Looking at the voting results thread, and the early 50s are the only period where we don't have full All-Star results, which is unfortunate. Rollins was 4th in All Star voting in 1957 behind Hall, Plante, and Sawchuk, which is pretty impressive, even if he was pretty far behind them. That's certainly better than any of the "filler" Thomas seasons. No idea how I missed that when I was posting the All-Star results earlier.
That was his last year in the NHL too, which supports the idea that Chicago basically screwed him by sending him to the minors to make room for Glenn Hall. I'd still like to see him do better than being a 2nd Team All Star in the WCHL the following season, though.
