Right, I'm sort of in the same boat. I'm still not sure if the early-mid 50s Soviets shouldn't be painted with the same brush, however.

Futhermore, when we making our pitch for Zabodsky as a 2nd liner, the biggest point of comparison was Sven Tumba, somebody with who there is a comparable level of competition. I'm not sure what you think we were claiming about him, but it certainly wasn't aywhere near the level of "best goalie".
Exactly.

(though I've become convinced as of late that Tumba's greatness is much better established than Zabrodsky or Bobrov's)
