I believe even you mentioned it in the HOHHOF, to punish Shore by not electing him his first year of eligibility.
There are arguments for Harvey over Shore, I don't really take issue with anyone putting Harvey over Shore. I don't believe some overate him, some choose to overlook the negative side to Shore.
Well, "best of his generation" is debatable, depending on if you consider Morenz part of Shore's generation, but your overall point stands.
And yes, the actual HHOF did make Shore wait until the second class.
