I honestly didn't want to put either of them on my list. But I picked the guy with a longer track record. Fernandez had a very good season, but has been getting the short end of the stick with Roloson for so many years.
Honestly though, he could make my list in place of Roloson or Huet. But I wouldn't remove either of the youngsters for him and I specifically reserved a spot for a "come back guy" (Nabokov v. Turco v. Theo).

I'd put him above DiPietro any day, who should not be listed as a top 10 goalie. I think that Fernandez should be higher than most people list him.

why because i dont think guys like Lundqvist or Gerber deserve to be on the list?... i think you have to earn being considered being in the top 10... and if Lundqvist gets another vezina nomination then he would be in there... much like if gerber led another team to an eastern conference title (although with his numbers last season he would be in the CLoutier range )

I forgot to add my own list when commenting earlier.

1. Brodeur
2. Kiprusoff
3. Vokoun
4. Lundqvist
5. Luongo
6. Miller
7. Turco
8. Nabokov
9. Khabibulin
10. Fernandez

7-10 can probably be interchangeable, along with the likes of Giguere, Roloson, and Kolzig. Huet, Theodore, Gerber, Abesicher, Denis, and Dipietro are a half step behind.

The inclusion of Miller and Lundqvist may be too early but I don't think they'll flop.

I didn't add Ward or Raycroft anywhere above because I honestly don't know.

You must be either a Rangers or a Sweedish fan to have Lundqvist that high. Higher then Luongo?

1. Martin Brodeur - He's still the best.
2. Mikka Kiprusoff - The real deal.
3. Tomas Vokoun - Massive workload in Nashville and always steps up.
4. Roberto Luongo - Overrated, but still great.
5. Marty Turco - Great in the regular season, meh come playoffs.
6. Manny Fernandez - Very underrated, just gets the job done.
7. JS Giguere - Seems to have fallen out of favor, but despite the new rules still put up solid numbers.
8. Ryan Miller - Great first season, see no reason why he won't repeat.
9. Nikolai Khabibulin - He'll bounce back.
10. Rick DiPietro - The surprise. A very good goaltender on a brutal defensive team and will only get better.

Honorable Mentions:
Evgeni Nabokov - I'm sure he'll bounce back, but his struggles knock him out just barely for me.
Henrik Lundqvist - He's got the goods to crack the top 10 soon enough.
Martin Gerber - Another year similar to last and he could crack the top 10.
Christobal Huet - a 30 game stretch doesn't make you a top 10 goalie. Do it again all year.
Olaf Kolzig - Slowing down a bit, but still very good.
Mathieu Garon - Another good goalie stuck on a brutal defensive team. He needs help in LA.
Kari Lehtonen - Once he stays healthy over a full year, he'll be in the top 10 easily.

EDIT: Forgot Cam Ward and Roloson. They'd be in HM.

tough to put an order but i'd say

Brodeur
Luongo
Kipprusoff
Vokoun
Miller
Fernadez
Ward
Kolzig
Roloson
Turco


goalies are tough to pick because there are so many variables to their games...

1 - Kiprusoff. The best goalie in the NHL right now by a bit.
2 - Brodeur. Had a "rough" season but is still an elite talent that any team would build around. He'll be dominant again next year.
3 - Luongo. OMG HOMER. Whatever.
4 - Vokoun. Arguably could be 3, but he just seems to have very slightly less natural talent than Luongo right now.

After the top four it gets kind of murky. I'd say the next six are any order of Miller, Fernandez, Turco, Kolzig, Lundqvist, Roloson.

Next year Theodore might be on that list, I expect a bounce back season with a weak Colorado team. Also, Hasek is a top 10 talent wise, but I just can't justify calling him one of the best when he gets so injured so much. On talent alone, hell yeah.

I've seen Lundqvist play since 2001, and this wasn't even his best season.

Luongo sucks because Sean Hill can't clear the crease. Gotcha.

Sure EVERYONE has hyped Luongo, but how many times does he have to make 45 saves to steal a game to convince you he is the real deal?

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.
He played injured in the playoffs. Rangers had key injuries and the devs were plain and simple the better team. It wasn't like he choked in the playoffs, no one one the rangers did.

Cheers

Bold statment but I would say that Lundqvist was the best goalie in the world 2 season ago.

Because he hasnt been in the post season he isnt a great (Id put him at 3) goalie.

Thats some great logic

Luongo vs. Fernandez is very questionable. Both are very good goalies. We'll see this season.

I have to disagree, Tim Thomas was better. Henke had the comfort of playing on a top-3 team in the world that year.

Well, shouldn't a great goalie be able to take a poor team to the playoffs?

Beezer took his panther team to the finals, what has Luongo done?
