Seventies-I did a search and found more info for one year, but didn't find anything concrete for any of the others.
Jiri Holecek vs. Hap Holmes
I don't think I'm stretching when I say Holecek is better. He was the 18th goalie selected, and Holmes was the 28th. Both come from eras/times where very few ATD goalies are selected, so doing any type of award/statistical comparison is impossible. I don't like to rely on canon to declare someone better than the other, but I just think Holecek is the better goalie. I don't see either backup playing a significant role here, but they are both pretty good backups.
Philadelphia has the superior starting goaltender, and an overall advantage in goal.
