Eric Lindros: Does the former No. 1 pick – a 7-time All-Star – deserve to be in the Hall of Fame? We don’t pretend to follow the NHL close enough to know, but reading this, it sounds like he’s no lock: “If you analyze the situation strictly from a numbers perspective, it would be hard to argue that Lindros is a first ballot Hall of Famer. With only 865 career points, [he] falls significantly behind the likes of Doug Gilmour, Joe Nieuwendyk, Dave Andreychuk, Dino Ciccarelli and Adam Oates, all of whom are also eligible for the Hall this year. That being said, Lindros’ average of 1.14 points per game far surpasses anything that group was able to accomplish.” No, we won’t drag Bert Blyleven or Cris Carter into this discussion. [TSN]
He has an excuse.
