PostSubject: head of the selection committee   Wed Aug 17, 2011 7:17 am

Conn Smythe served as the Hall's chairman for several years, but resigned in June 1971 when Harvey "Busher" Jackson was posthumously elected into the Hall. Smythe said that it made him sick to think of Jackson alongside such Toronto Maple Leafs players as "Apps, Primeau, Conacher, Clancy and Kennedy. If the standards are going to be lowered I'll get out as chairman of the board."[56] Jackson was notorious for his off-ice lifestyle of drinking and broken marriages.[57] Smythe would not condone the induction and even tried to block it because he considered Jackson a poor role model.[58] Frank J. Selke, head of the selection committee defended the selection on the belief that a man should not be shut out "because of the amount of beer he drank."[59]

On March 30, 1993, it was announced that Gil Stein, who at the time was the president of the National Hockey League, would be inducted into the Hall of Fame.
