The Conn Smythe didn't even exist when Broda played.

And he is definitely a better playoff goalie than Bernie Parent in an ATD sense, despite Parent's great peak.

There is no goaltender in the history of hockey that I would say has a significant edge on Broda in the playoffs. He is just about as good as you can get.

After the Leafs came back from a 3-0 deficit in the famous finals series against Detroit, Jack Adams (their coach) said that "Broda hasn't got a nerve in his body. He could tend goal in a tornado and never blink an eye."
