The list of the best and worst trades for the Quebec Bulldogs/Hamilton Tigers is a little bit like our article on the best and worst trades for the original Ottawa Senators. We’ve had to combine the two lists into one article, because there just aren’t that many trades.
For these two lists, we will be focusing only on NHL trades, even though the franchise was founded in 1878. And we will be relying on Point Shares as our metric. For an explanation, please see our original list, the 25 Best Trades in Toronto Maple Leafs history.

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.)

Herb Gardiner may have been one of the premier defencemen of his era, and was awarded the Hart Trophy as a result.
But how good was he really? Can we even know? How do we evaluate defencemen from the 1920s who didn’t score a lot? Can we trust Hart trophy wins from the past when we know they sometimes awarded them for controversial reasons?
