While out east, Gerard, Cleghorn, Boucher, Joe Hall and possibly others were better.
Lloyd Cook was more like the Bill White of his era, one of the best for 5+ years, but never the best. I liken him to Teppo Numminen with better grit, mobility and leadership. In the ATD, he's a mid-low end #4, elite #5.
Edit: But Numminen had a better shot.
