That this issue extended across international borders is not surprising. Certain similarities exist presently.
Indeed. The IIHF/LIHG didn't have any rule against players leaving a country in the off-season while under CAHA regulation players needed a permission to do that.

Residency rules were more involved and exist in the C.A.H.A. to date precluding players from picking advantageous situations.

At the youth level gets very involved where you have joint custody or situations where a youngster goes to live with a grandparent etc.

^^^ Interesting that on average 2 pairs in the 30's, whereas today I believe the average is 2-4 pairs (some players considerably more). Relatively new system out called QuikBlade, interchangeable blades, put together by former NHL'r Rick Hampton who played for the St.Catharines Blackhawks, Seals, Barons & Kings back in the day, AHL & in Europe etc (www.quikblade.com). Not sure if being used by pro's as of yet... I also noted that they referred to the use of "electrical tape" to wrap sticks. Surely not? Not what we know of as "electrical tape". The thin shiny stuff made of vinyl that expands & is quite soft, easily damaged, useless really to be taping a stick with. Likely many of us having tried it when regular hockey tape wasnt available. The blade top & bottom just slicing through it really. Theyd have used a cotton coated tape surely. I dont think Ive ever seen an early hockey stick taped in vinyl.

Season Length

^^^Still 2 pairs of skates in a 48 game schedule adjusts to roughly 3.5 in an 82 game season. Not much change over close to 80 seasons.

Your absolutely correct, didnt take that into consideration. Shorter season back then, much shorter. So while the technological advances are fairly substantial in terms of design, material & kinetics, life-span app the same.

Januarary 1937 NHL Governors Meeting

Rather interestin for two reasons found towards the bottom.

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...6664%2C1591713

Clarification of the "kicking the puck" rule was made after a protest by Conn Smythe.

Also we learn about the provenance of the end of period green lights that are lit next to the goal light when the siren, buzzer, horn, bells, etc sound.

Very interesting. Some serious enmities between the Leafs & Maroons, Smythe & Gorman..... Now, I was aware of the fact that Smythewould roam around the building during games, but what was he doing down there in the Penalty Box area? Very provocative, stirring the pot, inserting himself if only with his mouth into the fray of things.

1937-38 International Intercollegiate Hockey League

1937-38 International Intercollegiate Hockey League featured eight teams.
Canadian teams were McGill University, University of Montréal, Queen's University, University of Toronto. American teams were Dartmounth, Harvard, Yale and Princeton.

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...g=6621%2C74353

Standings as February 1, 1938

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...g=5194%2C82153

scroll down a bit.

Addition. The league was first discussed in the first half of the 1920s but movement was slow.Finally in December of 1933 it gained traction with an opening projected for 1934.

Ya that is edifying & rather hilarious. Seems some 40+ Canadian Sailors seated in a particular corner of the rink were going absolutely nuts over the beyond amateur officiating. Spreading like a virus through the arena. Incredible really that the IIHF would be sending in a couple of guys like that to officiate ata level theyd never experienced before, one of them it sounds like a total Ankle Bender barely able to keep up.

January 3, 1939, Injuries

Marc T. McNeil in his Casual Close-ups columns looks briefly at injuries in the NHL. No mention of concussions although they had been recognized and referred to in reports previously:

January 5, 1940 Shore vs the Bruins

Eddie Shore bought the Springfield team for $50,000 for the start of the 1939-40 season. But he was still Under contract to play for the Boston Bruins.

Shore wanted to play for Springfield but the Bruins would not allow the request. A look at the story in Marc T. McNeil's column Casual Close-ups:

^^^ Very interesting full story about Shores purchase of the Indians & difficulties with Ross, Adams & the NHL in Hiams book Eddie Shore and That Old Time Hockey.... a lot of background in fact, and the author of the article linked above doesnt quite get the right end of the stick on it... The league, Adams & Ross were incensed that Shore had bought a team in fact, Shore beyond annoyed that Ross & Adams wouldnt discharge him from his Contract. Earlier that year in the Spring after winning the Cup, he skated directly off the ice & refused to go back out & accept it from Calder until a team mate went in & convinced him to do so as the Bruins fans were threatening to riot if he didnt get back out there & accept the Mug on behalf of the team & city....

Guess I'll end it there, spoil the story otherwise for those who havent read the book.

December 5, 1933. Mid Season Rule Changes

Well into the thirties the NHL had a habit of making mid - season rule changes. The following touched the dimensions of the crease, handling of the puck by skaters and abuse of on ice officials.

A bit of a reversal as senior teams in the Maritimes raided Senior teams in Ontario and Manitoba for players. Usually the opposite happened.

December 13 - 15, 1934, Start of the International Intercollegiate Hockey League

League finally starts after years of planning and discussion. Game 1 Yale at McGill played at The Forum. Rosters published:

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...5403%2C1618925

Yale features only American born players while McGill, has an American import, its captain from Berkely Ca, who had his formative hockey training in China.

Game day preview. Highlites the playing rule différences - none but the roster rules are quite different. Yale allowed to use 15 players. McGill limited to 10.

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...6646%2C1770545

Game story;

McGill won 5 - 1, weak goaltending did not help Yale:

December 4, 1934 Semi Circular Bluelines

Suggested by Frank Boucher as an alternative to the offside problem that arose after the 1929 modification of the forward pass rule. Theory was that offsides that resulted would be reduced by a semi circular blueline.

http://news.google.com/newspapers?id...=6902%2C419774

Also addressed the dumping of the puck issue which eventually saw the introduction of the various icing rules.
