They did have some very good horses.

But the Bruins only led the league during the regular season twice while Cheevers played for them. Clearly they didn't have the horses that the Islanders, Canadiens and Oilers had after Cheevers returned to the NHL. But the goalies for those teams are already in.

Between those 3 teams they won 12 Cups. Only once did their goalie win the Smythe. Billy Smith won it in '83 with a 13-3 record and 2.68 GAA. Cheevers in '70 was 12-1 with a 2.23 GAA.
