Yeah, that's what I was getting at.

Not only was Quebec/Hamilton usually pretty poor, but the franchise folded 85 years ago, which essentially removes it from living memory.

All speculation, but I think there's some merit to it. Aside from a small community of history buffs like ourselves, who out there has any incentive to research the guys who played for the New York Americans or Montreal Maroons, nevermind the Bulldogs who folded 15-20 years before that.

Being the first great star of the Montreal Canadiens probably hasn't hurt Lalonde any either.
