Dennis was originally nominated by Ron Buccanero, who has since passed. The fact that a guy like Ron thought Dennis belonged in the HOF is a strong endorsement. Dennis has had some great averages, including a .686 league average just a few seasons ago. There are only a handful of shooters to ever hit that high in a season. Dennis has also had multiple seasons over .600 and a lifetime of solid averages. The fact that he takes a step when he shoots shows that he figured out what works best for him, since not many do it that way. He definately deserves to be in the HOF in my opinion.
