Any particular reason why he's so criminally underrated around here?
The better question would be: is there any particular reason why THN ranked him like they did?

We know very little about Chabot's regular season performances outside of his one great year in 1935. It's hard to credit him with being a great goalie when our evidence of his greatness is pretty much one season. He also contributed almost nothing to the Rangers' efforts in the Cup Finals of 1928, losing Game 1 and then being knocked out for the series and famously replaced by Lester Patrick in a Rangers Game 2 overtime victory. An undrafted started in nets in games 3, 4 and 5 for the Rangers.

I hope you have more information on Chabot because he's a guy who we could be underrating, but based on what information we have currently, I can't see why he should be picked higher.
