    I've always loved this guy, and had to laugh at these stats when I came across them today. Put him in the Hall ASAP.

    1986-87
    GP: 66
    W: 37
    L: 21
    T: 6
    SO: 1
    GAA: 3.00
    Save %: .906

    But here's the best of it:

    Assists: 6
    Penalty Minutes: 104

    :yo:

    I loved Hextall too. But his best season was his first one in '86-87. He was a first team all-star, a Vezina Trophy winner and a Conn Smythe winner. After that he had sketchy play. He never played in the Canada Cup '87 although he backed up Fuhr. hen he had some sub-par years in Philly. If he had two mroe great seasons like that then I'd sya yeah, but he didnt. No Hall of Fame.

    He's the reason I am a Flyers fan and I love him for that. Favorite goalie of all time.

    No chance. Even his rookie year was overrated.

    I don't know about the Hall of Fame. Hextall had a pretty uneven career and he wasn't held in very high regard at the end of his career when he was putting up his best statistics. Actually, definitely no Hall of Fame as far as I'm concerned.

    I seem to remember that he took a 5 minute major for either fighting or slashing near the end of the last game of the year; which some thought was done intentionally to put his PM total over 100.
