I love some of the old newspaper quotes. While scouring for more info on Cook and Duncan (Well, more-so Cook, I have two and a half pages on Duncan.) I found these great descriptions in a Vancouver Sun Millionaires v Metropolitans game report:

Hap Holmes:
Quote:
Happy Holmes was in grand fettle, flicking the wicked rubber away as nonchalantly as Rudolph Valentine flicks the ashes off a Shiek's cigarette.
Hugh Lehman:
Quote:
As a contrast to this Hughie Lehman was dancing around like a mad magician putting on his stuff at a Maharajah's birthday party.
Mickey Mackay:
Quote:
"Mickey" Mackay was as agile as a kitten with a catnip ball.
