Id go with Mike Richter. Yes, some homerism, but only 1 man has ever beat him. Doug Weight.

All time: Hasek(not sure if the Dominator still has those razor sharp reflexes)

Right Now: Brodeur

You all gonna laugh but...

Steve Shields stopped all 6 PS he faced in his carrier and some were from very good players.

(It's not a homer pick and he isn't even on my team anymore.)

As Joe said... Dominik Hasek, the king of the penalty shot.

Mike Richter is the best of ALL TIME at penalty shots. That is not a homer pick.

Hasek? pssh. greatest goaltender yes but penalty shot, no way.

Duh, the pad-stacking dynamo J-S Aubin.

Kidding, kidding, I'd seriously choose Martin Brodeur.

I've seen Richter make some pretty amazing saves, but you can never go wrong with Hasek....

I'd go for Richter as well, especially considering he saved a penalty shot from Bure in the SC Finals.

Hasek at his peak. Hasek at the Olympics? He won them a Gold medal.

When he was in Buffalo they used to end practices with penalty shots. The practice wouldn't end until someone scored. They would easily go through the whole team before someone scored, and when they did Hasek used to be furious that he let one in.

Hasek hands down.

Pavel Bure, one of the most reliable PS players of all time if not the best.

And you're bringing up practice? Don't even try, No contest.

Hasek's save on Lindros in the '98 Olympics was absolutely awesome.

Heh... after Brian Boucher had that remarkable save against Elias in the 2000 Eastern Conference Finals, I think he was feelin' like a million bucks. The team had an open practice at the Spectrum that following Fall, and let me tell ya... Boucher tried doing that save probably about 5 times, with each guy just roofing it, and Brian smashing his stick all over the place. It was great.

IN 1998 Hasek stopped Nieuwendyk, Fleury, Shanahan, Bourque and Lindros in the Olympics. He had a lot of pressure on him since its the Olympics and Roy only let one in (to Reichel of all people).

Got to go with Hasek on this one.

I like the guys who said Jose Theodore. That's whom I'd pick as well. Why? He has faster feet than Brodeur or Hasek, and seems bigger on the puck. Theodore's main problem has been making that second save, not the first.

Just to be different: Giguere

Almost never makes the first move, stays square to the shooter.

He makes you beat him with a perfect shot.

The reason I wouldn't pick Theodore is because he goes down into the butterfly to early and as a result prematurely exposes the top of the net.
