Remove a 51 games season and the average dips to under 30 games. This is about the number of games Bunny Larocque played per season as Ken Dryden's back-up. Basically a tandem goalie all the way thru with the Canadiens.

Lumley and Rayner were much better goalies. Reasons listed above plus previously in the thread.
How do you think he compares to the more modern trio of Barrasso, Beezer, and Cujo?
