F&f's comments[edit]

Here are my detailed comments on the lead and section 1. Please be aware that they have been written in a hurry.

Thanks for the comments. They've all been addressed. Kaiser matias (talk) 00:39, 16 October 2009 (UTC)
One more correction:
  • In Montreal, Morenz began explaining his reasons for not signing to Dandurand but began crying.
    • Should the "but" be "and?" Fowler&fowler«Talk» 22:18, 18 October 2009 (UTC)
      • What happened was he was talking, and then broke down and couldn't finish what he was saying. I added that into the article, so this is all cleared up. Kaiser matias (talk) 04:41, 19 October 2009 (UTC)

1921 Memorial Cup[edit]

Hi, in the "Early career" part, the article says "While Morenz scored a hat trick (three goals) in each of the two games in the series, the Midgets lost the total-goals series 11–9." This can not be correct. The Midgets lost the first game with 2 goals to 9, so Morenz can not have scored a hat trick in both games. He did score a hat trick in the second game tho, but not in the first. --[GoAvs][Disc.] 17:23, 24 May 2011 (UTC)

Interesting point. I'll check out the book that I got the source from in the next few days, when I can get hold of it, so I'll remove that part. Kaiser matias (talk) 00:59, 25 May 2011 (UTC)
Thank you. By the way, I figure you're the main author of this article, so I want to say congratulations, good job! I was working on my 1921 Memorial Cup article at the german language Wikipedia when I detected that error.
Background: Just a few weeks ago I did a translation of this Morenz article for the german language wikipedia. Howie Morenz will candidate for "good article" at "our" wikipedia soon, please wish me luck. Anyway, as I was editing the Memorial Cup article, I figured something can not be correct, as I was sure that Morenz scored two hat tricks in this series. At least that's what I "copied" from the english language wikipedia. So I did a quick Google research and figured that Morenz can in no way have scored two hat tricks that year. So I quickly edited the text in "my" Morenz article and thought it'd be a good idea to inform the authors over here about the mistake.
By the way: I uploaded a few more pictures featuring Morenz, you can see them at "my" german article. Feel free to add them to your article aswell. For example, the funeral in the Montréal Forum picture might be a good addition to this article. The pic when the habs played against the Rangers is very nice aswell. Just a hint. :) Greetings, (and sorry for any misspelling) --[GoAvs][Disc.] 23:07, 25 May 2011 (UTC)

Cause of death[edit]

I do wonder if a pulmonary embolism (PE) could have been the cause of death. Does anyone know if an autopsy was performed? Bone fractures and being immobile are risk factors for deep vein thrombosis (a bloot clot in the large veins, in this theoretical case, of the leg). If the clot formed in the leg and broke off, it could have traveled to the lungs (become a PE), which can cause chest pain and death.
