I really want to vote for this series objectively. One of the huge potential advantages I see for Portland is in goal - I think that in the regular season, Lehman is probably just as good as Georges Vezina and just a little behind Charlie Gardiner.
And Hextall, well, he has a great goalie coach to help him out....
That said, Sturm, you said based on your research Lehman might be the biggest playoff choker of all time. Did you find anything other than a report or two of a goal from center ice? Just one or two incidents makes him no worse than Tony Esposito, which might be an issue, or maybe not.
Edit: Other than what we already know, which is that Lehman's teams kept losing in the finals.
