    I was just remiscing about great goaltending in Quebec and obviously Mario Gosselin came to mind. His magic in Quebec led the Nordiques through the 80s and early 90s. In 1985-86 the Nords won the Adams division, Gosselin sturdily backed up Clint Malarchuk to the title. Any thoughts about him as the most underated golie of the decade?

    Malarchuck 26-12-4
    Gosselin 14-14-1


    Career 86-93-13 GAA 3.69 (remember it was the 80s) SO: 0 (but they don't record one goal games)

    I remember Gosselin. Pretty good netminder, but to my mind not the most underrated in Quebec. I think Daniel Bouchard was a very underrated netminder who led the Nords on a couple of memorable playoff runs.

    In 83-84 Bouchard played 57 games, going 29-18-8 with one shutout and a very respectable GAA of 3.20. In the playoffs that year he played in 9 games, going 5-4 with a 2.76 GAA.

    Career numbers it's not even close.

    Gosselin 91 wins 107 losses 14 ties 6 shutouts and 3.73 GAA
    Bouchard 286 wins 232 losses 113 ties 27 shutouts and 3.26 GAA

    Man, that was a while ago. He was not a bad goalie, though.

    Speaking of obscure goalies from the 80s... what about ole 'Pokey' Reddick? I liked that guy... mainly because of his nickname, lol.

    Don't forget his partner Daniel "The Bandit" Berthiaume.

    Pokey and the Bandit. Best. Goaltending. Tandem. Nickname. Ever.
