Now I understand why Savard was kind of pissed off on Burns' death night when the CKAC reporter asked him over and over why Burns was not admitted in the HoF. Savard was probably one of the few who voted against it , as well as Sinden, who are both part of this Commitee.

Great class gentelemen !
probably Burns didn't like Sinden, cause that's mainly because of Sinden's tight budgets that Burns couldn't really perform there.
however, I don't get the Savard thing. Savard didn't fire Burns, if I'm not mistaken, Burns pulled a Babcock and went to TO.
