Are goalies overglorified in Montreal?

I think it's the opposite. I think it's undervalued, and for one specific reason, and keep in mind, this is how I see it.
When you're a player ( forward or D ) and you screw up, you've got the rest of the team to rely on so they can fix your mistake. When a goalie screws up, he only has his posts to rely on.
A goalie is either a hero or a zero. He can have a phenomenal game and then have one bad moment and concede a bad goal, he will be remembered for that goal. A forward can be invisible for the whole game and then score the winner with 2 seconds left on a deflected shot, he will be the hero.
People have no idea how hard it is to be in that spot, especially in Montréal, and i doubt they ever will.
