Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Steve Simmons of the Toronto Sun,
The Hockey Hall of Fame is an argument waiting to happen. It doesn’t matter the year. It doesn’t matter who gets elected and who doesn’t.
That is the charm of the conversation and the passion of those who follow the game and believe only what they happen to believe. And that is why, if you open up the phones on a talk show and say “Hockey Hall of Fame,” the lines are forever jammed.
Any day of the year. Any time. There is nothing that automatic. And nobody is ever wrong with their fervent and very personal views.
Mats Sundin is officially a Hall of Famer today and Brendan Shanahan is not. Therein is the joy and the aggravation of the announcement. It depends whose side you are on. In Toronto, you’re excited. In Mimico, you’re irate.
It depends which players you care about and which ones you have no interest or belief in.
