Some random facts about Art Coulter:

He captained the Rangers to a cup in 1940, one of only three players to do that (Messier and Bill Cook are the other two). He was the anchor for our innovative PK, which in 1939 outscored the opponents PP by something like 2 to 1. He was also a very generous tipper-- the Rangers appointed cab captains on road trips and reimbursed them. When Lester Patrick asked how much each cab captain was owed, he got responses from $6 to $8.75- except Coulter, who cost the team $12.75. He said since Patrick told him he was in the big leagues, he tipped like a big leaguer.
