Overlooked by the Hall of Fame
David Bier Studios, Montreal Gazette files
It’s no secret that I have long believed that former Canadiens goaltender Rogie Vachon belongs in the Hall of Fame. I’ve said it, yelled it, written it and argued for it. But it’s ultimately up to fans, and others, to enshrine Vachon, the best goaltender of his era not to be in the Hall.
Inside/Out regulars will be familiar with the exhaustive research and passion of Robert Lefebvre, whose Eyes On The Prize blog should be among your bookmarks.
Robert L, as he’s known in these parts, makes a three-part, entirely thorough case for Vachon’s place in the Hall of Fame. See if you don’t agree – and aren’t ready to make a little useful noise with a letter to the Hall – after you’ve read:
