The Philadelphis Flyers have anounced the induction of Eric Lindros and John Leclair, 2/3 of the legion of doom, into the Flyers hall of fame.

When do you think he will make the HHOF?

Did you hear about the retired proctologist? He spent 40 years saying "what's a place like this doing in a girl like you?"

It's only a matter of time, however, like the following article says, I think he should have been a first ballot HOFer.

This is a really good article explaining why he should already be a HOFer......

Yes I agree, ergo I asked when rather than if.

I have been a long time advocate of having Lindros in the Hall of Fame. I feel inevitably he will get in just like Gilmore. However, from this fans stand point, he should have been a 1st Ballot. Take out contract negotiation's and Quebec from his story line and this guy was the best player or top 5, on the ice during a period of 3 years in which guys like Sakic, Lemieux, Gretzky and Yserman played. He only became top 10-20 after the Stevens hit and further down as a result of additional injuries. That length of time to sustain elite level play against some of the best to ever play the game alone should have got him the hall of fame nod. Comparison to the best to ever play the game is why I feel he should already be in. He was a bigger better version of Iginla in his prime and as a centerman.

100% agree with Josh.

Lindros should be a shoo-in for the HOF due to his undisputed status as best player in the world for a good 1 1/2 - 2 1/2 yr period. That alone, for me, puts you in the HOF.

I truly hope he gets in eventually. What's right is right, despite what I or others may think of him as a person.

Screw the Habs. Boston Sucks. Bah Humbug, DeadWings . . . and yes, oh yes, Go LEAFS Go!!! Yeah, it's offseason baby!

I don't want to start any fights with the Lindros fans, but I personally don't like him. I will not dispute that he was a good talented player, he was.

I don't want him in the HHOF, but he will eventually get there. I don't think he deserves it, but that is my own opinion and it cannot be changed by facts of who is in the HHOf currently or why people think he deserves to be there.
