Tremblay isn't the greatest, but the goaltender is the player most vital to the team's success or lack of it.
Put it this way...Tremblay was the Chris Osgood of the Olympiques team. He was by no means "bad", but I'd say the main reason they didn't win the Memorial Cup was his play. He was spectacular at times, and more often than not he was good enough, and there were a few instances where he was quite poor.
