Their competition at the time had similar makeups of many HHOFers playing together.

How many current Maple Leafs are destined for the HHOF or can you think of any current NHL team able to say 1/2 their current team is heading to the Hockey Hall of fame?
Just to add to the HHOFers list, figured we should look up Montreal's.

Jean Beliveau
Yvan Cournoyer
Dick Duff
Jacques Laperriere
Henri Richard
Gump Worsley

Which is no list to sniff at either. Also had Rogie Vachon as their other goaltender and John Ferguson Sr of note as well.
