    I thought tonight's HHOF ceremony was really well done. Ray Shero did a nice job tonight on behalf of his father Fred Shero who i know would be very proud . Brendon Shannahan was terrific as well, his speech was really outstanding and i could tell by the crowd it was very well received. IT was great seeing many of the old Flyers attending the ceremony !

    Mentioned in other thread, Ray did a fantastic job and spoke very well of the Flyers. Glad in 2 days can go back to hating him :). Was very impressed with him and was great to see all the Flyers there and how so many talked about that team .

    They had Bernie on the NHL Network talking about Shero & he said when he first came back to the Flyers after being brought in from Toronto the Flyers were practicing & Shero called Bernie over to the bench & told him "I know nothing about goaltending, so you're on your own". :laugh:

    That's outstanding ! If my memory serves me right, Bernie gave up like 7 or 8 goals his first game back with the Flyers........He tightened his game up shortly there after ! lol

    Good memory. Preseason game, it was 7-0 and he was pulled in the first period. I forget Shero's exact line but he said something along "He was so bad, they scored seven goals on six shots..."

    Ray's speech brought a few tears to my eyes. Brought back a lot of great memories and the story about Bernie was classic. Dam I wish Bobby Clarke could have played forever.

    This. THIS. THIS.

    Seeing that many of the 74-75 Flyers there to honour Shero is what got me. Fred was right - they have walked and continue to walk together. 40 years later, and there they are.

    The best part of his speech is that he forgot to congratulate Chelios at the beginning. :laugh:

    Ray did a great job. His dad would have been proud.

    Is was great to how Shanny mentioned that he hoped that his Wings team mates would be like the FLyers still after 40 years !

    Great speech given by Ray and all the inductees. Hats off to Snider for flying all the Flyers to Toronto for the induction. Class move.

    Great speach. You could see Clarkie tearing up a little and Bernie's reaction with the boat story was cool.
