    Who are the two best Leaf goalies since 1970? The first two that come to mind are Belfour and Joseph? Maybe Potvin?

    Ed Belfour had a short but great stint.


    Probably Cujo and Potvin though

    Belfour was fantastic in 2002-2003 and 2003-2004.

    Felix Potvin had the best peak out of all Leaf goalies and then Curtis Joseph. Aside from the more famous run in 1993, Potvin pitched 3x 1-0 shutouts vs Chicago in the first round, including the game to close out Chicago Stadium in 1994 and was just money in the bank, ice water in his veins for long playoff runs. It's a shame his game sort of declined with the team crumbling around him.

    Belfour was fantastic in 03 and 04 as well but those teams were a lot stronger on paper than the Burns teams.

    Have to go with CuJo and Potvin in a close one. By comparison, Belfour just wasn't a Leaf for long enough.

    Did the Leafs have any good goalies from 1970-1990?

    Belfour was 1 and CuJo was 2.

    Potvin close behind.

    Mike Palmateer, to begin with. There were others.

    Curtis Joseph and Ed Belfour spring to mind.

    When the Leafs got Fuhr it became clear immediately that a goalie could really help the team.

    Potvin was great, as was Cujo.

    Balfour was unreal for a couple of years until his back gave out

    Belfour was the best we've had for those the two seasons, but his back gave out in the third. Cujo and Potvin probably pass him due to tenure.

    After reading the replies I think the thread should be changed to best goalies from the 90's on.
