Dryden/Larocque weren't too shabby.

Part of the time it would've been Charlie Hodge, though they only carried 1 in those days and had call ups when necessary.

I think We had a Poll not long ago.

My vote goes for Racicot / J.C. Bergeron

My vote would probably be Dryden,Larocque, but maybe Plante and his back-up or Worsley and his back-up could be mentioned as well.

While on the subject of goalies, when was the last time (if ever) the Habs had 2 right-handed goalies ? I don't know if rightie is the right word, but i mean blocker on left hand, catches with right.

Also, have the Habs ever had a goalie who is a righty-lefty, like Theo ?

Hayward and Roy gets my vote. My reasoning is with Plante and Dryden the backup really didn't play a big roll, but in Hayward's case there were many times that he would play 2 in a row or 3 out of 4 when Roy was in a funk, so.....

Theodore and Garon has the making to win this title, if they stay together for a few more years and Garon can take his game up a little.

If we are going by "duo" as in two goalies that played almost equivalent amount of time...

Jocelyn Thibault and Andy Moog could be up there.

Wasn't Doug Soetart a lefty? Bill Durnan used to switch his stick and play both sides...lol

My vote goes to Roy/Hayward even though Roy was still shaky at times in the early years. Hayward was the best backup we've ever had imo. Larocque was good, but he hardly ever played and only fully developed when he left Montreal, though his career didn't last too long after that.

Vachon was still young and shaky when he left Montreal. Plante was young when McNeil was the other goalie in Montreal, but I don't think he had a backup after that, he was the only goalie.

My vote would be either

Worsley/Vachon or Worsley/Hodge. Both real good.

Dryden/Larocque were good also

Booyah! Hayward was my favorite goalie. Loved that stand-up kinda goalie. Always playing the angles. So I agree with you Hayward and Roy.

I was just saying last night here on the board that Theodore and Garon have the potential of being a great tandem like Roy and Hayward were in the 80's.

My pick Roy and Hayward, Garon will be looking to get more games in the next couple of years playing behind Theo...it could change my pick later.

Two overtime wins over the Bruins, Johnny V. Oops! I forgot for a moment that you're a closet Leafs fan and an Eagle lover.

Actually it was Thibault and Moog. Theodore didn't play a single regular season game that year. He did play 3 playoff games though I beleive.
