Shorty Green is in the Hall of Fame for a very specific thing, for being one of the leaders of the first ever NHL players strike.
But he’s in the Hall as a player, so how does his career stack up?
In this episode we discuss his actual hockey career. (And, to be clear, we strongly believe he belongs in the Hall of Fame for what he did off the ice.)
