Wasn't he considered the best goalie "out West," which would include the WCHL? When the former President of the Regina WCHL team was lavishing praise on Charlie Gardiner in the press, "even better than Hugh Lehman" was the phrase he used. Not a WCHL goalie, Hugh Lehman
Hugh Lehman had played in Saskatchewan while Charlie Gardiner had played JR and SR hockey in Manitoba. We are looking at visible or familiar comparibles for the local hockey fans as opposed to absolute comparables across the hockey world as it was.
