Best Leafs Goalie Ever: Broda versus Bower

First, not that this is best Maple Leafs goaltender. Not best goalie to ever play for the Leafs, hence why Sawchuk isn't part of this poll.

Bower: 2 Vezinas, 4 Cups,1 first-team All-Star including winning the 1967 championship at the age of 42.

Broda: 2 Vezinas, 2 First-team All-Star, 1 Second team All-Star, 5 Cups. Won a Cup and Vezina, went and fought in WWII, came back and won another Vezina and four Cups in five years.

Both incredibly clutch goalies, both with some interesting side-notes to their careers.

Broda for sure. You'll see him on a lot of top 10 goalies lists. Bower doesnt usually make the cut on any of those lists. Nothing against Bower but Broda beats him head to head in almost any department.
