First, it appears that Gorman coached the Ottawa Senators in the 1923-24 season, in which the team finished 1st in the regular season standings, and lost to the Habs in the NHL playoffs.

So this adds one pretty successful season to Gorman's career.
Good find. I have definitely seen Gorman get credit for coaching the Sens before, which is why I questioned Pete Green's role. That makes things a little clearer.
