Everyone knew he was getting in and to do it now instead of while he was grasping at life is almost as tragic as his passing.

Warrior coach if you could ever apply that label to one.

*slow clap*

It's a damn shame it took this long, but awesome news regardless, much deserved

Easily the top coach right up there with Lemaire in NJ's history

Gee.....Thanks NHL for waiting a billion years before deciding "Oh! Wasn't there that Pat sajak...oh wait...uhh...Patrick Elia...no...Mr. Burns from the Simp...no....oh right! PAT BURNS that should be inducted into the Hall of Fame? Let's do that because as members of the Hockey Hall Of Fame, WE CARE."

Stupid idiotic pieces of bullcrap.....couldn't induct him while he was alive.....hope they all get diarrhea.

I don't wanna spend too much time talking about this in this thread, but it always pissed me off that he was passed over. He was passed over, but players like Pavel Bure got in, what a joke.


Congrats to Pat and it's well deserved and well past time.

It's unforgivable that they didn't induct him when they knew he was dying.

I'm happy for his family and everyone who was close to him, but he fought cancer for years and there was plenty of time to get this right. Everyone, EVERYONE said so at the time. For them to let the opportunity go irretrievably by, arrogantly take their sweet time and induct him on THEIR timetable is disgraceful and disgusting.

they should have probably expedited things to get him in before he passed, but to be honest he went through the ballot system about as long as he should have.

Three years too late, but still very happy and proud. What an incredible coach he was.

What's aggravating isn't the players that got inducted the past few years, that's irrelevant, a separate category. But to induct a ****ing owner in 2010, then NO ONE AT ALL in 2011 and 2012, and now, all of a sudden, he's worthy? *******s
