Yeah. It seems strange, because that says there is a case to draft Nighbor over Cyclone Taylor or Newsy Lalonde, which completely bucks what we know as historical canon, but... the more we research the era, the more Frank Nighbor's name appears prominently (see the piece I just posted in the dishing the dirt section for example).
