Top 5 Goalies of the last 30 years

List your top five NHL goalies(no order needed)from 1970 to the present. Not a lot of people saw Hall,Plante,Sawchuck,etc... play so we'll omit them from the list and go from the early 70's on. If you haven't seen any of the guys from the 70's or 80's list what era you saw guys play in.

Grant Fuhr
Patrick Roy
Bernie Parent
Dominik Hasek
Tony Esposito

This should be interesting.........

I would include Bernie Parent over Fuhr or Smith but I watched him play very few times. Ditto Espo during the '70's

1. Roy
2. Dryden
3. Smith
4. Fuhr
5. Cheevers/Esposito

(its hard to pick Hasek/Brodeur or any other goalie who play now with the defensive systems and watering down of talent due to too many teams)

And when I consider the watering down/defensive system affects on goalies I think about international competition where the cream of the crop plays all out hockey, no trapping.

Hasek and Broduer both shined at the Olympics. Broduer really proved to me that he isn't all team defence when he won the gold in 2002. And Hasek showed me he WAS the defence on every team he's played for when he won in 98.

good point but Olympic hockey is not really as wide open as many people like to believe but I see your point... I dont think we have seen all out hockey (Olympics included since the very early 90's) ...

Also that made me think that we all missed someone (myself included)

V. Tretiak, defintatly one of, if not the best, goaltender in my lifetime...


edit--- opps didnt see it was "NHL" goalies... oh well Tretiak still one of best ever

The NHL has only added 9 teams or 180 players since San Jose. Since that time they have added more Euro's than ever in history. Most of them skilled. And while I'm not about to count... probably about 180 of 'em or so.

1. Roy
2. Hasek
3. Dryden
4. Parent
5. Smith

IMO Dryden gets underappreciated due to his teams strength.

Hasek is the best individual talent, but Roy won more.

Parent's achievements tend to get lost due to Philly's cliched reputation as a tough team. (Boston was just as tough, but Parent beat them.)
