Post WWII had a very restrictive meaning here -- think from end of WWII to Durnan's retirement (a bit arbitrary -- it's just so we can keep a group together)

Lumley had the benefit of playing with what should be considered the best D of the league by then, unless we all admit we screwed up with Jack Stewart/Bill Quackenbush in the Top-60 D-Men list.

Rollins had better numbers than Lumley in Chicago.
