Yes, his stats during the '94 run were impressive, but he didn't sustain a high level of play over most of his career.
Luongo and Martin Brodeur however have consistently put up elite level stats over the past decade, and in Brodeur's case only dropping below .910 in the past couple of seasons. Luongo's only season below .913 was his rookie year.
McLean was never elite. He was on that second tier at his time. Technically sound and steady. It's ironic that his most famous save was one where he was so out of position to make.
In any case, I'm sticking with my choice of Brodeur in this poll.
