You sure you don't mean Alain Chevrier? Millen played a bunch of games over a few seasons if I remember right, and fits your time period better.
At any rate, my vote goes to Chevrier, if for no other reason than he deserves to be mentioned here.
Man does this bring back memories though. Jimmy Rutherford gets the award for coolest looking Pens goalie ever. Blue mask with the blue jersey.
Tabaracci obviously isn't even in the running. Legendary.
I go back a lot longer than most of you, but one of the worst ever was a guy named Andy Brown from the early 70s. He didn't wear a mask, which was amusing, but he didn't stop the puck either. He liked to get into fights (different era) in those days of bench-clearing brawls, and once he got ejected from a game out of town (I think Detroit), and as he was getting booed from the fans, he bent over at the waist, shoving his ass up in the air while pointing at it with his fingers. I guess it was sort of a "kiss my ass" gesture. Crowd went nuts.
Ah, old time hockey.
