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?
