The THN panel seems to have been very familiar with original 6 and 1970s hockey but with the exception of Milt Dunnell, probably didn't know much about hockey before 1950 or so. In other words, they were relying on simple stats and hearsay for guys like Schmidt an Boucher. It's quite obvious they didn't put work into researching players before their time.

Remember, Schmidt was GM of Boston for quite some time and his legend might have grown after retirement for that reason.
