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

Only if there's a new category for 'Whiners & Sucks.'

Come on! He was as useless as T's on a Bull! I'll give him one thing tho, he duped a lot of people out of a lot of money ... Hey Clarkie, you here that!

I think a Hall of Famer needs to have a Hall of Fame career. Not a Hall of Fame group of seasons.

Woulda been nice if Bobby got him a goalie--by the way, how many playoff series' has forsberg won since he left colorado(and sakic and roy)??Who cares if he;s in hall-he was THE best player from 93-99.

Here's all you need to know about Lindros.

Played big in meaningless games.

Played small when they mattered.

And it was never his fault.

Won the Hart trophy when Jagr deserved it.

No way he deserves HOF

Well, it's good to see some people have a head on their shoulders, and can look past the poor media attention that was brought to him. All the "Big E" wanted to do was "PLAY HOCKEY!!!" the only wrong thing he did was let the wrong people take care of the off ice issues. The on ice issues were well taken care of by a future Hall of Famer, Eric Lindros!!!

Lindros showed incredible promise as a junior, but faded as his career went along. Don Cherry regularly reminds hockey fans that true grit and dealing with adversity are the stuff of legendary HHOF members. Lindros showed neither and in no way should even be considered. His retirement just opens the door for someone to take his place who is more dedicated to the game. Glad he's finished.

So his Mommy and Daddy finally give him permission to retire. I guess they give up on their dream. He was a disgrace in the NHL from the day he was drafted. There is no way he deserves to get to the HOF. If his parents would of let him grow up to be a man he might have been able to do something to deserve it.

Are you crazy? Do you have a concussion? He is not worthy of inclusion to the HHOF. He didn't come to play every night. Hell, he didn't want to play for the Nords. Big sucks to not belong!!!!! As Farquart says, put his Mom in there.

Lindros in the Hall of Fame?Are you kidding me?That must be an early April Fools Day joke!The only times I ever saw him act tough was when the opponet was around 5'10".He was right in his element when he was with the Rangers!

Lindros "could have been" the most dominant plyer since Bobby Orr - and for a year or so, he was. Unfortunately, he came into the league as a spoiled little boy and leaves the same way. I used to think that he simply didn't have the stones to stand up to his Mommy and Daddy (who along with injuries ruined his career). Then I realized that he probably did - he just never wanted to be a man. Hall of Fame for this over-grown child - don't disgrace it! This from a lifelong Flyer fan.
