The market for backups must have been drier than the Sahara desert or Glen Sather must have had his memory erased of that one period if he was desperate enough to sign him for three games in 1988.
Looks like he actually didn't do too badly that year - it looks like it would have been his career year - in 27 games, he went 11-9-3 with a .903 save percentage on a Blackhawks team that went 38-35-7 - so, it doesn't look like it was a stellar team making him look better than he was. That said, as a whole, his career looks much less than stellar.
