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".
Yeah, but a 6'3" 230 pound Eddie Shore doing some dirty work on a star player takes quite the man to do work on in return. I bet there were bigger players then Shore back then, how did they do when challenging him for something he did? Important becouse that perhaps tells us something about how later tough guys would affect his dirty play in the ATD format, and if you were in fact instead talking about his ability to control the game physically please excuse me, but i think 63 230 pounds is nothing to scuff at there either really.
