Worsley was a valuable asset playing for Toe Blake but a character during the rest of his career.

Tiny Thompson won the last pre forward pass SC in Boston but as the game passed by Art Ross and the Bruins his performance lagged.

Tommy Gorman coached - Worters Hart in 1928-29, Gardiner SC in 1934, Connell - SC in 1935, as GM signed Bill Durnan. Knew how to build a team around a goalie.
In re Hainsworth : Don't you think being 38 years old kindof explains why he stopped winning? The Leafs had a pretty good team when he was there...
