OT: Coolest Goalie Style

I'd post this in the "History of Hockey" board but almost no-one reads what's there. Anyway, which goalie's style and look is your favorite from present and past NHL goalies?

I gotta go with Jon Vanbiesbrouck, that guy had style and he could rob you blind with his glove hand. And that Panthers mask was PIMP!

Although I always hated the Flyers, I gotta say Ron Hextall was pretty cool!

Felix Potvin, great exaggerated butterfly stance, quick reflexes, nice pads.

Roy,Fuhr and Hasek. Those three pretty much created modern goaltending.

Karri Takko. One of the (if not THE) very first goalie with white pads. He looked awesone with his Minnesota North Stars green jersey !!

I'm going to have to go with Huet. He's so non-chalant and relaxed in there and it looks like the puck's gonna fly by him and the BAM it's in the corner or in his glove. It just amazes me.

Roy goaled with Butterfly style
Brodeur goals with position style

Hasek goals by sound ...

for the best style , i would go with Ken Dryden ( the way he was waiting was super ! ) and Tony Esposito that was having a very low and large butterfly style ( his knees were at 12-15 inches , of the ice ! )

Seconded.

It's too bad the Leafs ruined what could have been an elite netminder by crushing his confidence.

I like Sebastien Caron and his super-loose pads. You know he's in the net just by looking at them. I guess it makes the puck not bounce as much when it hits them.

Hextall was just so awesome. But Roy was my most favorite goalie ever.

Bams = but à la Mathieu Soltezs.... I got to go with Jean Sebastien Chassé, old goltender of the dauphins de Deux-Rives. He's 18 and played for the Drummondville
Voltigeurs. He's the only goalie who gave up 2 goals from the red line by the same player in the same period.

Andrei Medvedev. Nothing better than the stereotype "Fat Kid" playing goalie!

Most entertaining goalie should be a wash between Hasek, Hextall and Fuhr.

I thought Kirk Mclean made some of the best saves I've ever seen, the guy was crazy acrobatic.
