Another great name comes from the 1920s, and that would be long forgotten Hall of Famer Cooney Weiland.
1929-30 was a season for the ages for Weiland. Playing on the "Dynamite Line" with Dit Clapper and Dutch Gainor, Weiland led the Bruins to the league's best mark. In the first season that forward passing was allowed, the Bruins went 38-5-1. Much of that great result was due to Cooney's great play. He destroyed Howie Morenz's record of 51 points in a season by scoring 43 goals and 73 points in 44 games. He also led all playoff scorers in scoring, though the Bruins could not win a second consecutive championship.
Weiland would win two Stanley Cup championships as a player, and one as a coach. As good as he was on the ice, he may have been even more legendary behind the bench. While he coached for a decade at the NHL and AHL levels, he may be best known as the head coach at Harvard University. Weiland remained at Harvard for 21 years, compiling a 316-172-17 record.
