Belfour played a far more structured game which gave the team (and everyone) confidence he was going to stop the puck when called upon.
Yep. Having the Cat allowed us to dump Fuhr to Buffalo for Big Dave, who was obviously a huge factor in those playoff runs. I felt a sense of calm when Felix was in net.
