On the 1936 Cup team it's spelled Sid Howe because that was his name. Apparently he changed it to Syd later.

Sid Howe, right, with Wings owner Jim Norris. Howe worked as a machinist at Ford by day and played center and left wing by night.

If you do a google search alot of the older newspapers and books refer to him as Sid Howe instead of Syd Howe which makes me think the name changing thing is true.
