At the top of their game, both guys could leave the opposition -- and fans -- spellbound by the enormity of their skill set. Now that Lindros is in, the next long-overdue inductee should be Theo Fleury.
He sure was!

And I agree, Theo should be in as well.

I am also so glad one of my favorite goalies made it. Vachon was always one of my favorite non Flyers players. He deserves the H.O.F.

My bud and I were allowed to stand behind the net one game (where the Zamboni enters the ice) and Eric and Darian Hatcher came around and clobbered each other up against the boards right where we were standing.
My bud is taller than me but even he said, geebus, wouldn't want to be out there playing against either of those 2 guys!

Not that I am a tall guy, but seeing Eric on skates up close and personal, made me feel like a skinny elf comparatively!
