Million Dollar Line (Blackhawks)
Bobby Hull, Bill Hay, Murray Balfour
The purchase of right winger Balfour from Montreal in 1959 made this nickname a natural when he was teamed with the high-salaried duo of left winger Hull and center Hay. The trio led the Hawks to the 1961 Stanley Cup. Hull later skated on the Winnipeg Jets' Hot Line with center Ulf Nilsson and right winger Anders Hedberg after accepting a million dollar contract to join the World Hockey Association in 1972.
