You read up on that rule. We got no one from it.

"From 1936-1943 Montreal protected 14 players (2 per season) through this special draft. Unfortunately none of them ever played a minute in the NHL. Reason being, anybody who could tie their skates and chew gum at the same time were already long signed by other NHL teams including the Canadiens who certainly wern't going to survive solely with this rule."
