I can only judge on what I see, and what I read (which I usually take with a grain of salt.. Montreal history has a way of making very good players into the best of all-time).
Trust me, i've had uncles, friends of uncles that told me great tales of Henri and his accomplishement. He was one of the true great. I would never ever consider Dryden a great one, though.
Aside, where do you live in Australia?
I'm not from Australia!
Look at the city inscription: I made a bad joke and wrote "Quebec city, Australia".
