Have to take some issue with the above considering they are totally different eras. I mean, we're talking it took 8 or 9 games in the playoffs to win the Stanley Cup and the guy was born in 1896 and played 40+ game regular seasons in the 1930's. Not quite sure how you can even definitively say the above considering I highly doubt you're in your 80's or 90's and saw Cook play.
To me, the greatest travesty of the Rangers ever was how they handled Leetch at the end of the road. Troubles me to this day.
