The difference is that Holecek and Tretiak met more often, and they competed directly against each other for a number of years. Since Holecek has beaten Tretiak to many "best goalie" awards, I do not understand why Tretiak is ranked so much higher.

Dryden has had NHL career, which is why he's ranked so high.

Tretiak played in watered down soviet league / international hockey - where he was not better than Holecek, at all. So I do not think you have advantage in goal.
