The only one not in the HHoF is Rollins and he won the Hart Trophy in 54.
The '77 team had to build their dynasty with thinner talent levels due to expansion.
At the same time it could be argued that since the cup winning team got the first overall draft pick back then, the Habs had the advantage and accumulated more wins due to poorly built expansion teams (Philadelphia Flyers not included).
Way too many factors to accurately compare the two dynasties.
