Ignoring Women in the HHOF

Damien Cox in The Spin at the Toronto Star,

There are a number of highly qualified, highly respected and thoughtful hockey people on the selection committee of the Hockey Hall of Fame.  Who’d have thought they could screw up so badly?

Last week, they announced the next Hall of Fame class, and it’s a good one - Glenn Anderson, Igor Larionov, linesman Ray Scapinello and the late Ed Chynoweth.

Sadly, however, the 18-member selection committee again booted the ball so badly on honouring women in the game that it has seriously discredited itself and soiled the reputation of this hockey institution.

It’s so rare I fully agree with a Cox rant. But it happens, and this is one such occasion.
