Sawchuk gets points for his resurgence and his impact on the Cup in 1967 (arguably a Conn Smythe performance). Lumley could go to the Wings as well which is where his Cup was, but he was a First team all-star twice in Toronto. Belfour I can see, perhaps that is weak although he was still very good at that time. Any list with Broda and Bower though will get some attention. You've got a common top 10 goalie with another all-time great.
