Here's a good, long thread from HFboards back in 2012, talking about Datsyuk's HOF status.
I think he gets in. If 1,000 points is the criteria, there won't be many guys making the HOF after Crosby, Ovechkin and Malkin retire. How many 1,000 point players do you think the future generations will produce? Not much I think. Doesn't mean there won't be guys making the Hall of Fame anymore.
