Jean-Guy Talbot played the full 1961-62 season, replacing Doug Harvey on the left point on the PP. Talbot had a career year. johnson and J.C, Tremblay were next in line, Then Fontinato and MacNeil rotated thru the 4th and 5th spot. Gauthier played 12 games. Fontinato was injured for 16 games.

McSorley started out as a forward.Orlando was always a defenseman. Even without WWII Orlando was not getting back into the USA.
