Comparing portions that are all meat to meat with tofu. Rollin's meat needs minor league tofu to compare with Cheevers all meat resume.

Conversely I think that a solid case can be made that Rollins was a better goalie and his NHL career was more accomplished than Gerry Cheevers in the same way but not extent,that Bower's NHL career surpasses Cheevers'
