Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Larry Brooks of the NY Post,
The Hockey Hall of Fame announced new voting procedures beginning with 2010 that will allow the process to be less restrictive and more inclusive, specifically as it relates to female candidates. It’s a welcome change.
But this is the year for the 18-member panel of voters to remedy what in my mind its most glaring omission to date and one that cannot be defended.
This is the year for the committee to elect Fred Shero, the coach who only helped revolutionize the game during the ‘70s on Broad Street, to the Hall of Fame.
This is also the year for the committee to honor the great Pat Burns with election and induction in November so he can receive his plaque and enjoy the tribute he so richly and unambiguously deserves.
