No, I don't think so. Grant Fuhr, John Vanbiesbrouck, and Curtis Joseph are going to change the complexion of that soon - and 2005-onward is explained by the potential for younger goalies like Henrik Lundqvist and Jonathan Quick to make their mark. There's a good chance based upon the aggregate list that Fuhr/VBK/Joseph/Thomas make the Top-40 (as they finished no worse than #37). And I think Luongo is going to look really good if he comes up for vote. That's probably five of the final 16 goaltenders coming from after 1981.
