|Had lightning-quick reflexes and the ability to snatch a sure goal away from opponents with his great glove hand. Challenged shooters well and was confident. Owned a wealth of experience, and that helped him in the NHL.|
|His circus-save approach led to occasional overreactions to certain shots. Could at times give up weak goals. Didn't always step up in big-game situations. Lacked a little stamina and went into a quick decline due to age.|
