Lindros, QuinnDdeserve to be in Hockey Hall of Fame
Eric Lindros and the late Pat Quinn share one dubious distinction when it comes to their respective illustrious careers: Neither won an NHL championship.
Of course, the last time we checked, the sport’s most sacred institution is not called the Stanley Cup Hall of Fame. It’s the Hockey Hall of Fame and, because of that, it says here both men are worthy of induction when the Class of 2016 is announced on Monday.
Since becoming eligible in 2011, Lindros has been snubbed five consecutive times, partially because of the presence of a flood of marquee players who have deservedly found their way into enshrinement.
But there is no such excuse available this time around, given that the 2016 cache of candidates lacks any shoo-ins.
