It will be tough for any one goaltender to lay claims to the undisputed best for the foreseeable future. Lundquist is closest to being able to make that claim, but I don't feel he's great deal above price either.

BTW: In 2009 messier ranked 1 spot ahead of Jagr's on the alltime list, mostly based on longevity ect, but views have shifted dramatically since then. More European voters have also influenced rankings. I've seen Jagr as high as 11th all time on these lists. People are now shifting their views from team performances to individual performances and realizing one player can't make a team. There is not a change in hell that Guy Lafleur or Mike bossy should be ahead of Jagr.
Just think if Price can play as long as Broduer has what we'll be saying about it him?
