Stratford Streak Morenz
 
Just how good was he? and what did he do well?

Daughter married Boom Boom Geoffrion

Wasnt there a bio on Morenz? Mitchell or Stratford?

Greatest player of pre 1950.


Linemate was Joliat - 1985 Greatest Habs game (do you remember his skating and falling all over the ice and Rocket v. Harvey and Plante)

All I can say is that I've heard from my father that he was truly the best goal scorer after Joe Malone and before Rocket. And that's something!

Can you also include his actual stats Hockey Outsider? It helps to have the originals when looking at adjusted stats.
