I was just remiscing about great goaltending in Quebec and obviously Mario Gosselin came to mind. His magic in Quebec led the Nordiques through the 80s and early 90s. In 1985-86 the Nords won the Adams division, Gosselin sturdily backed up Clint Malarchuk to the title. Any thoughts about him as the most underated golie of the decade?
Career 86-93-13 GAA 3.69 (remember it was the 80s) SO: 0 (but they don't record one goal games)
Location: Halfway between Nothing and Not Much Else
I remember Gosselin. Pretty good netminder, but to my mind not the most underrated in Quebec. I think Daniel Bouchard was a very underrated netminder who led the Nords on a couple of memorable playoff runs.
In 83-84 Bouchard played 57 games, going 29-18-8 with one shutout and a very respectable GAA of 3.20. In the playoffs that year he played in 9 games, going 5-4 with a 2.76 GAA.
Career numbers it's not even close.
Gosselin 91 wins 107 losses 14 ties 6 shutouts and 3.73 GAA Bouchard 286 wins 232 losses 113 ties 27 shutouts and 3.26 GAA
