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'
Well, in his short time in the NHL, he did manage to earn individual recognition the likes of which Cheevers never approached. I like your analogy. Firm tofu, or silken?

Yet, Cheevers is in the hall and Rollins isn't.

Sometimes you talk like the HHOF committee is infallible. Would you say this is a pretty egregious example of poor selection criteria? Or does Cheevers' longevity and reputation as a "winner" and/or "money goalie" truly give him the edge over Rollins and over the HHOF hump?
