not a single one had Brodeur either first or second.
Not one person who took the time to weigh all the evidence concluded that he should be #1... even fewer than the number who thought Hasek was in the top-6
It's not that I don't respect your opinion -- TBH, there was a time not long ago when I was seriously thinking that Brodeur was building a solid claim to the throne. But when 24 people actually sift through the portfolios and are unanimous that he's #3
you have to take a step back and honestly ask yourself if you've done your due diligence in forming your opinion.
I strongly recommend you take the advice you've been given here to read through Vote 1 at your leisure. It's an eye-opening collection of information, that will leave you pretty well assured that Brodeur is a fantastic career goalie but very clearly not #1 all time. If you don't want to do that, I'm not sure anyone here (or anywhere) can help you find the answers you're looking for.
I'm not saying he's number one, but I'm saying he's right there with Roy and Hasek if you ask me.
