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.
Theo ran out of town for personal reasons? Or was it the fact that he had an .881 save pct before he left? Cmon, facts are facts.

Huet was cracking before he got traded. PPL forgot his medicore playoff series against the Canes.

Abeischer was pretty terrible in his 2 seasons and much better when he was in Colorado. He played 1 NHL game after he left Montreal, is that tells you anything about above average goal tending.

Point is, besides brilliant flashes of 20-30 games, not one goalie has had a full stellar season under his watch.
