And seriously, if newspapers quotes could be used to show that Brimsek was somewhat equal to Durnan past WWII, then we should actually rely on the said quotes to conclude that Chuck Rayner was actually a better goalie than Turk Broda (post WWII -- Broda definitely deserves to be ahead of Rayner and Kerr overall).

Such a thing would make Broda a BELOW-AVERAGE goalie for the later part of his career.
How can a goalie that wins 4 Cups in his last 6 seasons be considered below average for the later part of his career?
