In other words, I'd perceive it as Toronto-centric if Sundin beat Shanahan on an HFBoards poll. As an induction into the Hall, I'm not so sure that their team affiliation played such a big role.
I don't know if it did but if there were any bias my guess is that being the captain for the leafs weighs heavier than playing junior in London.
