Bobby,

I thought that Howie Morenz was the Babe Ruth of hockey. They played around the same time. Morenz was the biggest draw in hockey before Maurice Richard. He won 3 Stanley Cups with the Canadiens. What do you think?

I didn't compare Babe Ruth to anyone on purpose. I just don't think there is a hockey player that matched his bigger than life persona. Jim

Although they don't compare in pure ability, what about comparing King Clancy to Babe Ruth? Based on their overall personality that is.

When I saw the movie Rocket, I am pretty sure that someone compared him to Babe Ruth...
Although like Jim said, no one can truly match up to the persona of Ruth, except Derek Sanderson could if he was a better player.....persona wise...hehe

Looks like we're matching up goalies to pitchers.

How about Roy - Clemens?
