Ya, Smythe & the Leafs played the St.Mikes card quite a bit, one of the schools Priests actually doing the "recruiting", having a chat with the family, "doing whats best for the lad" type dealeo. Rather ironic really, as when Smythe himself was a boy growing up in Toronto, he had to run the Gauntlet on his way to & from school of Irish Catholic & Protestant kids, as he was really neither, his father an atheist, wee Conn there rather frail as it was getting the tar beaten out of himself before learning how to fight back & box.
