And it's definitely true that your O6 team owned your rights for life until they traded them, right?
1957-58:

Boston and Toronto went with youth - Simmons and Chadwick

Chicago opted for Glenn Hall over Lumley and Rollins.

Detroit, Montreal, New Yprk had Sawchuk, Plante and Worsley.

Boston upgraded to Lumley while Toronto brought in Johnny Bower after the season.

The only iffy move was the Rangers use of Marcel Paille. But the Rangers were cheap and poorly managed refusing to spend on depth.
