Why Lindros doesn't belong in the hall

In Ken Campbell's article - Forsberg should thank Lindros – he showed the very reason why Mr. Lindros shouldn’t be in the Hall of Fame.

Aren't the great players supposed to elevate the players around them?

Lemieux, Gretzky, Orr and others elevated the players around them and all Lindros did was consistently show that he was a prima donna.

Eric relied totally on his size and never learned to keep his head up. Forsberg was a team player with the heart of a lion, perhaps something Mr. Lindros could have learned from Peter.

Great players make those around them better. Lindros never showed the will to lead and that is why he never succeeded.

That is why Forsberg will be in the hall and Eric will have to pay to visit
