I hold Lindbergh ahead of Mowers and that isn't a dig at Mowers at all.

Pelle Lindbergh was the best goalie in during TV-pucken, while this is a U-16 tournament it is very big and tough tournament. I could go into detail but I won't as it's pre junior and is a minor accomplishment.

He made the Tre Kronors roster without playing a game in the SEL. This was and is still very rare.

Lindbergh is also the only goaltender not to lose against Team USA in 1980. Pelle made such a memorable performance that when asking people who was on the 1980 roster most would tell you Pelle Lindbergh. Only a few would say any other name. Lindbergh was rested during the games vs Norway.

There is no doubt in my mind that if it wasn't for his death we would be discussing him in the ATD.
