I always viewed Bernie as a borderline candidate. Wasn't as upset with his induction as others were, and not as upset as with Gillies. Scored 100 points four times, scored at a 100-point clip two other seasons, and a 90-point clip four other times. He did it in anonymity in St. Lou and with lesser talent. I wouldn't rank him as one of the best 100 players ever, but he's better than a lot of guys that were already in there.

Most of the most contentious inductees were chosen by the Veteran's committee until its abolishment, or when they brought in a bunch of old-timers in the 1960s.
