Brodeur isn't a pure stand up goalie. He plays a hybrid between stand up and butterfly, which requires him "flopping around" on shots. He may look weird when making saves, but not because of showboating.
The same applies to Thomas. I don't see him showboating as people suggest. He just has an unorthodox style.
EDIT: I'll nominate Rask as one of the biggest showboaters.
Making a windmill stacked pads save in that situation seems unnecessary.
