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

"The Stanley Cup has fallen from the Stars. The new millennium has its first Stanley Cup Champion, and it's the New Jersey Devils." Mike Miller calling the Devils winning the Stanley Cup.

"It goes to the captain and then there are handoffs during a skate around the ice" Mike Emrick as Scott Stevens is being presented the Stanley Cup.

As the group nears 15,000 members, TSN.ca has a story about the group and the movement on their front page.

Wow. It took about four days to get the first 10,000 suporters. It took less than two days to get more than 15,000 more.

This thing is really picking up steam!

They even have a poll about it on NHL.com

Sources also confirm that there is no one left in Canada who can remember when hockey was a simple game, played for fun.
