We can debate Keats vs. Frederickson directly next round if you like. There is little doubt which was the better player.
I think you're right about your ultimate conclusion -- this said, my point was mostly about the war, and who lost more because of it.
And of course, Fredrikson played in a better league directly after the war, which has a direct influence on how those two specific players must be rated.
