unusual circumstances, but in '57...
, age 31, had just led the NHL in assists, finished 2nd in scoring, and had his career high in points. he was named 1st AS for the 8th time. his line with Ullman and Howe had just set a new record for points by a line in a season.
, age 25, was in the middle of a streak of 502 consecutive starts. he had just been voted 1st AS and had been 2nd AS in his rookie season ('56) and won the calder.
DRW finished 1st in the regular season.
Jack Adams traded Hall and Lindsay to Chicago for:
, age 28, a good 2nd liner. Wilson was traded 2 years later for Barry Cullen, who played only 55 more games.
, age 22, a checking C who played 168 games for DRW before being traded for Andre Pronovost.
, age 24, a backup goalie.
after the trade, DRW were not above .500 for 5 seasons.
since Hall was gone and Bassen was not good enough to be a starter, DRW needed a goalie.
they traded some cash and 22 year old Johnny Bucyk for Terry Sawchuk.
