Though I have talked to quite a few old timers who say they feel Brodeur is the best, and they go back to watching hockey as far back as the 50s and 60s. Even Jacques Lemaire while coaching for the Wild is on record as saying Brodeur is the greatest he's seen. That's quite a compliment coming from him.

I really don't like putting Hasek above Marty though. Hasek was definitely better at his best than Marty was. He just didn't have the longevity though as far as I'm concerned.
Best goalie (i.e. if I had to pick someone for one game) = Hasek by a fair margin
Best career = Brodeur AINEC

Really depends on what you are considering when talking about the best ever. Regardless, top 3 at worst.
