Felix Potvin card #18 1994-95 Fleer Netminders #7

  • Love this insert.  Simple photo, has the name of the insert in the background, has the year of the card in the upper right corner, and a nice bio on the back.  
  • Speaking of bio on the back:  "Potvin avoided a sophomore slump in 1993-94, building on a rookie campaign that saw him pace the league in Goals Against Average (2.50)"  Now just imagine in today's NHL, a GAA of 2.50 would be considered middle of the pack and more than half a goal a game worse than the elite.  The game has changed over the past two decades for sure.
  • Career win #18 for Felix came on March 6th, 1993 versus the Winnipeg Jets.  Felix would stop 24 shots in a 4-2 at home for the Leafs, with Dave Andreychuk (now in the HHOF, congrats Dave!) scoring his 41st goal of the season to ice the win.
