Poll added.

I vote McLean. If it was the most colourful goaltender Smith would win hands down.

7-1 Luo over Mac. I see I'm fighting a losing battle here. My rationale? Mac got better in the playoffs. Luo kinda does the other thing.

Do you also feel that Trevor Linden is better than the Sedins too?

In the playoffs that's not a bad question. Let me think about that one.

All things being equal and if they were both with the team today, I'd take McLean in the playoffs. Of course Luongo's regular season numbers are outstanding and are there in black in white. They are better. However, I don't necessarily measure things that way. I want the cup and if I had to pick who I think is the better goalie to get us the cup it would be McLean.

As for Linden vs. Sedins. I would take two Lindens in 1994 beast mode over two Sedins. I know that's cheating a little (as I am with Mac) but it is what it is.

Its Luongo / Mc Lean

Those who just pick luongo never actually saw Mc Lean play on a regular basis. From 88 to 95 he was by far the best goalie we had ever had.

Luongo is the most athletically talented but Mc Lean was technically stronger than Lui. In fact, Captain Kirk was considered one of the best positional goalies in the NHL .

Its like me trying to figure out how good Johnny Bower or Terry Sawchuk was. There is no way for me to know because I didnt watch them play. Ive seen a few videos of them and thats not enough.

Ive seen both Luongo and Mc Lean and its just a coin toss.

Fair enough.

McLean played well in the playoffs, but he also had some not so good games. People are far to quick to jump on Luongo for a few bad games and even blame him for games where the entire team didn't even show up. If I had to pick one for a 7 game SCF series I would take Luongo hands down. I really don't think people appreciate Luongo for how good he really is. I guess that won't come until it's too late and he's been moved to another team.

That statement is just wrong. I saw both goalies play regularly, and I prefer Luongo. Luongo is one of the best goalies in the entire NHL and has been a top 5 goalie for us for almost 7 years. McLean was good, but he was not at Luongo's level.

Which of those goalies got swept in the SCF?

Which of those goalies posted 2 1-0 shutouts in the SCF?

Here's an interesting stat: Richard Brodeur had more offensive support in the first 2 games against the Islanders (that he lost both of) than Luongo had in the entire 7 game series versus the Bruins.
