that is an odd coincidence.

i think elmer ferguson thought morenz was better. i remember reading something in ottawa citizen that cited ferguson's opinion on morenz and nighbor and then slightly mocked it, similar to the piece sturm cited.

ferguson wrote for montreal herald, which is not on google newspapers, so his writing is hard to find, but i have seen him cited a couple of times in ottawa citizen and montreal gazette.
