Actually, the inclusion of Cujo at all with Hasek and Roy as a guy in the conversation as who you'd want "in one game for all the marbles" is a typical example of Toronto homerism. Peak Hasek, 3 Cups (at that point) and playoff peak Roy and... Joseph? Even Cox admits farther down that "Joseph may seem out of place."
I thought it was hilarious as well, that's why I posted most of it. He dismissed Brodeur as well, and recently Cox has been as vocal as anyone for Brodeur as the best goalie ever. Cox is probably a good example of someone whose opinion of Joseph and Brodeur completely changed from February 2002 to June 2003.

I don't mean to suggest I agree with every quote I post, just tracking the perception of Joseph.
