Just thinking here. Don McLeod was Team Canada's 2nd string goalie. Before 197273 he was a career minor league goalie who had flopped in his few NHL chances. He had a mediocre 1972-73 season in Houston and then stunned everyone with a great 1973-74 season and playoff. Then Houston made no effort to resign him (what did they see?) He had a poor training camp and was very shaky against the juniors. He played poorly in Game 3 of the series against the Soviets, and against the Finnish National Team. He played well against Sweden and was again shaky in Prague against the Czechs.

Was he perhaps the worst ever professional goalie to wear the Maple Leaf in a major tournament/series?
