Comparing Hugh Lehman to Tony Esposito

This was all posted during the last All Time Draft

Lehman, like Tony Esposito, was a dominant regular season goalie for a long time, but sometimes struggled with long shots in the playoffs:

From the 1923 Stanley Cup finals (Lehman's Vancouver vs. the Ottawa dynasty that was on their way to winning a third Cup in four years):

Long shots are the bane of Lehman's life. Ottawa drove their shots nearly all from the blue line, two of them registered within the first period, and then the Senators settled back on their heels and took everything Vancouver had without waving the flag of defeat.

But they're good enough goalies that you can win even if they weren't perfect in the playoffs.
