It's really worse than Barrasso's (1st team at least), Thomas' and Cheevers? I think we're getting a little carried away with that, no?

I don't want to be an All-Star Team counter but I want to explore this a little more...

This is the first time where I've seen a goalie (goalies?) come up that look like he/they don't belong on a list of greats...should be interesting...
Well, it's not just that competition was "weak" and that he was the best of it. I don't even think it was that weak. It's that I am not really sure he was even the best of that competition. his personal stats weren't outstanding, he wasn't that great compared to backups, and it seemed like he was earning the spots by default by being a GP leader.
