This is why it's silly to compare a goaltender's talent level to a forward's. How can you guage how talented they are comparatively?

If we're talking talent levels, I say Koivu is the most talented.

If we're talking impact on the Canadiens, I would say Theodore. But virtually every team that has a top 10-15 goaltender would say the same thing (that their goaltender has the greatest impact on how successful they are as a team).

Impact wise: Theodore, Koivu, Markov, Souray, Zednik, Bulis -- in that order.

Talent wise: no doubt Koivu is first, then Markov. After that it drops off too much to even discuss.
Excellent post...I agree on the order of the players of talent and impact as well
