The top 4 picks are really no brainers. Khabibulin despite having a little bit of a bad year when he is hot he is really hard to beat. Just ask the Flames. Kolzig well he is basically all alone. He is out there with a bunch of rookies so they make so many mistakes but yet he is bailing them out pretty often. Hasek well I hate the guy but when he isnt injured he is pretty darn good. Roli just look at the 2006 playoffs. Fernandez has had one of the best GAA for the past couple years. He really has to be on here. Notice that Fleury is the only younger one. IMO I think he is one of the only younger goalies to have proven himself. He kept his team in it when his team had absolutely no defense to help him out. Most of the penguins games were losses but, they were all closer games then you would think.
For the upcoming season: Still don't know how Hasek's situation will work out.
Why are some people ranking Roloson so high? He had a great playoff, but an average season, and is a year older. Lundqvist and Lehtonen could very well be in the top 10 this season, if they stay consistant.
i said who is the best goalies in the nhl. that doesn't mean who was best five years ago, but ok. who is best right now.
Look, Lundqvist played a great total of 56 games in the NHL. I think it's kind of bold to put him in the top 10 right now after so few games. If he has as great a season next year then yeah I'll put him in my top 10
CAn you support that statement. He had a good year sharing the workload with Weekes, than fell off at the end, got hurt and stunk in the playoffs when he wwas healthy again.
I think Lundqvist has proven himself to be a solid goalie during most of the regular season but I don't see a clutch performer there.
Yes I know about the olympics but that is a whole other game.
You are being a little unfair there. He was not healthy in the playoffs when the Rangers got swept. After the series instead of playing in the World Championships he had surgery. and He shared nothing with Kevin Weekes. Lundqvist carried a team that had no business winning 30 games this season.
To say that you don't see a clutch performer is garbage, he won the Swedish Elite League MVP in the playoffs during 05 and carried his team to the championship, and how you don't consider Lundqvist robbing Jokinen with 7 seconds left against Sweden clutch, well I don't understand that.
Only one goaltender was better than Henrik Lundqvist this season when he was healthy and that was Miika Kipprusoff (Not by much)
Hmm, that must be why his backup had better stats than him...
did someone honestly just imply that Johan Hedberg is a better goaltender then Marty Turco
Turco: 41 wins, 2.55 GAA, .898 SP% - 3,910:12 TOI
Hedberg: 12 wins, 2.67 GAA, .898 SP% - 1,078:50 TOI
yeah its really obvious Hedberg was the better goaltender! Cause I mean Dallas could trade back for him and Im sure theyd win 53 games with Hedberg playing in goal for 8 out of 10 regular season games. /end sarcasm
alright seeing as none of the stats back you up and Ive proven my point, I'll move onto my list.
SHOUT OUT TO OLAF KOLZIG
Johan "The Moose" Hedberg
