he may have been on the winning team, but the Cat did NOT out play Joseph in that series. Quite the opposite despite the Leafs moving on.
I'll leave the admiration of the opposition goalie to you, as I prefer to focus on my Leafs goalie, cheering him on instead.

Felix Potvin let in only 11 goals in 7 games (a sparkling 1.57 goals against average) in that series verses Cujo who let in 22.

Without Potvin in Leafs net, I agree the series doesn't go 7 games for Toronto, as they're eliminated earlier. If you believe that Cujo would have given up less than < 11 goals in 7 games than that is up to you to speculate on for your own admiration purposes. Blues stars like 50+ goal scorers Brett Hull & Brendan Shanahan simply couldn't dent the amour of Felix the Cat, as he kept their snipers at bay in the series to the best of his abilities.

Dougie's wrap-around goal in the 2nd OT period beating Cujo giving Leafs a 2-1 win, is among the most memorable Leaf plays of recent history, and without Felix in Toronto's net that never happens.
