Pavel Bure in the hall - Compared to Lindros

Pavel Bure is being inducted into the hockey hall of fame, and rightfully so.

on NHL.com this poll is posted

What was Pavel Bure's greatest accomplishment in the NHL?
Three-time goal-scoring champion
Back-to-back 60-goal seasons
779 points in 702 career games

Which got me thinking - again...about lindros
pavel put up spectacular numbers some seasons
others not so much due to injury the similarities of their careers with Pavel being in and Lindros being out doesnt make sense to me

will lindros get in and what would his poll be

What was Eric Lindros' greatest accomplishment in the NHL?
Hart Trophy as League MVP
115 Pts & 165 PIMS 1995-96
865Pts in 760 Games

Lindros should get in. He was among the game's elite for most of a decade and the best player in the world for 3-4 years. Bure, to me, was sort of like Yvan Cournoyer on steroids. Amazing player, not as dominant or complete as Lindros though.

I like Lindros, he was the total package. Without injuries who knows eh? But like Flyer Frank said he was the most dominant for a period of time. Politics aside he was a force and has good numbers.

Lindros was a great all-round player, quite possibly the greatest combination of skill and physicality the league has ever seen and he should be in the HoF. There are a couple of downsides however: His handling of being drafted to Quebec - although arguably they got the better of that as the players they traded for him won them Cups as the Avalanche a couple of years later - and the fallout at the Flyers when the injury bug started to bite him.

1) Bure accomplished more as for personal stats
2) Both the players won total ****
3) Put them both in the HOF if you want to make their fans feel good
4) They still mean **** compared to the great players as they did not won anything

Lindros won two WJC golds, an olympic gold and one Canada Cup.
He also won the Hart and the Leaster B. Pearson, so saying that he didnīt win anything is kinda wrong...true he didnīt win the cup but not everybody who is in the hall has.

Bure won the Calder and he won the Rocket Richard Trophy twice.
He also holds several records for the Canucks and Panthers as well as a few international records.

There are guys in the HHOF that have accomplished less than these guys, not that that should make them automatic but itīs something to consider.

Both Lindros and Bure did not win Stanley cup. I am not even going to discuss a good players career without this trophy, sorry..

Next time you will place a WCJ gold among grown men hockey trophies like olympic gold, I will floor you silly, believe me

Yeah, we may as well discuss the great career of Brian Noonan since he won a cup and never discuss great players like Marcel Dionne and Cam Neely because they never won a cup. Stick to kissing any Czech's ass because you are completely lost when it comes to other topics. One person could not win a Stanley Cup dope. How many cups does your idol Jagr have without Lemieux?

I see the point about lack of cups - however the lack of cups doesn't automatically make you non-HoF material, the same as being on a cup-winning team doesn't automatically make you a HoF candidate.

Cup wins are a indicator of potential HoF worthiness, but aren't the sole gatekeeper to entry.

The only way Lindros could have won a cup with flyers was if he played in goal. There's 20 men on a team not just 1
