Marty isn't anywhere near what he used to be. That said, there is one area where he trumps the other 3 guys clearly (even Smith): Stickhandling. Yes, he has made a couple gaffs, but for the most part his stickhandling gave the Panthers and especially the Flyers absolute fits.
This is exactly where I'm at.

Rangers need to do a good job of rattling pucks all the way around the boards or keeping them in the corners (ie. not letting Brodeur get to them). And then they need to take advantage of the couple gaffes Brodeur does make with it.

Brodeur may be at the bottom of this list now but he is definitely one of the best goalies to ever play the game. Age does those things. And I only wish I could stickhandle in goal as well as Marty does.

Do you guys REALLY think Smith is THAT good? He's played well, don't get me wrong, but I feel like his "technical" ability and positional soundness just isn't as good as Hank or Quick. My list would be:

Quick
Hank
Smith
Brodeur (only because of his age, obvi)

I think Johnny Quick is clearly the best goalie left in the playoffs. His mobility and ability to take away the lower portion of the net is unrivaled. Lundqvist is a VERY close second (and I'm a Ranger fan!) and if he can get his glove hand back to where it should be he'd probably be just as good if not better than Quick. Hank usually thrives in odd man rushes and one on one situations as well - haven't watched enough of Quick to say he does the same. And Smith, well, he just doesn't seem like he's AS good as the other 2. He's definitely been playing great and keeping his team in it, but I think a lot of credit has to go to the defense as well.

EDIT: I don't get how Brodeur having 3 Cups under his belt means he's the better goalie right NOW. Explain please. One thing I can say about him is that his puck-handling abilities are the best out of the 4, and if the Rangers don't figure out a way to keep the puck away from him, they're in trouble and can kiss their forecheck goodbye. That being said, I don't think Brodeur has the same athleticism (considering his age) as the other 3 guys.

For me, if it's game 7 of the conference finals:

Hank/Brodeur > Quick >> Smith

Too bad the greates goalie EVAR aka. Pekka Rinne is already out of the playoffs so you can't rank him on top.

If you actually bothered to watch Quick, you would have him under Smith and Lundqvist then.

There is no way hes faces more or done more for his team these playoffs than either of them. I think people are riding him because of the Vezina talk that ended the season.

The Kings success thus far is because of Dustin Brown, not Jonathan Quick.

Hes been great, but the other two have been amazing. Quicks probably been tested 3 total games all playoffs.
