Does Lindros deserve to be a Hall of Famer?
Wed, November 7, 2007

Eric Lindros is hanging up his skates after a 13-year career marred by injuries and controversy.

Lindros will announce Thursday that he is retiring from the NHL to work with the NHLPA.

His total of 865 points might not seem like enough to guarantee going into the NHL Hall of Fame in a few years, due to his health and the lockout. But does Lindros deserve to be elected into the Hall, despite the few honours he garnered on the ice? Have your say in our forum.

Lindros says goodbye

not only did he snub quebec he also snubbed sault st marie when he was drafted into junior because he would be too far away from his mommy and daddy in london..he is a total baby and thats why the people in quebec all came to the arena with pasifiers in their mouth..a total joke it he gets in the hall of fame..

I don't know about the Hall of Fame, but there are a lot of people adding comments here who are not being fair to him. The guy is a class act from head to toe. I saw him over the years at a few fundraising events, and there was no player better with the kids than Eric. He'd ask them about their own hockey exploits (e.g. what team do you play for? what position do you play? Offered them tips from his own experiences, etc.) and really encouraged them.

$5,000,000 donation to the London Health Centre - Ya he's a real A hole.

No, not Eric. Instead, put his dad Carl in the builder's category. What a shame it would be.

he was part of the beginning of the end....he had the audacity to be chosen #1 in the draft by quebec city and says no them?

and for those of you who's argument is 'if it weren't for his concussions...' - i'm sorry but you shouldn't be given a HALL OF FAME nod for what could have been..

Are you kidding me? After what that egotistical egg-shell head and his arrogant parents put Clarke and the Flyers organization through? Clarke must be mellowing in his old age though, I heard him say on TSN that he thinks he should get in some day. Egg-Shell Head Lindros SHOULD NOT BE ELECTED TO THE HALL OF FAME. From the moment he came into the league he always thought he was bigger then the NHL itself with his snub of the Nordiques who drafted him. He caused disharmony and trouble wherever he went...never won a Stanley Cup...and when you put everything down on paper...he never lived up to the hype of his talent. Mind you we are dealing with the NHL here...the easiest Hall of Fame to enter...all you have to do is look at some of the players that have been inducted in the past decade or two and you realize that you really don't have to accomplish great feats to enter...unlike the hallowed NFL Hall of Fame in Canton Ohio...where you do have to earn your way in!

Actually I hear that Lindros can't leave his house if the wind is gusting to over 30 mph...!!!

It could give him another concussion!

No. It's simple. It's funny how every Toronto writer is saying he should be in. I think it says so much about Toronto's knowledge of the game.

The big E deserves to be in the Hall.Just imagian what he could have accomplished if he hadn't had all of the concussions

DID YOU SAY HALL OF "SHAME"
Dave, 2007-11-08 20:58:51

ARE YOU KIDDING ME ???????
Kim, 2007-11-08 20:53:34

No hall of fame for this fellow. Or his mother.

Lost total respect for the both of them when they refused to go to Quebec.
