Shero was attached to something that many Canadians didn't see as honorable and that was being a proponent of the Russian system during a time when it was considered antagonistic. It didn't have as much to do with Bullies Hockey as evidenced by the prior enshrinements of including Keith Allen.

Thankfully, the voters recognized Shero's accomplishments and brilliance. Much hard work went on behind the scenes as had been done with recent efforts. The secrecy of past voting was a sore spot but that is in the past.

Shero is in where he belongs.

Congratulations.
