Ken Dryden = ~.835 SV % in the 1972 Summit Series. Very ordinary in New Years Eve 3-3 tie vs CSKA. Far from a sure pick.

Rogie Vachon. Would have great short runs but was not durable or reliable long term - evidenced by his inability to take the number one job with the Canadiens post 1967 despite ample opportunities to do so.
