January 13, 1958 Dink Carroll Column Comparables

Column features some comparables during a discussion with Johnny Gagnon, Muzz Patrick and Bill Chadwick. Goalies are discussed and Chadwick considers Bill Durnan the best from his refereeing days. Davey Kerr and Bert Gardiner are mentioned. Johnny Gagnon's observation is gaining support from some of the SV% data being mined by BM67:

Strange comment by Tiny Thompson if taken literally/seriously when asked "how do you recognize a talented goalie when you see one" and he answers "I cant". And the guys working as a Scout? Perhaps it speaks to the changes in the game & how Goaltenders were adapting, as noted with Durnan in the 40's playing it Standup yet still deeper in the crease than was Plantes technique, some Acrobats still employed far & wide. This era, mid 50's through early 60's one of transition & development in the crease. Tiny's comment Im sure "flip", meant to amuse. Im sure he had a handle on things. Self deprecating humour.
