A 70-goal scorer hall of famer that won scoring titles and MVPs, a tough first-line 50-goal scorer, and a solid second-line center, for a 20-goal scorer, 4th defenceman and a minor leaguer. They were integral parts of Boston's first Cup wins in decades.
Imagine Chicago with Bobby Hull, Dennis Hull, Mikita, Espo, Hodge, Stanfield, Pappin, Nesterenko, and Maki from 1968-73.....
That was terrible trade....but Pit Martin was decent playoff performer for the Hawks. I can remember disliking the guy in several playoff series we had with the Hawks back in late '60s-early 70s.
