Clint Benedict will be my first pick here because he was the best goalie of his era and you can only compete against guys from your own era. He was the league's best goalie like 6 or 7 times.
AT LEAST 6 or 7 times when you consider his NHA years. And he was stellar in the playoffs. Much better in the playoffs than Durnan, and much better in the regular season than Broda. Overall, more valuable than either of them.
