... sure thing C58. He was "vivacious" and "outgoing". Pilsbury Dough Boy, and guess what?. I didnt like him as a Goalie. Poke check?... over-rated. Chadwick and innumerable others superior. He was a mediocre goalie on a defensively strong Leafs team. I "got" Johnnys "poke check" and guess what? Looked a Hell of a lot like Glenn Halls' in practice, execution, and I preferred the Chicago style. More slide than slam.,,, still dont understand how you K-Beckers could figure y'all had the inside track on Goaltending but hey ho.... no doubt youll be around to edify.
