Let's not forget that Boston has a top 5 defenseman as well, as well as a top 5 twoway player in the league...
Maybe its just me, but I wouldn't put Tim Thomas in the top 10 for goalies. Rask is solid though I do really like him.

My point was more of a win as a team approach, rather than the penguins lean on Crosby/Malkin and streaky Fleury.

1. Jon Quick
2. Henrik Lundqvist
3. Pekka Rinne
4. Cam Ward
5. Carey Price
6. Ryan Miller
7. Roberto Luongo
8. Mikka Kiprusoff
9. Marc Andre Fleury
10. Kari Lehtonen
11. Corey Schneider
12. Tim Thomas
13. Nicklas Backstrom
14. Tuuka Rask
15. Marty Brodeur
16. Semyon Varlamov
17. Jaroslav Halak
18. Ondrej Pavelec
19. Mike Smith
20. Ilya Bryzgalov
