I have no problem at all with rating active goalies high based on a talent pool argument, it's just that the order of them seems to be based primarily on trophies and Stanley Cups. Ward, Giguere and Osgood in the top 30 is definitely going way off the board, and the guys with lots of elite seasons but fewer trophies and less team success like Joseph, Luongo and Vanbiesbrouck seem to be very underrated.
Looks like you did put a lot of thought into your list which is commendable, and there's nothing wrong with diversity of opinion, I just think you should strongly reconsider the weighting you gave to team success for the various goalies. Just because goalies are often judged for the performance of their teams certainly does not mean that they should be.
