Goegan's AST total is higher for his single season than Fontinato's combined so Goegan had support from a much greater voter base.As do Langlois' 1960-61 votes. Likewise for the Norris, Goegan's one season total reflects a greater voter base.

The half/half voting format inflates the actual total but has the virtue of reflecting consistency over the season.p
and if you take the seasonal totals you still get a good idea of who generally performed well over the season.

Goegan's one season of recognition was based on an unexpected and unsustainable offensive explosion.

Jean Gauthier. The Canadiens moved Turner after the 1960-61 season th create room for upcoming defensemen including Jean Gauthier. Also my 1959-60 comments did not include the promising juniors.
that wasn't a very smart move then, was it?
