38315RE: [hockhist] youngest players in NHL
- Mar 1, 2003I have no dates for these people, but just want to point out that
although TH does have errors, it is remarkably accurate considering the
amount of data it has. And some of the really old stuff (not these guys)
is very hard to find. I research players from the 20s and 30s, and
they're vital stats can be VERY hard to find. TH isn't all that bad.

I've never been a fan of Total Hockey because of all the mistakes made
In some of my older Hockey Registers put out by Sporting news, the birth
dates are as follows:
Tom Williams 2-7-51
Dave Kryskow 12-25-1951
Dave Hrechkosy 11-1-1951
