You have to adjust for the eras, though.

Hasek has a 57.2% support-neutral win percentage in the playoffs (an estimate of how much he'd win if his teams allowed a league-average number of shots, and faced an average goaltender each night).

Roy is at 58.1% (postseason).

Brodeur is at 54.2% (postseason).
