Re: your comment on league strength, TDMM, how much talent did the WCHL really steal from the PCHA? My impression was that the WCHL/WHL was primarily made up of prairie stars who had previously been amateurs, and it represented a step forward in the quality of pro hockey vs amateur hockey. Stars like Duke Keats, Joe Simpson, and the Cook brothers all came out of prairie senior hockey. Western pro hockey competition was strengthened rather than diluted by the new league.
