Rollins' Hart in 1954

Can anyone explain this Hart win to me?

Obviously, I wasn't alive at the time but how good was Rollins playing to win the Hart that year?

I know enough about hockey now to not judge a player by the stats but they are not pretty for Rollins that year.

Bassen had better stats that year. The following year, Rollins also had better stats and Ted Kennedy won the Hart in '55. So, how was Rollins' Hart year? That's a really interesting year for me.

I know it's "most valuable" but Rollins didn't seem to do all that much on paper seeing as Chicago probably still would have been terrible without him. Most Hart winners in Rollins' case seem to make their teams better (Theodore, Thornton, Lindros) or carry them into the playoffs at the very least.

So, anyone with some knowledge want give some insight?
