from Michael Langlois of Vintage Leaf Memories,
The continued emergence of Ian White as perhaps the best all-around Maple Leaf defenseman evokes memories of another “under-sized” defender who had a lengthy and successful NHL career.
I’m thinking of Pat Stapleton, the long-time Chicago Black Hawk who forged an excellent career as an NHL defenseman, despite his relative lack of size. At 5 foot 8 inches, Stapleton was considered ‘short’ in his era, just as White, at 5 foot 10, is so considered today.
continued and a fairly new blog, geared towards us old-school guys…
