I'd really like to discuss Rogie Vachon in this round, if we could. Is Vachon a poor man's Worters? Good goalie on a bad team type of deal? Doesn't look as if Vachon is recognized quite as much as Worters was (thus Worters' placement already), but he seems to get some MVP love here and again...1974 he was one of just two goalies to get a vote (Espo), 1975 he was a pretty close 2nd to Bobby Clarke, 1976 he was named the starter of the 1976 Canada Cup roster (one of the best teams ever assembled I do believe) and was named Team MVP and the best goalie of the tournament, 1977 (back to the Hart stuff) behind Lafleur and Clarke and the
goalie known to have gotten a vote, in 1978 (though a single vote), he was one of just four goalies to get one (Edwards, Espo, Dryden).
That's a pretty strong peak relative to this crew I think...
