Indeed, I would argue Hasek was the best goalie by virtue of being the best during the regular season. Roy's playoff performance is usually used to counter this, I'm not quite sure how or why this should trump Hasek. Either way I would posit Hasek was just as good of a playoff goalie. I've also seen Haseks success diminished as being the result of "stacked" teams, which I guess would mean Detroit which he joined as a 35 year old. He had proved himself during a full decade before that in the NHL.

Would the vezina success of Brodeur be diminished in light of it coming after Roy & Haseks retirements/primes? I remember him being considered a goalie that "never lets in more than 2 goals a game" even before that.
