Also, I don't know whether to laugh or facepalm at the "same cinch as a colored boy grabbing the tail of a bear" comment.
I read it as a comment on Lehman's quality as a goaltender. It says more about Vezina, IMO. The writer is familiar with Vezina and considers him the standard to which an unfamiliar Western star should be compared.

As to the other comment - times have changed eh? Just a pop culture reference at the time but it's jarring to read now.
