Important becouse that perhaps tells us something about how later tough guys would affect his dirty play in the ATD format.
One of my takeaways from reading the Eddie Shore book was realizing how absurd the rough treatment he received was. I'd probably be a bit of a nutter too if I had to endure that much abuse. The reputation of his toughness is well-earned and beyond reproach imo.
