Vickers was very tough but he was hard to goad into a fight. Kind of like Graves he scored most of his goals around the crease area.

Harris didn't fight a lot either. He was on the small side but very stocky. He was a big hitter too.

Butler was young and rambunctious.

I liked Rousseau a lot. A very underrated player. At that time he was nearing the end. He and Park were our main point men. He was like Fred Stanfield of the Bruins--another forward who was very reliable playing point on the pwp.

Sacharuk had a huge shot. He slapped one from center ice once and it cracked the goalie's mask. Not a good player though. Egers had two or three go arounds with us but never really could stick. Tommy Williams was another one like that.

Maybe the toughest Ranger back then was Bert Wilson.
