The 1969–70 Detroit Red Wings season is noted as being Carl Brewer’s comeback season in the NHL. Baun was reunited with former Toronto Maple Leafs teammates Bob Baun, Pete Stemkowski, and Frank Mahovlich. Brewer signed a contract worth $120,000.[1] Brewer was acquired back in March 1968. The Detroit Red Wings acquired Frank Mahovlich, Pete Stemkowski, Garry Unger and Brewer’s rights from Toronto in exchange for Floyd Smith, Norm Ullman, and Paul Henderson.[2] Another important aspect of the season was that Gordie Howe had finally learned how badly treated he was financially by Wings management. Howe was always under the impression that he was the highest paid player on the team. Howe discovered that Bobby Baun was making over $100,000 per season while Howe was paid only $45,000 per season.[3] After this information, Howe confronted management and demanded that he received the appropriate compensation.
