Good find.
The exact quote is "Lionel Conacher, who played in front of Connell and Worters, could never separate this pair, but he did think they were the greatest of them all."

It's always good to find corroborating quotes, but this one by itself is really just Conacher praising his teammates, right? Conacher played in front of Charlie Gardiner for a season in 1933-34, but Connell and Worters are the only HHOFers he played in front of for more than a season, aren't they?
