Guess I'll start....

One thing that jumps out at me is that I think my second line will make an excellent match against St. Georges' top line. Down the middle Petrov isn't the fastest guy in the world, but he's faster than Stewart, and was quite heavy at over 200lbs (in the 70's). We all know that Gare is a fantastic defensive player, and I think a nice match against Reg Noble. And while you can never completely stop a guy like Lafleur, I at least a have a guy who can skate with him in Doug Bentley (also known as an excellent defensive winger). On top of ranging from good to great defensively, my second line has some serious offensive pop as well. On top of his Art Ross, Bentley led the NHL in goals twice, and assists twice (in 4 separate seasons). Vladimir Petrov led the Soviet League in scoring 5 times (more than anyone but Makarov). He also led the World Championships in scoring 4 times. As the lesser offensive player of the three, Danny Gare was still very impressive, twice scoring 50 and placing 1st and 5th in goal scoring while playing exclusively on a checking line. I have confidence in all of my lines to play in any situation, but i'll look to use home-ice to my advantage and try to get that matchup when possible in this series.

While I don't buy Petrov being anything more than average defensively (it wasn't until after the Summit Series that he's been said to become a more complete player), I do like that matchup against the first line.

Well, he was 25 during the Summit Series, which I think is a reasonable age to begin rounding out one's game. I'm not suggesting Petrov is a shut-down defender, but I think he was solid defensively, and his size and strength make him a solid matchup against a similar player in Stewart. At any rate, he's hardly the defensive black hole that Stewart is.

That I whole heartedly agree with. Like I said, that's a very good matchup for you in this series. Really opens up great possibilities for the first line.

Here's something I came across on Walsh recently. The Toronto Star printed profiles of the Ottawa championship team on March 21, 1911.

"Marty Walsh, centre, is the champion scorer of the National Hockey Association. Walsh is a graduate of Queen’s University, and was as an amateur one of the greatest outside wings in the Inter-Collegiate Football Union. He is 28 years old, and has been playing with the Ottawas for four seasons. Walsh, while not brilliant, is perhaps the hardest and most effective worker on the Ottawa team. He weighs 164."

What's brilliant is that damn Toronto Star. Almost worth the 150 bucks per year for access.

I wonder how easy it would be to look up some of those old articles at the Toronto Public Library. Has anyone ever tried it before? Do they have these kind of things digitized, or microfiche?

I'd imagine that there's a wealth of information out there about the early days. Same probably goes Montreal, New York, Chicago, etc.

All those old newspaper articles are all stored at their respective cities' libraries - in microfiche format. A larger library MAY be able to import some of those archives, but I seriously wouldn't count on it. In most cases, it would likely require physically going to the libraries of those cities, fully expecting to spend a weekend or so in the library just browsing the articles and taking notes.

Yeah, I'm living downtown now (Toronto), so I may make a go of it at some point this year. Probably just for an afternoon, unless I'm really digging up some gold.

Jeez, is that all it costs? That's less than I pay for the NY Times. Perhaps I should switch.
