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

From: http://wwwrealitycheckeyesontheprize...1_archive.html
Syd Howe's (2-3-5) name is spelled "Sid" on the Cup, he later changed his name to "Syd".
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.
