Good find.
Yeah, it is an interesting piece certainly. I question a bit of it only because I did a good amount of research on the 1935 Finals. And the author states that the Leafs skated circles around the Maroons, but according to lengthy game summaries at the time (not 10 years later), that's not how it happened at all - excepting maybe the first two periods of game 2.

Also interesting that a manager valued Dave Kerr, Normie Smith and Alec Connell the same at one point. I've kind of wondered if we should be talking about Dave Kerr at this point, seems to have maybe gotten lost in the shuffle, no? I'm not really sure to be honest. I've never done that much research on him.
