This is a prime example of trolling and uneducated hockey fans. He earned his spot yet some fans still think they know better then people actually associated to the sport and league... HAHAHA
I guess I'm over in the corner with these other trolls and uneducated hockey fans
Kevin Allen, USA Today: “Don't have any issue with today's HHOF choices.
But Shanahan should have been automatic.
Matthew Barnaby, former player and TV analyst: “
I am blown away that Sundin made it and No Shanahan. Wow!
Rich Chere, Newark Star-Ledger: “
Mats Sundin in the Hall of Fame before three-time Stanley Cup champion Brendan Shanahan? Really?
Nick Cotsonika, Yahoo! Sports: “
Don't understand how Sundin is a first-ballot Hall of Famer and Shanahan is not. … Shanahan will have his day. It just should have been today.
Darren Dreger, TSN: “
I do my best to respect all nominees and the process, however, no Shanahan and no Pat Burns makes NO sense. Hall of Fame debate will rage on
Ray Ferraro, TSN: “
For all asking--and there is a lot-- I would've picked shanahan before Sundin this year.
Stan Fischler, hockey writer: “
Brendan Shanahan belongs in Hall of Fame ahead of #Mats Sundin. Shanny won a Cup; Sundin won nothing but Toronto writers. Voters blunder.
Elliotte Friedman, CBC: “
Surprised Shanahan didn't get in. Very deserving.
Joe Haggerty, CSN New England: “Can't wait to hear Will Arnett doling out punishment as Brendan Shanahan to the Hockey HOF for snubbing Shanny today.''
Jim Matheson, Edmonton Journal: “
Sorry but Brendan Shanahan would have been a better first-ballot HHOF guy than Mats Sundin. More pts and 3 Cups, plus fearsome fighter.
Bob McKenzie, TSN: “
Personally, I think it's ludicrous that Brendan Shanahan wasn't a first-ballot HHOFer
, and that Fred Shero and Pat Burns are still not there.''
Pierre LeBrun, ESPN: “Thrilled for Bure and Oates. Their HHOF call was long overdue.
Stunned, however, Shanahan wasn't first ballot
Adam Proteau, formerly of The Hockey News: “If I were in charge of the Hockey Hall of Fame inductions today, Sakic, Shanahan, Fred Shero, Pat Burns and Geraldine Heaney would be in.''
Dan Rosen, NHL.com: “
Like many others, I, too, am surprised that Shanahan did not get the call today.
