In the end, it was harder than I expected. For some goalies it was very difficult to find an upgraded picture that was a high quality. Some goalies in the set are obscure and only have a few, or even one picture, in existence of them in the corresponding teams uniform. I also tried to avoid using pictures that come from another OPC card and, if possible, pictures used by the guy selling homemade cards on eBay. There are a few cards that I had to either pick a low-res picture, or no picture at all. There's one card, if I choose to post it, will be black and white. That's the reason why I call this a Reboot and not Remastered.

The Bruins only had one goalie make it into the 81-82 set.

Jim Craig only had one card made of him during his NHL career. It was a 80-81 head shot that included the top of a airbrushed Bruins jersey. After his 1980 Miracle performance, Craig played four games with the Atlanta Flames before being traded to the Bruins for a 2nd round pick and 3rd round draft picks. The player the Flames picked in the 3rd round would win 2 Stanley Cups and a Conn Smthye during his career. Craig only played 23 games with the Bruins, all in the 1980-81 season.

That's one team down, 20 to go.
