100% deserves to be in the Hall.
3 Jack Adams trophies with 3 different teams in the 1st year with each team.
First year with the Habs: Team finishes with 115 points and goes to the Stanley Cup Finals
First year with the Leafs: Takes over a team with 67 points the year before and leads them one game short of the Stanley Cup Finals
First year with the Bruins: Takes over the worst team in the league (drafted Joe Thornton 1st overall) and the Bruins make the playoffs and remember Thornton was a non-factor his rookie year.
First year with the Devils: Devils win the Cup
His winning Percentage has to be up there at the top in the post-expansion era.
Joe Thornton has been a non-factor his entire career.
PS I agree with Burns going to the HOF
