That's the politics of it.
Fleury has been such a rollercoaster in the media. He never really carried his team or was a leader. He put up points, but I think the politics keep him out of the HoF.
Shanahan will likely get in. If he doesn't it's because he was always the "Burrows" on his line. A contributor who made the line what it was, but ultimately ended up playing in the shadow of couple great players. I think he deserves to get in more than Fleury does, but I like what Blob says.....the Hall of Pretty Good. Bar does need to be higher.
