    Stewart is right for 13, Shore is right for 4.

    A clarification on 15 - I messed up, I was only looking at Cup finals since the league took over the Cup. The Boucher's played against each other prior to that. So this player was half of the first pair of brothers to play against each other for the Cup in the NHL. My bad.

    14. still cracks me up. Poor Park. In any other era he would have won the Norris at least once. Plus, he never won a cup either. How unfortunate.

    1927 was the first year that the NHL took over. Only NHL teams contested from that year on.

    Nels Stewart wins the Hart in his first year without being named rookie-of-the-year?....  that's because the Calder only started being awarded years later....

    THANX RED, all that time i spent checking both winners lists was for nothing....

    kudos to the one who picked up on it....

    #1 I recall the color commentary where they were saying that when someone was traded to the Bruins he ended up playing more than the 81 games.  It was Bill Guerin who played 64 for the Oil and 21 for the Bruins in 2000-01

    #2 Ray Bourque with most career overtime assists, and it was broken again by Messier (?)

    The Bourque one is right, but the record was both all-star appearances and all-star assists (happened in the same game) the all-star assists was later broken by Sakic. And number one pulled off that feat before Guerin was even born.

    It happened before then. Big hint - it happened in Boston's first Cup win. Another big hint in case you haven't noticed the theme of this yet. Every answer is a member of the HHOF, hence my use of the word "Legends"

    Some hints, I've been thinking and searching for hours.

    Confirmation:  All are NHL HHOFers?


    1. He was the first player to play more NHL games in a season than were scheduled.
    Was the reason because of a trade?
    You do mean that he played more games in a season than were scheduled for a single season for one team?


    5. Outside of the NHL his hockey accomplishments include three Allan Cups and two trips to the Olympics.

    Before or after Canada stopped participating?


    7. He asked to be traded, and was, after the Bruins GM at the time resigned.

    Was Lynn Patrick the only GM to resign?

    Leo Boivin after Lynn Patrick resigned (?)

     

    12. After his playing career he would coach various teams to a total of 11 Ivy League Championships.

    Ivy League?  Are you sure?

    Fernie Flaman is the only former Bruin that coached for a long time in college.



    18. Prior to joining the Bruins he led the WCHL in scoring for four consecutive seasons.

    Duke Keats?  Harvey Oliver?  These are the only 2 Boston Bruins HHOFers I found that played in the WCHL, but neither won the scoeing title.

    #12 is Bill Quackenbush.  Princeton Men's Golf (8) and Women's Ice Hockey (3).  I was convinced it was  Ralph "Cooney" Weiland but he only coached 9 champion hockey teams for the Crimson. (and 1 Bruins Stanley Cup)

    Red, nice 20 btw

    re: Oliver, hockey db has the Calgary Tigers in the WHL (from the WCHL) in Oliver's final year there.   OK, maybe just a technicality there, but I see Bill Cook with 42 pts in 25-26 for the Sheiks.

    18. I'll check it again. But my intended answer was Oliver.

    1. It happened in the 1920's

    5. He was a Kitchner Kid.

    7. I messed up. It was when the coach resigned, not the GM />

    5 is Bobby Bauer.  Trick question - both the Allan Cups and the Olympic participation were as a coach, not a player.

    I'm assuming #1 is also a bit of a trick.  I did a bit of looking at players involved in Bruins trades in the 20s, then went back thinking it might be a guy like Sprague Cleghorn before he joined the Bruins - but I couldn't find a single player who fulfilled the criteria in the 1920s.

    Hockey db only lists Bauer as a coach for 1 season with Kitchener.
