya. Maybe it was just the way you worded it...in any case, yeah the rookie season definitely boosts the numbers a bit. However, many who followed it closely said that his season with the Ducks when Kariya was out of the lineup with the concussion and contract dispute may have been a more impressive, dominant performance than his shocking rookie season...so at least he wasn't a fluke performer.
