At that point, Lumley had played 7 full seasons in the NHL, and Al Rollins had played 1.5 full seasons.

Toronto obviously expected Lumley to be a significant improvement over Rollins.
Which tells me that he must have been playing damn good (and wasn't mediocre as you stated) for Toronto to have given up so much.
