If you go by accomplishments, and not just stats, Craig belongs on the list.
The above list is great, by the way...
For me, Craig will always have a special place but his overall body of work doesn't get him up there.
I have met him through family, golfed with him and Silky. I need to hide my identity now as I just threw Craig under the bus.
Remember my list is not in order, I was just throwing names out there that I think are the top 10 but again in no particular order. I do think Fred Brimsek is the best US goalie though, after that it gets murky for me. I loved the Beezer but what Barrasso did can not be looked over neither can Mike Richter. I guess those guys are my next 3 but hard to put in order.
