goalie with the best glove hand of all time?

Coming up with the "most highlight reel" glove saves - though some would make them look exaggerated. Ex. Roys statue of liberty haha.

Possibilities.

Vernon
CuJo
Broduer
Hasek
Belfour
Roy
Kirk Maclean (sp?)
Potvin
Richter
VanBeisbrouck

Kipper has one of the best glove hands today, though hes not all time fav.

I say Roy.

Fuhr, though I seem to recall some nice ones made by Belfour.

Fuhr was the first one to come to mind. Others that I can think of are Ranford, Cujo, Terreri, Froese, Vachon(although awkward) and Sevigney.....

I recall Beezer having an amazing glove hand. However, I don't think he sustained it long enough to be considered the best ever. I only think he played at a real elite level for a few seasons. Therefore, gotta go with Patrick.

Whenever this question comes up, all I can think of Richter/Bure.

Grant Fuhr

He was the best with that hand. Player avoided shooting to his glove hand side because the chances of beating him on the glove hand side were so low.

Broduer, Roy are pretty close I would say.

Some older surprise names...Ranford, McLean both had very good gloves.

Potvin was the master of making his glove saves look amazing.

First, there is no answer to this question unless a person is 120 years old and has seen every NHL goaltender play.

As far as goalies I have seen, it is definitely Fuhr. The man had amazing reflexes. Steve Yzerman was interviewed in 1992 and he said "Fuhr is definitely the best goalie I have ever faced"
