I like your Goaltending picks with the exception of.... Glenn Hall. If I could turn back the clock & capture Lightning in a Bottle, I'd replace him with wee Roger Crozier circa 64'ish. I was never a fan of "Mr. Goalie", and as your likely aware, I played net myself, as a kid witness to the Big 4 or 5 of Plante, Sawchuk et al. The Butterfly was/is really little more than a
, not how I believe the position should be played on a full-time basis. However, I do empathize with todays players in that its just about the only way the position can be played with the cycle game one faces out front. Youve gotta play back, deeper in the crease. Perhaps the best illustration being Dryden, taken apart by the Soviets in 72. He figured it out, eventually (and he's noted for intelligence? Wat dat?), but by that time, TeamCanada on the ropes. Sinden as well, Game 4 by the time he played 4 men up front, stopping the Soviets in the neutral zone. Trap. Not pretty.
