It doesn't really matter, does it? Eddie Shore was big, but not huge, fore his era.

A few drafts ago, seventieslord came up with a chart to give a rough idea of how sizes would change.

If a player was born before 1970, he would be 1 inch taller and 10 pounds heavier.
Before 1950, +2 and +20
Before 1930, +3 and +30
Before 1910, +4 and +40
Before 1890, +5 and +50

Eddie Shore was born in 1902, and was listed at 5'11" and 190 lbs. With this chart, he would land at 6'3" 230 lbs. That seems to line up well with how I described him above - "big, but not huge".
