1957 was the last year Kelly received significant Norris consideration, and in 1960 he was traded to Toronto and permanently converted to center.
Pilote and Kelly weren't competition for Harvey at the same time.
I agree with you that Potvin wasn't quite in his regular season prime anymore (partly due to injuries) when Bourque came into the league, but he was at least getting some consideration.
You are right about Pilote. I misplaced him history but we still Gadsby, Goldham (who is underrated because he only had one stand out offensive season) and to lesser extent Morrison, Howell and Mortson. This is what I would say great depth for a 6 team league.
We also have to take the available amount of players.
