Right. I understand how someone with an NHL-centric view would have concerns about Holecek's limited number of games against NHL players. The counterargument is that he has a pretty good sample against Soviets who proved themselves against NHLers
I can also see how someone who heavily values longevity as an elite player would have issues with Holecek accomplishing nothing of note outside an 8 year period. The Counterargument is that 8 years is longer than the entire career of Dryden, Gardiner, or Durnan.
But I really don't understand the idea that there are questions about his domestic record
