Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the New York Post,
Cam Neely is in with 395 goals and 694 points in a career shortened to 726 games by injuries. Peter Forsberg, who will walk into the Hall on two good feet upon his first year of eligibility in 2014, recorded 249 goals and 885 points in an injury-shortened career of 885 games.
So then why not Eric Lindros, the game’s most compelling player for most of the decade in which he was healthy enough to participate, who completed his career with 372 goals and 865 points in 760 games?
Keep Forsberg in Philadelphia with Ron Hextall and Garth Snow as his goaltenders, and get Lindros to Colorado with Patrick Roy and which, do you suppose, has the pair of Stanley Cup championships?
Who is inducted first into the Hall of Fame, Lindros or Mike Keenan?
