    Ultimate Hockey's All-Star Team of the 1930s

    Ultimate Hockey's Best Offensive Defenseman of the 1930s
    Ultimate Hockey's Best On-Ice Instincts of the 1930s
    Ultimate Hockey's Toughest Player of the 1930s
    Ultimate Hockey's Most Hated Player of the 1930s
    Ultimate Hockey's Biggest Flake of the 1930s






    Pre-1931 Record:
    1926: 4th in consolidated scoring among defensemen
    Sprague Cleghorn was Hart Trophy runner-up. King Clancy and Lionel Conacher received strong Hart voting, and Reg Noble received some.
    Shore was voted to the WHL's First All-Star Team, along with Bob Trapp.
    I think it's fair to say a 5th in all-Star voting would be a conservative assumption.

    1927: 2nd in scoring among defensemen
    Herb Gardiner, King Clancy, Dunc Munro, and Georges Boucher reveived Hart votes, and Shore did not.
    I think it's fair to say a 5th in all-star voting would be fair.

    1928: T-1st in scoring among defensemen
    Shore was 3rd in Hart voting, far ahead of the only other defenseman to receive votes - Ching Johnson.
    Shore was selected to the GM's First Team.
    I think it's fair to say a 1st in all-star voting would be fair.

    1929: 1st in scoring among defensemen
    Shore was 3rd in Hart voting, barely edging out Sylvio Mantha and King Clancy.
    Shore was selected to the GM's First Team.
    I think it's fair to say a 1st in all-star voting would be fair.

    1930: 2nd in scoring among defensemen
    Lionel Hitchman and King Clancy received Hart votes, and Shore did not.
    I think it's far to say a 4th in all-star voting would be fair.

    That's 5 seasons that Shore missed out on likely all-star recognition, which is pretty considerable. His "uncounted" finishes - 1st, 1st, 4th, 5th, 5th - on their own, are probably worthy of being a top pairing defenseman.

    Final Result:
    1st(1928), 1st(1929), 1st(1931), 1st(1932), 1st(1933), 1st(1935), 1st(1936), 1st(1938), 1st(1939), 4th(1930), 4th(1934), 5th(1926), 5th(1927)

    Best 6 Seasons: 571

    The War Years:
    1943: Apps left mid-season to serve in World War II. He was on pace to finish 4th in league scoring, which would have given him a vs.X score of 96.0. Looking at just PPG, he was 4th and 93% of 2nd.

    1946: Apps came back from service midway through the season. He was on pace to finish 3rd, and a vs.X score of 96.0 ... But Doug Bentley was on a better pace, so Apps drops to 4th and 91.0. Looking at just PPG, he was 5th and 83%. (Mosienko was 4th in PPG, but missed time to an actual injury rather than missing time to WW2)

    1944 and 1945: I think it's fair to give him some kind of score for these seasons. I am going to take his 3 years before the war and the 3 years after the war to get his average production before and after the war.

    1941 - 100
    1942 - 76
    1943 - 96 (adjusted above)
    1946 - 91 (adjusted above)
    1947 - 78
    1948 - 88

    528 / 6 = 88

    New vs.X scores - 114(1938), 100(1937), 100(1941), 96(1943), 91(1939), 91(1946), 88(1944), 88(1945), 88(1948), 78(1947), 76(1942), 70(1940)

    7 season average = 97.1

    That actually puts him 0.1 points above his contemporary, Bill Cowley, which I think passes the smell test. From 1937 to 1942, Apps scored 250 points to Cowley 246.​

    Bill Cowley, C

    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]
    • 1st Team All Star (1938, 1941, 1943, 1944)
    • 2nd Team All Star (1945)
    • "3rd Team All Star" (1940)
    • Hart Trophy Winner (1941, 1943)
    • Stanley Cup (1939, 1941)
    • Led the playoffs in scoring and was awarded the "Retroactive Conn Smythe" (1939)
    • Points finishes: 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 4th*, 5th, 7th*, 8th
    • Goals finishes: 5th, 8th*, 9th*, 10th, 10th
    • Assist finishes: 1st, 1st, 1st, 2nd*, 3rd, 5th*, 6th, 7th
    • In 1940-41, Cowley became the first player to score enough assists to win the scoring title based on assists alone (he was also 10th in goals). Wayne Gretzky would be the next (and only other) player to accomplish this feat in the NHL.
    *1944 and 1945 War years

    Statistical analysis

    Bill Cowley ranks 19th overall and 10th among centers in 7 year VsX (which already discounts the war years):

    The Best playmaker of his era

    The Calgary Herald - Google News Archive Search

    I'm sure the "dash of Nighbor" was referring to Cowley's playmaking, not his, um "spotless" record at backchecking.

    Best 6 Seasons: 548


    The War Years:
    Roy Conacher missed 1943, 1944, and 1945 due to military service. He also missed almost all of 1946.

    The same as Syl Apps, I think it' fair to use the 3 years immediately before and after the missed time is a fair benchmark. 1949 seems to be an outlier season for Conacher, so I think it's probably fair to ignore it.

    1940 = 70
    1941 = 89
    1942 = 69
    1947 = 86
    1948 = 82

    5 season Average = 79.2

    That 79.2 would only replace the 7th best season for vs. X, and give him a slight increase from 89.1 to 89.6. Those 4 missed seasons seem to add more to his "longevity" than his actual peak.​

    Cyclone Taylor - D/Rover/C

    Career timeline

    Taylor broke into "professional" hockey it seems as a center or rover but in the ECHA and NHA was moved to cover point due to his tremendous speed. The rules of the time would definitely benefit a rushing defenceman as a playmaker so it's a logical fit.

    The Globe - 17 Apr 1936

    Why does he maintain eligibility as a defenceman?

    1907-08 - ECAHA - Ottawa Senators - 2nd in scoring as a defenceman
    1908-09 - ECHA - Ottawa Senators - 3rd in scoring as a defenceman
    1909-10 - NHA - Renfrew Creamery Kings - 2nd in scoring as a defenceman (Behind teammate Lester Patrick who was mostly a Rover)
    1910-11 - NHA - Renfrew Creamery Kings - 2nd (?) in scoring as defenceman (I can't find who was ahead of him)

    Additionally the issue of the role of the rover in 7 man hockey and how it would translate to the modern 6 man hockey. This section contains some commentary found on the HOH about the role of a rover, and an old article written by Ian Fyfe showcasing the shift in a rovers role in team offence and defence.

    Courtesy of @tarheelhockey - Saskatoon Phoenix 12/10/1919

    Ian Fyfe's article "The Changing Role of the Rover" - I've lost the link but I saved a copy of the text to work

    First evidence of Taylor making the switch to (Cover)Point is given below from 1907. As far as I can tell based on the results of my review, Taylor was consistently played at point or cover-point regardless of who was on the team with him. When playing with the Patrick's for their lone season as a trio in Renfrew, Lester was the usual rover for the squad while Taylor would play cover.

    Taylor has 4 seasons in what was typically considered the best of close to best leagues in the world at the position of cover. He was a top 2/3 scorer from the positions typically considered defence, and maybe the top scorer considering Lester Patrick played multiple games at Rover and not point/cover.

    When coming to the PCHA he played at rover until 1917-18 when for reasons that are still unknown as Ian Fyfe document, the rover position faced a change that happened across the league. The rover became a third defenceman and the more offensively gifted players at rover where moved to other forward positions. This was when Mackay became the primary rover for the Millionaires.

    Based on the article above about the role of the rover posted by tarheelhockey, the rover position was the keystone of the offence in PCHA hockey until 1917-18 and it would make sense to play Taylor at this position as he was the most skilled player the Millionaires had. Additionally the roster of the Millionaires featured Si Griffis and at time Frank Patrick, players that were commonly played at point and cover and perhaps coach Patrick didn't view them as worth for playing the rover position. This is pure conjecture, but based on the description of the rover from the previous article, the centers relied upon the rover's to due the bulk of the back checking. Considering that Mackay was mostly a center until 1917/18 I'm unsure of what to make of this development.

    Taylor has 4/5 seasons at the position of cover and was already anointed as the greatest hockey player most people had seen at this point, a mantle he maintained when moving to Vancouver and switching positions.

    His total offensive output may be diminished when playing defence in the ATD, but his all around ability should be considered. The bulk of the quotes regarding two way play and physicality come from his time out East at cover.

    The Move to Renfrew

    With the Patrick Brothers, Frank seems to have played Point and Lester Rover in Renfrew

    30 Dec 1909
    The Stanley cup is the ambition of millionaire owners of the Renfrew club and as Taylor's jump has left a bad hole in the Ottawa team it would not be all all surprising to see the famous trophy come to Renfrew in the spring.
    Taylor is recognized by hockey experts as the greatest player in the game.

    The Move West to the PCHA

    22 Aug 1911
    Now unless otherwise noted, source is the Edmonton Bulletin


    28 Jan 1913


    11 Feb 1913 - Ottawa Citizen:


    Statistics

    For this bio I focused more on his exploits as a cover-point out east before moving to player Rover and then Center in the PCHA. This section will have all the statistics and all star teams listed from my previous bios

    2x Stanley Cup Champion
    2x 2nd in NHA Points Among Defensemen
    2nd in ECAHA Points Among Defensemen, 06-07
    3rd in ECAHA Points Among Defensemen, 07-08
    36 points in 29 games in IHL as Forward
    5x Led PCHA in Assists
    5x Led PCHA in Points (Also led in PPG one more season having played half the season)
    3x Led PCHA in Goals
    1st all-time points in PCHA
    1st all-time assists in PCHA
    Inducted into the HHOF in 1947 (the first year they inducted still-living members)

    Now how much more dominant was he in the PCHL season by season
    Over the course of these seven seasons Taylor averaged 0.57 pts/game over his nearest teammate and 0.3838 pts/game over the nearest non teammate/league leading point scorer.

    Just for completeness Vs2 of Dreakmurs consolidated finishes though I will give him credit for the season he only player half of since 1) It was an appendicitis and not due to age or style of play and 2) because the PPG of that season was in line with his career to date.

    1913 - 2nd in Assists, 9th in Points - Score = 52.56
    1914 - 6th in Goals, 1st in Assists, 4th in Points - Score = 95.17
    1915 - 1st in Assists, 2nd in Points - Score = 100
    1916 - 2nd in Goals, 1st in Assists. 1st in Points - Score = 109.38
    1917 (Appendicitis) would be 3rd in Points = 99.65
    1918 - 1st in Goals, 2nd in Assists, 1st in Points = 134.40
    1919 - 1st in Goals, 1st in Assists, 1st in Points = 124.41

    Goals - 1, 1, 2, 6 *This is missing the appendicitis season)
    Assists - 1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2 *This is missing the appendicitis season
    Points - 1, 1, 1, 2, 3, 4, 9

    So his best 6 season total is 663.01
    Including his weak first PCHA season 715.57
    Average over 7 seasons 102.224

    From ages 28-34 is only accounted for


    Just comparing for interest sake that puts him in a offence dead heat comparing this to standard VsX with Maurice Richard and Howie Morenz


    Above the closest player to him, would be Keats but in the dishing the dirt thread it was discussed that the system incorrectly treats the WCHL, PCHA and NHL seasons equally and at the start of the WCHL it was weak inflating Keat's numbers. Taylor comes out ahead with the highest PPG beating Bill Cook by 0.23 Pts/Game. Assign whatever value you choose to these stats but it's clear that Taylor probably the most elite offensive player till Morenz.

    Hockeyreference Data
    In Stanley Cup Challenges, Taylor came to play
    1914-15 - 10 Pts in 3 Games (Age 30)
    1917-18 - 9 Pts in 5 Games (Age 33)
    1920-21 - 1 Pt in 3 Games (Age 36)

    1.818 Pts/Game after the age of 30

    Compared to "rival" Mickey MacKay
    1914-15 - 6 Pts in 3 Games (Age 20)
    1917-18 - 10 Pts in 5 Games (Age 23)
    1920-21 - 1 Pt in 5 Games (Age 26)

    1.3076 Pts/game

    Mickey MacKay was unable to even close the gap in Stanley cup challenge games over a smaller sample size that Taylor maintained in the regular season. This is even against stronger competition and with Taylor a decade older than MacKay.


    In fact the only time MacKay came even close to duplicating Taylor's scoring feats were when the PCHA was at it's weakest with the emergence of the WCHL.

    SIHR Data Overall Playoff Performance
    Cyclone Taylor - 22 Points in 16 Games - 1.375 Pts/Game
    Mickey MacKay - 33 Points in 52 Games - 0.6346 Pts/Game

    Taylor is 31 in his first recorded playoff data, and MacKay is 21. It's not even close, the gap between the two is even wider than in just Stanley Cup Games and the regular season.

    Secondary Sources

    The Globe and Mail 11 June 1979


    Excerpts from the Book, The Patricks, Hockey's Royal family discuss Taylor's star power and seem to indicate that it was significantly higher than the star power of Newsy Lalonde

    Here are some excerts from the book The Patricks: Hockey's Royal Family . Brothers Lester and Frank Patrick were the founders of the PCHA, as well as players and managers of their respective teams.

    From early in Taylor's career:
    The book then documents the Patrick's efforts at luring Taylor out west - to them, getting Taylor to join the PCHA was the key to the success of the fledgling league:

    Note that Newsy Lalonde was a member of Frank Patricks' Vancouver Millionaries for The PCHA's inaugural 1911-12 season and even led the league in scoring, but Frank was still desperate to sign Cyclone.

    From an East vs West All-Star game, when Taylor was still in the East:

    That offseason, Lalonde headed back East to Montreal, but Frank Patrick got his prize as Taylor signed with Vancouver. Taylor was to be paid $1800, the most money in hockey and $500 more than Lalonde had been paid the previous season.

    Attendance of Vancouver games skyrocketed with Taylor on the team.

    At Taylor's peak, he was a bigger star than Lalonde was at the time:

    According to Frank Patrick, Cyclone Taylor's style of play inspired them to allow forward passing in the neutral zone, the first time forward passing was ever allowed in any way in any professional hockey league:


    Tommy Gorman lists his all-time team (in December of 1928):

    Here's the HHOF profile on Taylor:

    Taylor led the PCHA in scoring 5 times and may have won it a 6th time if it weren't for his damn appendix:

    Knee Injury and Decline

    After a strong 2002-2003 campaign in which he finished 3rd in Norris voting and on the 2nd AST, Derian Hatcher moved to Detroit.Many people remember that his play deteriorated, especially that he lost the little speed he had, and this can be attributed to a knee injury.Then the lock-out happened and he was never the same.

    Recognition for defensive defensemen throughout Hatcher's prime


    Defensive defensemen were generally poorly recognized in the late-90s and early-00s.I assume 96-97 to 02-03 to be Derian Hatcher's prime.I checked which defensemen finished Top 10 in Norris voting throughout that period without scoring 40 points or more (I understand 40 is an arbitrary number, but it's just to give a general idea).

    2nd: Konstantinov (38 pts)
    5th: Stevens (24 points)

    97-98
    3rd: Pronger (36 points)
    4th: Stevens (26 points)

    98-99
    6th: Stevens (27 points)
    7th: Hatcher (30 pts)

    99-00
    6th: Chelios (34 pts)
    8th: MacInnis (39 pts)

    00-01
    3rd: Stevens (31 pts)
    (Hatcher finished 13th with 23 pts, was the next in line under 40 pts after Stevens)

    01-02
    2nd: Chelios (39 pts)
    8th: Aucoin (34 pts)

    02-03
    3rd: Hatcher (30 pts)
    7th: Chara (39 pts)
    10th: Foote (31 pts)

    Stevens, Chelios and Hatcher are the only ones to appear twice on that list, and both Stevens and Chelios had put up strong offensive numbers in the early 90s and had a strong reputation behind them, whereas Hatcher had none.I suspect Hatcher's Norris record underrates him.

    Penalty Kill Stats from overpass' spreadsheet (SH% and TmSH+)


    Derian Hatcher was a great penalty killer.Noteworthy is how good his numbers are in Philadelphia (2006,2007,2008).He was injured in 2004 and only played 15 games (the Detroit year).

    Alex Delvecchio, C/LW

    [​IMG]

    Consistent excellence
    • More top 10 finishes in NHL scoring (11) than any center but Wayne Gretzky (16) and Jean Beliveau (12). Delvecchio played with Howe most of the time, but he did exactly what you'd expect a great player to do playing with Howe - racking up the top 10 finishes. Delvecchio also got two of his top 10 finishes without Howe as his even strength linemate.
    • Played in 13 All Star Games - only Howe (23), Bourque (19), Gretzky (18), Mahovlich (15), Coffey (15), and Messier (15) played in more.
    • Retired #2 all-time behind Gordie Howe in games played, assists, and points.
    Strong playoff record
    • Delvecchio scored 1281 points in 1549 regular season games (0.83 PPG). In the playoffs, he had 104 points in 121 career playoff games (0.86 PPG), a small increase (most players see slight drops in their scoring in the playoffs).
    • As late as 1970 (Delvecchio's last playoffs), he ranked 6th All-Time in playoff scoring behind Gordie Howe and 4 members of the Montreal Canadiens (Beliveau, Rocket Richard, Geoffrion, and Moore).
    Durability - missed only 43 games in a career spanning 23 seasons

    Leadership - Red Wings captain for 12 seasons: 1962-63 - 1973-74.

    Defensive play - Delvecchio finished 4th in a 1958 poll of all 6 NHL coaches for "best defensive forward" in the NHL. This is the only such poll we have from the period.

    2nd Team All Star at both C (1952-53) and LW (1958-59). Also received a spattering of votes at both positions, sometimes in the same year, throughout the 1960s.

    Top 10 finishes:
    • 5 top 10s in Goals: 3, 7, 8, 8, 9
    • 10 top 10s in Assists: 2, 2, 4, 4, 5, 6, 6, 7, 8, 9
    • 11 top 10s in Points: 4, 5, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 10, 10
    Delvecchio finished 4th in NHL scoring in 1952-53 (his best finish!) and 8th in 1957-58 without Gordie Howe as a regular linemate, proving he could be a top 10 scorer without Howe.

    Details:
    Alex talks about how he was a rough player in junior until his coach told him to stop taking penalties:

    Trying to figure out a VsX equivalent for Reg Noble:
    According to @seventieslord , Noble's best 7 Vs1 seasons (using Vs1 because of splits leagues are:
    83 71 67 63 62 61 45

    Massive drop off after Noble's 6th best year. However, Noble was a forward for only 8 years of his 17 year career, and he did finish 1st and 2nd in scoring among defensemen in other years. So is it really fair to look at 7 years? Noble's 6 year average Vs1 score is 67.8.

    But that still probably underrates his offensive talent, as he was a pass-first player playing in an era that barely counted assists:

    Hard to know what to make of this, as it's becoming a fudge of a fudge (and is an example of why Sturminator originally never intended for VsX to be used before the 1926 consolidation), but I would estimate his "true" value to be somewhere close to a VsX score of 70-72, about halfway between Bert Olmstead (better) and Baldy Northcott (worse). (If I have time, I'll try to work an a more mathematically rigorous method of the equalization of assists).
