Another player I was looking at on the blueline Garth Boesch. He'd make a great 2nd or 3rd pairing guy. Won 3 straight Stanley Cups in 4 years before having to return to his family farm.

"Boesch was partnered defensively with Bill Barilko. The two became famous for the "Maginot Line Knee Drop," as both players would simultaneously drop to their knees to blow enemy shots.

Boesch's career was short and sweet. Following the 1949-50 season Boesch had to return to the family farm. His father had passed away that summer and Garth had to return to "make some real money."
