True but all still depends.

Case in point being Beezer/Richter, Carey/Kolzig, Belfour/Hasek and others.

You have this conversation with a Ranger fan in 1986 and they say Beezer.

1996 with a caps fan they take Carey and 1991 with a Hawks fan and they take Belfour.

Are scenarios featuring situations like that frequent? No.

But they aren't as rare as some people seem to want to make them out to be.
