Ya, I remember Maniago as being fairly acrobatic as well despite being fairly tall. He was Toronto "property", came up through St.Mikes in the late 50's but couldnt crack the Leafs full-time as Bower pretty much had a lock on the starting role. Grabbed by the Habs in 61 or 62, but as luck would have it, Jacques Plante stood in his way. Winds up in New York by 65-66, Ed Giacomin ascendant. Finally gets going in Minnesota, where he played for 9 seasons, Worsley coaxed out of retirement in 70 to back him up for a few years. Wound down his career in Vancouver late 70's, Goalie Coach with the Canucks for a few years, sporting goods business. Originally from Trail BC.
