Thing is, the "eyeball test" is a test for some other Hall of Fame that isn't the current incarnation of the Hockey Hall of Fame. Dino Ciccarelli wouldn't pass it. Glenn Anderson wouldn't pass it. Bernie Federko wouldn't pass it. It's the standard that should exist but never has.
This was in Puck Daddy's post about Chris Osgood's Hall of Fame chances, and it struck me for obvious reasons. I'm too young to have ever seen Bernie play, but I'm curious as to what some of the more veteran GTers thought about that. Of course, that opinion's seen through Wysh's Patrick Division googles, and obviously he's been in since 2002, so there's no real debat if he IS in, but...should he be?
BTW, if Chris Osgood ever gets in, I will boycott Toronto. Not just the HHOF, but the whole damn city!
