I used Carbonneau as an example of a guy that had the Selke's but didn't score enough, I suggested Datsyuk likely did score enough...while his scoring is low on its own, combined with Selke's will likely be enough.
I don't get the suggestions that he wasn't as good as Crosby that I've seen a lot of here. I don't disagree, but why does that matter? Do you need to be better than Crosby to get into the HOF? Crosby will likely be seen as the best player to have started his career within the last 20 years....so he'll be in his first year of eligibility....so will a few others that weren't considered as good as him and there will be more that still get in as well, but take more time.
