Franchise history

The Quebec Bulldogs, in an attempt to improve the team, left Quebec City, Quebec and went to Hamilton, Ontario and renamed the team the Hamilton Tigers. Their last season in Quebec (1919-20) was a dismal one as they finished last in the NHL with a horrible 4 wins and 20 losses in 24 games. The move to Hamilton didn't have the desired effect. From the start, it was realised that the Tigers didn't have a team that could compete so the NHL ordered the other three teams to supply players to the Tigers. Despite receiving quality players from the other teams and the signing of Joe Malone four games into the season, Hamilton still finished with the worst record at 6 wins, 18 losses, and 0 ties in 24 games. Even with Malone managing to score 30 goals in only 20 games, they couldn't climb out of the cellar. This article is on the ice hockey team. ...

The next three seasons were just as dreadful as the first one as the Tigers finished last in each of those three seasons making a total of 5 straight (counting the one season as the Bulldogs) with last place finishes. During these dreadful years, the Tigers attempted a rebuilding phase to bring the team up to par. After the 1921-22 NHL season, they had hired a new coach named Art Ross and made many player changes including trading superstar Joe Malone to the Montreal Canadiens for Bert Corbeau and Edmond Bouchard. The fans were outraged at seeing Malone leave, but felt vindicated when Malone only scored one goal in 20 games in one season for Montreal. After 4 years of futility, things started to come together in the 1923-24 NHL season with another new coach (Percy LeSueur) and the signing of four players from the Sudbury Wolves of the NOHA: Brothers Red and Shorty Green, Alex McKinnon, and Charlie Langlois. This year saw the Tigers achieve a team high of 9 wins in 24 games. It was the next season, though, that saw the results of the previous years' wheelings and dealings.

With yet another new head coach (Jimmy Gardiner) the Hamilton Tigers roared off to an impressive 10-4-1 start in the 1924-25 NHL season. Only half way through the season, they had more wins than any other season in their NHL history. The team slumped a bit in the second half of the season but still managed to finish first overall with a record of 19 wins, 10 losses, and 1 tie, just ahead of the Toronto St. Patricks. It looked like the Hamilton Tigers were going to have a chance at winning the Stanley Cup for the first time since they won it as the Quebec Bulldogs over a decade prior in 1913.

But it was not to be. While the Montreal Canadiens and Toronto St. Patricks were playing their semi-finals series to see who had the right to play the Tigers for NHL Finals, the Tigers' players went to their general manager, Percy Thompson, and demanded $200 extra pay for the 6 extra games they played that season. The NHL had increased the number of games played that year from 24 to 30, but the players didn't get more money for more games. The players' contracts stated that they were to receive the same amount of money no matter how many games were played. Despite what their contracts said, the players demanded the $200 anyway and they said that if they didn't get more money, they wouldn't play in the NHL Finals. Essentially, the players went on strike. NHL President Frank Calder was not amused. He stated that if they refused to play, he would suspend them all. The players refused to play and true to his word, the finals were cancelled, the players were all fined $200, and the league title was awarded to the Montreal Canadiens (who had beat the Toronto St. Patricks in the semi-finals). The Montreal Canadiens went on to play the Victoria Cougars for the Stanley Cup but lost. That marked the only time that an NHL team had lost the Stanley Cup to a rival league.

In the summer of 1925, a New York bootlegger named "Big Bill" Dwyer bought the Hamilton Tigers from Percy Thompson for $75,000 and swiftly relocated the team to New York and renamed it the New York Americans. The Americans were to play in the newly built 18,000 seat Madison Square Garden. All of the Tiger's players received raises in some cases as much as 200%. The New York Americans joined the league at the same time as the Pittsburgh Pirates and were the second and third teams from the United States to join the NHL (after the Boston Bruins).
