Which goalie had the best Playoff run ever...
 
Well from 1980 on I would say...

My picks in order



1) JS Giguere Ducks 93 Conn Smythe
2) Dom Hasek Sabres 99 Game 6 of finals
3) Brodeur 03 7 Shutouts Stanley Cup
4) Roy 93 Montreal Cup (Conn Smythe I think) I dont think he should of gotten it in 01, Sakic or Forsberg should of IMO
5) Tim Thomas 2011 Bruins (Cup Conn Smythe)

Giguere's 2003 playoffs is #1 AINEC.

I'd put Thomas ahead of Brodeur's 2003 playoffs pretty easily tbh.

EDIT: Forsberg didn't even play in the 2001 Finals. Why would he get the Conn Smythe? :huh:

LetangInTheSO 03-27-2013 03:16 PM

Giguerre, Roy, Dryden come to mind

Forsberg didn't even play in the WCF or SCF.

JS Giguere and Dominik Hasek. It's a tossup. All of the other choices were phenominal but still had great teams in front of them at least. Giggy and Dom dragged their teams kicking and screaming to the Finals.

No love for Ron Hextall '87?

HappyGilmourr 03-27-2013 03:20 PM

Giggy sticks out to me I remember every game he was getting shutouts and standing on his head and then in a losing cause still got the MVP.

BLNY 03-27-2013 03:20 PM

Roy. Might not have had the lowest GAA, or best save %, but 10 OT wins and the number of do or die saves he made in 93 was unreal.

BillDerlago 03-27-2013 03:20 PM

Roy in either 86 or 93.

Giguere was unreal the year they lost. Those oversized pads helped though.

Dryden's career was basically one long cup run. Guy was a freaking beast...6 cups in 8 years. From 76-78 he went 36-6 in the playoffs with GAA of 1.92, 1.55, 1.89. Not normal

TheStroker 03-27-2013 03:25 PM

Giggy in '03. Watching his accept the Conn Smyth with tears in his eyes as the Devil's celebrated was heartbreaking. Glad he was able to make up for it a couple years later.

Dryden played on the most stacked teams imaginable. Has to be one of the guys from the 90s or Giguere.

Dark horse: Glenn Hall when Chicago won in 60-61.

Ken Dryden

it's funny comparing the past two goalies and Conn Smythe winners. Tim Thomas looked like Hasek every night, sliding and flopping around and somehow stopping the puck, each time it looked like a super-human effort. Jonathan Quick made each save seem routine and uninteresting, I swear that every shot taken hit him right in the logo and was held for a stop in play. Yet Quick was better at stopping shots than Thomas and better than any other Cup winner in modern history. Really funny how the aesthetics of the game can make one performance seem better than the other.

ScoreZeGoals 03-27-2013 03:39 PM

Jonathan Quick absolutely must be in the discussion:

16-4, 1.41 GAA, .946 SV%

Thomas faced 311 more shots than Quick did and made 290 more saves. Thomas also one more shutout.

Quick had better stats. Thomas was the better goalie.

Which is interesting, because that really isn't Quick's playing style. He is extremely athletic, much more of a "scrambler" who uses that athleticism to make tremendous saves. In terms of stats, Quick had arguably the most dominant playoff run of all time last year. However, I think Giguere's play in 2003 was out of this world. That's saying a lot - I hate the Ducks. I don't know if anyone will ever beat his performance.

Jonathan Quick last year in the playoffs put up better stats than any of the aforementioned goalies.

TBF Quick probably had the most D help than any other goaltender during the playoffs. Kings were superb at letting teams shoot from the perimeter, efficiently clearing rebounds and keeping chances low-grade. Funny that Quick *is* a pretty flashy goalie but he simply didn't have to be amazing most of the time - moving well and keeping the pads on the ice did the trick very often.

Quick had better stats. Thomas was the better goalie.

He also played in 5 more games... and let in 23 more goals. I don't know about that.

Brian Elliott set the record for the best save percentage ever with 0.940 last season. Would you take him over Lundqvist?

That might have something to do with the fact that Thomas played more games than Quick.

SettlementRichie10 03-27-2013 03:44 PM

Yeah, statistically Quick had the best ever, but that was more attributed to the entire team than a Herculean individual effort.

My picks are Roy in 93 or Hasek in 99 as far as individual performances go.
