All the goalies he coached in MTL got ran out of town (Theo, Abeischer, Huet and soon to be Price). Exeption is Halak, but look where his career is at now.
Actually, Theo got ran out of town for personnal issues. Huet was very good when with us. Aebischer was nothing stellar, but I thought he improved while he was here. Halak was good and improved. Price was also improving until Gainey went crazy and traded Huet mid season during Price's rookie season...
I don't know Rollie myself enough to judge, but from the on ice results, the Habs always had above average goaltending while he was here, while most of the goalis themselves (Huet, Aebischer, Halak) have proven to be no more than average over the span of their careers.
