Rank Glenn Hall, Terry Sawchuk, Patrick Roy, Jacques Plante, Martin Brodeur

How would you rank Glenn Hall, Terry Sawchuk, Patrick Roy, Jacques Plante, and Martin Brodeur? I would rank them 1. Terry Sawchuk, 2. Patrick Roy, 3. Glenn Hall, 4. Jacques Plante, 5. Martin Brodeur.

I'm from Humboldt, so....

1) Hall
2) Plante
3) Sawchuck
4) Brodeur
5) Roy

These guys can all be listed as 1a, 1b, 1c, 1d, 1e respectively (and then include Tretiak and Hasek) so it's really splitting hairs in some instances for what you like or do not like. I never got to watch the top-3 play live, I've viewed several old tapes but that still does not help legitimize my opinion, obviously.

I spoke with Glenn Hall a few years ago, and I asked him who he thought was the greatest goaltender... believe he said Plante.

Here is a piece from an on-line article on Glenn Hall:

http://thehockeywriters.com/the-best...d-other-teams/
"Hockey Pictorial magazine interviewed Hall for their March, 1962 issue and asked him to pick an all-time All-Star team from the players he played against in his first 500 games. He chose:
G- J. Plante, MTL
D- D. Harvey, MTL
D- B. Gadsby, NYR
L - D. Moore, MTL
C- J. Beliveau, MTL
R - G. Howe, DET; M. Richard, MTL; B. Geoffrion, MTL. "

I dont like mixed list of the best goaltenders.
1. Plante
2. Sawchuk
3. Hall
I didn't watch them.

1. Hasek
2. Roy
3. Brodeur
I watch them all.

You probably could create any list of them and you would be right.

Probably to avoid the Hasek vs. the rest debate.

wither the OP thinks that Hasek is clearly the best and there's no need to rank him with the rest of these mortals.... or, he doesn't think he's in this class.

Level 1: Dominik Hasek,, Patrick Roy, Jacques Plante

Level 2: Terry Sawchuk, Glenn Hall

Level 3: Clint Benedict, Martin Brodeur, Ken Dryden, Vladislav Tretiak (though Bower and Broda and a couple of others are worthy equals in some respects)

Too hard for me to quantify "best", but if I were choosing a goalie for my team and these were the options, my choices would be in this order:
Plante
Sawchuk
Hall
Brodeur
Roy

Like TheDevilMadeMe, I'm curious as to why Hasek was left out of the poll, since his inclusion would give us the (almost unanimous) six greatest goalies of all time. But for the sake of the OP, I'll exclude Hasek. My order of these 5 (or 6 with Dom) switches almost on a weekly basis, based on the most recent arguments I've heard...just another testament to how close these guys are to each other, and how they all were able to establish themselves as far greater than their peers.

For now, this is my order. Ask me in a week, and it will probably be different:

1. Roy
2. Plante
3. Brodeur
4. Sawchuk
5. Hall

(Hasek is my number 1 or 2, I've recently been flip flopping between him and Roy)

Hit the nail on the head right there. You could pretty much provide a legitimate argument for any of these guys as the greatest ever, depending on how you weight things like peak vs. prime vs. longevity/consistency, regular season vs. playoffs. etc.

The only player here that might have a tough time being argued as the greatest ever is Hall, because I feel like the vast majority of people view Plante and Sawchuk as slightly ahead of him...maybe I'm wrong though.

This is probably how I'd list them, but I'm interested in reevaluating Sawchuk vs Plante

That is a really odd spelling of Esposito...

and why would the 1981 Calder winner be an 80s goalie and the 1986 Smythe winner be a 90s goalie?

Yea, not entirely sure why Belfour is in the 80s when he played 20ish games in that decade.
