Thread Name: BS: Lord Stanley's Cup
Subject: RE: BS: Lord Stanley's Cup
I've been so P@##ed with the Leafs for the last decade or so, I wear a Canadiens jacket just to get under the skin of people who don't know I'm really a die hard, closet-ted Leaf fan. I'll have a bonfire with it when, or if, the Leafs win Lord Stanley's mug.
Last nights game, a 4-2 Toronto win against the Habs was worth the watch, as always!
As for the goalie debate, Dryden won the Conn Smythe before he won Rookie of the year. Sawchuck had eyes that made the puck look like a beach ball. Johnny Bower never got a real chance until he was almost a senior citizen. Glen Hall played in 502 consecutive games. I'd take any one of them today. I think someone worth mentioning, and could play in any era is Martin Brodeur. But, if I had to pick one, I couldn't! I'd flip a coin and take either Bower or Jacques Plante. With today's equipment, I doubt you could put a pea past either one of them!
