In no particular order
1.Quick
2.Lundqvist
3.Rask
4.Price
5.Schneider
6.Luongo
7.Niemi
8.Nabokov
9.Rinne
10.Anderson
11.Howard
12.Halak
13.Crawford
14.Brodeur
15.Lehtonen
16.Pavelec
17.Lindback
The bolded names do not belong in this list. Schneider/Lindback haven't even gotten a full season under their belt, Nabokov hasn't had a full season in 2+ years, and Niemi/Crawford are just flat out worse than Fleury in terms of consistency and talent.

The lack of Miller and Kipper on that list is also another fail.

EDIT: Forgot to talk about Howard. He put up good numbers on one of the best defensive teams in the past couple years, with the greatest dman of our generation. Lets see how he does in a much worse defensive system now before calling him better than a cup winning goaltender in Fleury.
