To End The Debate

Jiri Crha was actually worth 2.38 WORP (Wins Over Replacement Player) in 1979-80, and was worth -0.27 WORP in 1980-81. That's not good, but far from worst goalie ever. According to the site HockeyMetrics.com, the worst goalies ever are (WORP is cumulitive, so the more games you play at a poor level, the worse you are):

1.) Ed Chadwick (1957-58, TOR): 70 GP, 3.19 GAA, 0.888 SVPCT, -9.45 WORP
2.) Craig Billington (1993-94, OTT): 63 GP, 4.59 GAA, 0.859 SVPCT, -8.47 WORP
3.) Peter Sidorkiewicz (1992-93, OTT): 64 GP, 4.43 GAA, 0.856 SVPCT, -8.41 WORP
4.) Ed Johnston (1966-67, BOS): 34 GP, 3.70 GAA, 0.866 SVPCT, -7.89 WORP
5.) Ron Low (1974-75, WAS): 48 GP, 5.45 GAA, 0.855 SVPCT, -7.102 WORP

As you can see, it depends greatly on the offense of the era what GAA and SVPCT are required to be horrible.

Not surprisingly, here are the career worst goalies:
1.) Ed Johnston -27.03 WORP
2.) Ron Low, -23.02 WORP
3.) Craig Billington, - 21.40 WORP
4.) Jim Rutherford, -20.60 WORP
5.) Dunc Wilson, -15.51 WORP
