Honestly, the funny thing is, if Hasek actually tried to be a normal goalie, ie, a butterfly goalie, he probably would have even better numbers than he did...which is pretty mind boggeling all things considered.

IMHO Hasek is the greatest goalie of all time, and its not even close.
Tim Thomas and Dominik Hasek should not be used in the same sentence. Yes, Thomas and Hasek are unorthodox in style. However, Thomas is eratic b/c of the lack of any other skill set. Thomas is wayyyyyy toooo eratic in style. Hasek on the other hand has tremendous anticipation and vision for a goaltender.

I agree. Hasek is also my favorite as best all time goalie.
