With full respect to the emotions of Burns' final years and the push for him to be inducted, he just isn't a "builder" of the sport. Some other coaches (Shero) you could make a case they pioneered new horizons in coaching and training; Burns was "just" a very good coach.

If there was a coaches' wing he'd be in already, but there's not... and I'm not saying this to diminish him, but I can't see it as a "travesty" that he didn't get into a category where he doesn't belong.
