I chose players based on their dominance solely during the decade of the 80s. Gretzky should be everyone's #1. If he isn't, then your list is not credible. There were no real dominant goalies in the 80s who didn't die in a car crash. Hull, Lemieux and Yzerman came in partway through the decade. Bossy, Potvin, and Trottier were dominant at the beginning of the 80s but not throughout. Stastny accumulated a lot of points, but so did Gartner. I wouldn't call either of them as dominant as Messier or Bossy.

Potvin, Trottier, Stastny, Lemieux, Yzerman, Kurri, Fuhr, Savard were on the cusp.
The first post says that you can't use Gretzky or Lemieux. My goalies alone would be 1. Fuhr 2. Smith 3. Roy 4. Vernon 5. Hextall
