I am assuming we are coming to the conclusion that Tretiak was NOT the best goalie of all-time? Because that is the case here. I really don't know what the OP was asking and if it was serious. I am assuming if it were serious then he is assuming that Myshkin could be considered nearly as great if Tretiak is ranked that high. I will say this, Myshkin was a fine goalie. He stymied Team NHL in the Challenge Cup in Game 3 6-0. That was Myshkin, not Tretiak. Had some good moments in the 1984 Canada Cup as well after Tretiak retired. Likely would have made the NHL too. It is a short list when it comes to Russian great goalies, but he is one of them.
