I still think Jean Beliveau Bernie Geoffrion and Dickie Moore were the top line look at the top ten in scoring from 55-60- they are all 3 there
I think that the Hull line had Chico Maki on the right side. Stanfield was a center who didn't get much of a chance with Chicago, but excelled in Boston between Mckenzie and Bucyk.
The Habs did a lot of line juggling in the 50's. My understanding was that Moore played most of the time with the Richard brothers and Beliveau was between the Boomer and Bert Olmstead. When Olmstead left, it seems to have been Gilles Tremblay, with a lot of different players sharing time. My understanding of Semenko was that he would play on the line when 'needed', but he never played anywhere near the minutes that Kurri did. Ferguson played occasionally with Beliveau and Cournoyer in the 60's but that was just to send a message now and then.
