One of my favorite goalies of all time is Chicago's Al Rollins, featured here on the cover of the December 1954 issue of Blueline: The Hockey Monthly.
Just by looking at the stats you would not think Al Rollins was anything spectacular. Think again.
In 1953-54 Rollins numbers took a beating while playing with the lowly Hawks. But forget about the 12-47-7 record. He played in the all star game and had 5 shutouts. Most importantly, he won the Hart Trophy as the league's MVP! That tells you just how good Rollins was - a 12 win season in 66 games earned him the most prestigious individual prize in hockey, over names like Gordie Howe and Rocket Richard!
