Foster Hewitt is one of Doc's biggest influences. Honestly, you could hear it too.

The stoicism of that period doesn't mean there wasn't emotion, just that it wasn't worn on your sleeve. That seems more like something that really came about post-WWII.

What interests me is how much the game of that time reminds me of soccer. Not a ton of shots, but action up and down.
