hasek had great longevity. hasek is older than roy, and retired later.
I've never understood people knocking Hasek's longevity. He was drafted in 83, was an elite goalie before he came to the NHL, and was still an elite goalie in his 40's after the lockout. To me, Hasek clearly stands alone out of any goaltender in history, I just don't understand how some could not have him in their top 3 even.
