You have to think his selection would have something to do with how well he played in the '74 series. The Soviets thought he was better than Dryden or Espo so he must have been doing something right.

By the time Summit 74 ended the Soviets would call Gerry Cheevers the greatest goalie they had ever faced.

But yeah not so hot near the end of his career during the Challenge Cup so maybe that doesn't really address your concern.
