One of them is considered an All-Time great, another is "just another pre-O6 player".
Marty Barry: 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 4th, 7th, 8th
Howie Morenz: 1st, 1st, 3rd, 3rd, 3rd, 4th, 5th, 7th, 10th, 10th
Howie Morenz: 3
Marty Barry: 0
In 1950, Morenz was chosen hockey's greatest player of previous half-century by the Canadian Press.
The votes were:
Howie Morenz 27
Maurice Richard 4*
Cyclone Taylor 3
Frank Nighbor 2
Tied with 1: Syl Apps, Turk Broda, Aurel Joliat, Newsky Lalonde, Milt Schmidt, Eddie Shore, Nels Stewart
*Only 5 years into his career
Marty Barry was better at being a Red Wing than Howie Morenz, though.
