I like to extend the definition of success to selecting professional players, including teams around the world in hockey nations.

Players who have a career in the SEL, KHL/RSL, FNL, ... are good picks. Players who graduate junior (any country) but are not good enough to play pro would be poor picks. Selecting players who play in the national leagues are good picks. Sometimes a player would rather be a top line player in SEL than a 4th. liner, depth defenseman in the NHL.

To me Tretiak was a better goaltender than Healy, regardless of how many wins Healy had in the NHL or how many games he sat on the bench with a Cup winner.

The New York Rangers are the most valuable NHL franchise at $1.2 billion, taking the top spot on the Forbes list for the first time since 2004.

The magazine said Tuesday that Montreal is second at $1.18 billion, followed by Toronto at $1.15 billion.
