Price, as far as he is, has a better shot. You need to come into the league early and be on a winner throughout.

Shootouts definitely make it a beatable accomplishment though. Marty didn't have the shootout for much of his prime while presumably any incoming goalie (and current goalie a la Lundqvist/Price) would.
it's 0% chance lundqvist or price would make it.

yes as i said earlier, brodeur have been trought 3 lockouts and he has 105 ties on his waist too. without those two things he would be reaching 800 wins instead of 700.

from the current goaltenders best chance might be john gibson who hasn't even started his career properly yet but has a potential to be full time starter in anaheim.

but in the end, considering the fact teams are giving more starts to their backups nowdays and such, it's almost unbreakable record cause you would need to be starter from age 20 and record 20-40 age 35 win seasons avg for making it, it's just something i can't see happening.

A reminder regarding European players breaking alltime records. Don't forget they usually don't play as long in the NHL as North American players do. A guy like Ovechkin might end up in the KHL, and Swedish players might want to finish their career in Sweden.

Regarding records being broken, of course many will be broken during the following 20-30 years. If we get an era where scoring goes up (due to larger goalposts, smaller goalie equipment, etc) we might see some offensive records being broken while the goalies probably won't break any. If we enter an era when there are fewer goals scored than today and basically impossible to beat the goalies, then some goalie records might be broken.

Wow. thats actually interesting. Hopefully he gets addicted to hockey and actually does that. Would be cool to see that record broken so soon.
