And he was Team Canada's first choice at every best-on-best tournament during the time - 1984 Canada Cup, 1987 Canada Cup, 1987 Rendezvous. That has to be a feather in his cap above Billy Smith, right?

My guess is that Billy Smith vs Grant Fuhr vs Gump Worsley will be a big topic of discussion next week, but we can start talking about it now.
Agreed, Fuhr was clearly considered the best at the time. He had a lot of practice making the spectacular save in the regular season with the Oilers.

His 403 wins put him 9th all-time. Only Curtis Joseph has more and is not on the list yet. Only Roy and Brodeur have more playoff wins than his 92.
