Pat Burns Should Be In The HHOF

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,

LOS ANGELES—The home of Angels, where Pat Burns would and will always have a place and where every single member of the 18-man Hall of Fame selection committee should have been ashamed to show his face this weekend.

That’s right, every single one of them, including good men such as John Davidson and Bill Torrey, who did not resign in protest after the committee denied the beloved coach entrance to the Hall last week with a vote that shall live in hockey infamy.

They operate behind closed doors, in secret, and without transparency. Except there is transparency here.

This much is obvious. The selection process is tainted by personal agendas and long-standing grudges.

The Hall of Fame committee: no accountability, no credibility, no heart.
