There have been books written on these guys and many of us have read newspaper articles from the time via google archives. We have far more than just the numbers.
By all accounts, Joe Malone was a dominant goal scorer, but really didn't contribute anything other than scoring goals.
Newsy Lalonde was comparable at scoring goals, but was also one tough SOB and a noted leader.
Cyclone Taylor was the best playmaker of the era by a wide margin.
Frank Nighbor was also an excellent playmaker and was, by all accounts, the best defensive forward to play the game before World War 2.
