  1. Bryan

    I’ll take 87% over the 78% on test #1. Keep these coming, they are a little humbling, I thought I knew my goaltending, guess not (I’ll blame it on age, not lack of knowledge)! 🙂

  2. Tomas Hertz,MD,BA

    Glad you had fun! We can all improve our knowledge !

  3. Nick H.

    I haven’t prayed to the partial-credit gods and received their blessings like this since college! 😉

  4. Dan Anderson

    Started off hot, fell apart in the end

  5. Dave

    fell apart early, then got pulled in the second!

  6. JD Do

    On the last 4 goalies to win the Calder Trophy…You Missed Evgeni Nabokov. He won the Calder before Raycroft. and then Brodeur. So the answer is suppose to be…MASON – RAYCROFT – NABOKOV – BRODEUR

  7. Aaron

    66%, which is a shade better than the 63% I posted in the first quiz. Only beat it because I knew two out of the final three questions, and guessed the last one right. These are a lot of fun, even though I’m ashamed to say I know very little about the history of the sport.

  8. Curtis Ryser

    21 out of 25 and a couple wild guesses that;s good enuff lol

  9. Tomas Hertz,MD,BA

    Jd Do , the answer is based on the choics available. you are correct that Nabokov was a winner in ’00-’01 but he is not one of the choices. Therefore, the correct answer (of choices provided) is A.

  10. Taylor Olson

    I had no idea on some of the questions on quiz number 2
