Yes how did his record go? 12-47-7 or something like that? He was on a basement team. Two things don't make sense. Historically the Hart has been awarded to either the best player in the game or the most valuable player to his team (generally a good team) or a combination of both. Rollins doesn't fit in either category. He wasn't even a 2nd team all-star that year so we can assume even the voters thought Lumley and Sawchuk had a better year. Plus he did nothing to elevate the Blackhawks. Without him what happens? Does the team win 10 games instead of 12?

I guarantee that if you put Red Kelly or Howe or Richard on that team in 1954 they help that team get more than 12 wins but that's just my opinion.

Rollins' Hart win can be argued to be the worst award choice ever.
