Dirtiest goaltender - All Time

While reading Mark Messier's unauthorized autobiography...I read a passage where someone thought Billy Smith was the dirtiest goalie in the league. I never got see him play but I was wondering if he is the dirtiest or if someone can think of someone else.

Ed Belfour is the earliest one that sticks in my mind.

Smith would be well ahead of Belfour. Ron Hextall would be up there as well, he'd probably be just behind Belfour.

I have to go with Garth Snow. He is the only goalie I have seen that gets multiple penalties in a game.

Hexy giving Garth tips on how to play "dirty."


He loves to talk ***** before the game, during and after. However, most of the time he makes himself look like a jacka$$.

Hacks anyone and everyone in front of the net, just like Turco.

anyone remember when snow was on the nucks where he charged out after a puck, realised he wasnt gonna beat the player to it, so he stacked the pads and tackled the player?

He tried to castrate Martin Lapointe in the 1998 Western Conference Finals.

I remember Brett Hull scored a goal in the 1993 playoffs against the Hawks, the series winning goal. Belfour was fuming, he broke his stick over the net, even though there was a ref right next to him. (Although, this doesn't really make him a dirty goalie)

Smith, followed by hextall. i'll never forget when Rob Brown scored on him, Hextall came out of the net and started chasing brown, only to be restrained by his teamates.

Nothing wrong with that. I think the Sens broke about 3 sticks after the NJ goal in game 7 of last years playoffs

When Hextall lost it, he really lost it (playoffs against the Canadiens for example) but I don't think anyone will ever be a dirtier goalie than Billy Smith. And its too bad if people remember him for being dirty cause he was a pretty solid tender as well.

Smith hands down was the chippiest ("dirtiest", if you were an opponent :p ) goalie I've ever seen.

Not to mention the greatest money goalie of all time.

there is a reason people refer to Belfour's stick as a weapon. he's not nearly as bad as he used to be.

I wouldn't say Cloutier is a notoriously dirty goaltender, but he sure did lose it in the 2nd period against the Bruins a few weeks ago...

Look out folks, Ray Emery is on the way up.

Needless to say Ray never made many friends in the OHL and I say with the uttermost confidence that he is the toughest goaltender I have ever seen. I can't count the number of fighting majors he has accumulated over the years. And it's not like he lost these fights either.
