I was wavering as to whether or not to have Curtis Joseph in my top 4, but his playoff numbers are so good, that even if they are largely driven by first round performance, it's enough for me to give him a spot. I'll still have him a little bit below Barrasso, whose performances playing behind a defensively-challenged (but offensively-awesome) Penguins team really impress me (along with Barrasso's superior Vezina record ,though that is mostly from Buffalo).
Beezer and Luongo? Likely in my top 8, not sure where though.
I have no idea what to do with Tim Thomas. If he had anything like a normal career, he'd be a lot easier to rank. Two deserved Vezinas both followed by a good or great playoff appearance, losing his starting job the season in between to Rask with Rask putting up very good (but not as good as Thomas) numbers, and good but not great play before the Vezinas, all in a short career. What on Earth to do with that?
I would not be surprised if my top 6 ended up with Holmes, LeSueur, and 4 post-1980 goalies.
