31. Ed Litzenberger

Depending on who you believe, Ed Litzenberger was traded from the Montreal Canadiens for Cash in the hope that it would help what was a struggling franchise.  If that is the case, it was a huge gift as the talented forward would be named the Calder Trophy winner in a year he was traded.  He was not a one season wonder as he would be named to three All Star teams as a Chicago Blackhawk and would finish in the top five three times in Goals.  His best season was in the 1956-57 season where he was fifth in Points and the NHL leader in Even Strength Goals with 30.
