Kukla's Korner Hockey

Why No Brooks

from North Jersey,
The Hockey Hall of Fame will hold its annual inductions Monday in Toronto and it will again be an empty ceremony with Herb Brooks' contributions to the game still being ignored. This is to take nothing away from former Boston Bruins' star Cam Neely and the late Valeri Kharlamov, who will be entering in the players' category. And it's not that Murray Costello, the former president of Hockey Canada who helped the development of minor hockey in his home country, doesn't deserve recognition as a builder. t would be difficult to find a person who did more for hockey in the United States than Brooks, and the impact that he had on the NHL should not be overlooked either.
