Are you thinking that his donning the Wings #9 jersey to complete a request his dad made years ago was his entering the Hall as a Wing?

If you look at the HHoF website and literature you I believe will find him in all cases as a Flyer, except for historical photos... While he is not in the Hall as any team's player, it is all but a given that anyone who knows anything considers him a Flyer. He has stated that he will always be a Flyer IIRC and he still resides in the Philly Area I believe... but please keep in mind that he presently is employed by the Detroit Organization and we cannot deny that... also he grew up as a Wings fan and his father, Gordie, was a Detroit legend and will always be looked as a Wing... just as Mark will be as a Flyer.
what i read then was incorrect i guess. they said he went into the hof as a wing.
