Roy is at 58.1% (postseason).
Brodeur is at 54.2% (postseason).
That's all well and good but I'm not really trying to say Hasek was the best playoff goalie of all time. My point that he was essentially statistically equal to that of his peers in Roy and Bordeur who had better teams in the playoffs, most years.
Yet it's stuff like playoff performance which was used by the OP to rank Hasek 7th all time. It's completely absurd. It's an over-emphasis to the point where it's difficult to take it seriously.
What the OP is saying is that despite Hasek having almost as many Vezina's as Roy and Bordeur combined, 2 Hart's, 2 Pearsons, being statistically better in SV% and GAA in both the regular season and playoffs over everyone on the list ahead of Hasek, that Hasek is the 7th best goalie. That's not even mentioning Hasek's international play in which I believe he got the best of Roy.
