Ross was also a much better defensive player than Larson. One-dimensional guys like Larson are rarely elected into the HHOF. I admittedly know nothing about Art Ross. He could be the best offensive defenseman pre-1920 and I'd have no idea because I don't know anything about his competition. His goal totals in the NHA look good for a defenseman, but I don't know anything about defensemen in the NHA and scoring. I couldn't name another defenseman that ever played in the NHA off the top of my head, and would not have been able to name one before reading Art Ross' bio. It's the era that I know by far the least about. I know even less about defensemen from pre-1920.
