NHL's Greatest Players - 1936 Edition

This is the March 14, 1936 edition of Liberty magazine. It features a generic Montreal Maroons player on the cover. 

I'm going to pretend it is Cy Wentworth because the Maroons captain was joined by Clem Loughlin (Chicago Black Hawks), Red Dutton (New York Americans), Sylvio Mantha (Montreal Canadiens), Frank Patrick (Boston Bruins), Hap Day (Toronto Maple Leafs), Doug Young (Detroit Red Wings), and Bill Cook (New York Rangers) as distinguished panelists decide who are the best players in hockey.

Here's who they came up with:

Goaltender: Tiny Thompson of the Boston Bruins.

Defense: Eddie Shore of the Boston Bruins and Ching Johnson of the New York Rangers

Center: Frank Boucher of the New York Rangers

Left Wing: Paul Thompson of the Chicago Black Hawks or Busher Jackson of the Toronto Maple Leafs. They should have used a shoot out to decide ties.

Right Wing: Charlie Conacher of the Toronto Maple Leafs.

Oh yeah, here's a look at Cy Wentworth.
