Not THAT bad. Rayner and Giacomin are HHOFers and multiple NHL 1st team all-stars! Barrasso won two Stanley Cups.
So James Reimer is not the best analogy. More like a Chris Osgood, Antti Niemi or J-S Giguere, goalies who backstopped championships in the last six years WITHOUT being one of the top stars of the series.
A team doesn't need one of its top three or four stars to be goalies, but... agreed: ATD discussions often seem to downplay goaltending battles when the difference between a Patrick Roy and a short-time wonder ought to make a much bigger difference in reflections.
