I don't think I've ever seen a performance better than his at the 2002 World Championships. I believe in the entire tournament he was not on the ice for a single goal against, while leading the tournament in goals (including the championship winner).

If I say he was one of the fastest players ever, that is meaningless. Rico Fata was very fast. But he was one of the fastest players ever and he scored 500+ NHL goals. He is a great.
i watched plenty of the Capitals in the late 90s. And Olaf Kolzig was their best player by a fairly wide margin. And I don't see anyone clamoring to induct Ollie the Goalie
