Yes I agree, he should be in the HHOF. Remember him well in the Habs losing effort to Toronto in 1967, then going on to win a Vezina with Worsley, 2 Stanley Cups in Montreal in 68 & 69. Was a terrific netminder who unfortunately combined with Montreals' exit from the Playoff's in 1970 and Drydens' arrival in 1971 (and he wasnt about to play Back-Up so he demanded a trade) made him expendable. Was really quite brilliant in LA, team success fleeting, and if you were based in the Northeast missed much of his career after his departure to California. One of my All Time Favorites.
