Rousseau was a complementary top line player during these three seasons, scoring primarily at ES and receiving little PP time. Beliveau and Tremblay were his primary linemates in his first two full seasons, and then Richard and Tremblay in his third season.

Rousseau played the point on the PP for Montreal during this time period, and was their leading PP scorer. At ES he was also among their top scorers, but not to the degree he was on the PP. He played with several linemates, Dick Duff being the most common.

J.C. Tremblay took a bigger role on the PP, reducing Rousseau's role there. Montreal had very balanced lines and roles for these seasons among their forwards and Rousseau scored as much as anyone.

Rousseau was a total PP specialist in New York, leading the Rangers in PP points for his time there and finishing 12th in ES points. He played with many different players at ES in a limited role, and manned the blueline with Brad Park on the PP.
Great work here overpass. But to get a more accurate picture, I've added a column of games played in each table to put everything in perspective.

Edit: I've also added ESPPG
