If he retires after next year, he will not get in. 300 goals and 550 assists will be a good total, but not good enough for the HOF. Over 1000 pts and he's a lock. Over 500 goals and 750 assists and he's first ballad.
I don't agree with such a line of reasoning, but unfortunately thats the way it is. The HOF favours good players who have a long career (Cicarelli) over great players who have a shorter career (Lindros). I doubt the fact that Pav has lost over 100 games to lockouts, was a late bloomer, and never had his totals boosted by playing in the 80s and early 90s will be taken into account.
I hope I'm wrong and that 4 Lady Byngs, 2 Selkes, 2 Stanley Cups and the most amazing skillset I've ever seen will be enough.
