What about Chicago's Glenn Hall? He is by far the most durable, if not the greatest, goalie, bar none.
Plante is not, was not and never will be the best goalie in the NHL.
FOR THE DEFENSE
My congratulations to Writer Ray Cave on an excellent and timely article (A Long-neglected Art Is Now Flourishing Again, Feb. 6). In this time of speeded-up, offense-minded attacks which tend to emphasize the ordinary—running, shooting, etc.—and detract from the imaginative, it is refreshing to see evidences of new outlook and pace in basketball.
The best defensive team east of the Rockies is St. Louis University.
