Thompson was probably the best in the world for a few years after Charlie Gardiner died, but that is largely due to lack of competition. For anyone who calls the 1980s the "dark ages of goaltending," look at the names in the league (other than Thompson) in the years between Charlie Gardiner's death and Frank Brimsek's rookie season.
I'm sure there were at least some people that felt Hainesworth was the best at some point in his career.
Who was Brodeur's competition when he was considered the best?
