Georges Vezina, the Chicoutimi Cucumber was a total Standup according to reports & quotes Ive read. Extremely adroit with his stick, using it almost exclusively to stop & redirect shots. I've assumed there was a variety of styles in the early years, however, Vezina appears to me at least to have been a seminal figure in the development of how the position was played which to a large extent transcends the various rule changes that occurred through the teen's, twenties & 1930's.
