Last time I checked Roy and Hasek were #1 and 2 on the list, while Belfour snuck in well before his time.

Basically comparison by proxy as opposed to merit. Specifically compared to Roy and Hasek none of the others standout but there was a need to include a third so ......

As for modern goalies, very few will rank highly compared to pre 1980s goalies in terms of skill. Getting in the way of a puck is not a skill, just willingness.
