I have an awesome memory; one that remembers the team just needing Tommy B to make a save and him being unable to do it. His team scoring 4 goals a night and him letting 5 in (sort of like MAF's most recent playoff experience).

People who **** and moan about MAF, but then point to Tommy B need to wake up: The guy could've been replaced by Craig Billington and they still would've won.
Your memory, as I said, needs a lot of work.

Barrasso was a money goalie who, despite your best attempts of revisionist history, made the big saves when they needed them the most. Even Mark Madden who despises him admitted to that.

Barrasso backstopped them to their first Cup with "which way is my end?" Coffey and two rookies in front of him.

He may of had a stellar offense in front of him, but so did many other goalies in the fire wagon days.

One luxury he never had was a stout blueline, ala Brodeur.
