I haven't read that whole thing yet but they needed a fact-checker. In reference to Wilson playing for the Monarchs in 1910/11 and 11/12 it says that "The Monarchs were the elite Winnipeg team at the time..." But 1910/11 was their first year in senior hockey, and they went 0-5-0 that season. In 1911/12 the Monarchs were 1-7-0. I would suggest that one win in 13 games (all against other Winnipeg teams) means the Monarchs were certainly not the elite Winnipeg team at the time.
