Tretiak's comments should be taken as REAL compliments to how USA Hockey has developed since "Herbie" took those kids and stood the world on its ear. If you look through the last 15 years or so of NHL goalies, look how many of them wear number 20. That's in tribute to Tretiak.. Still the best that's ever been (not to mention the guys in front of him).
