Interesting storys on the 2 goalies. Harry Lumley was traded shortly after posting a 1.85GAA with several Shutouts to Chicago, replaced by Terry Sawchuk, another Wunderkind as Harry had been when playing his first NHL game at 17. Chicago eventually trading Lumley to Toronto where once again he enjoyed a great deal of success. Chuck Rayner of the Rangers won the Hart Trophy in 1950, outstanding performances through the Playoffs & against Detroit, the 7th & deciding game going into OT. Rayner, nicknamed Bonnie Prince Charlie eventually replaced by the up & coming Gump Worsley in New York. Rayner was noted for playing the puck (actually attempting to score on several occasions). Jacques Plante taking notice (in addition to it being born from necessity, though not much not new under the sun) while with the Citadelles, Royals & Bisons before sticking for good with the Habs in 53, the same year Worsley replaced Rayner.
