I've only been visiting this site for a few months, but I can already say that I'm in awe of the knowledge of the historians on these boards. I'm greatly interested in historic hockey and have learned so much on this site, although there is one topic I can't seem to find much information on: the pre 1926 early era. Being the early era, It's only natural that it's the least talked about, but I was wondering for a long time what would be the best all time team for this era. I know of the greatest players like Cyclone, Newsy, Malone, Cleghorn, Benedict etc. but I want to know how the historians on this site would place them on a roster, and how guys like Frank McGee, Joe Hall, and Lester Patrick would fit into the mix (if at all). So my question to you is to make a full all time team for this era and maybe some honorable mentions. Any players in any leagues of the era are applicable. Also if possible note some intangibles and accolades for the players to prove your judgment. I feel that this era gets unfairly overlooked by many fans, and I would love to see people's opinions on this subject. Thank you.
