Those were my two PKing wingers last year and I had them in the order you said. Nevin's post-expansion usage that has a number on it is pretty steep.

Cecil Hart seems to have built his system somewhat around having at least one puckmoving defenseman. If I recall correctly, when he returned to Montreal, pretty much Hart's first act as general manager was to trade for Babe Siebert, who he used in this role (Mantha already being finished).

edit: it was Babe Siebert, not Reg Noble. Of course not...Noble retired even before Mantha did.
You had reason to mix up Noble FWIW, Hart paid $6,000 for him with the Maroons and then resigned from the club when management questioned him over it.
