Mine are

1.Brodeur
2.Luongo
3.Belfour
4.Theodore
5.Turco

I don't understand how you could even think of taking Luongo over Belfour right now....maybe in a couple years but right now Belfour is definetly the more consistent of the 2.

Overall:
1)Brodeur
2)Belfour
3)Theodore
4)Lalime
5)Khabibulin

At this current moment:
1)Brodeur
2)Boucher
3)Theodore
4)Belfour
5)Biron

Basically, since Hasek is done(yeah I said DONE) and Roy is gone, there aren't many playoff proven goalies around, so I see no problem in having last years Conn Smythe winner as the # 4 ranked goalie. He's done more in post season play then Theodore.

What does Roloson have to do to get some respect? He's playing on a pitiful team (Gaborik isn't scoring, hell their enforcer JOHNSON has more goals than Gaborik) but still putting up respectable numbers.

Dunham? He is average at best. He had a good half season after he got traded and that's it. Rangers fans are telling me that they want Jussi Markannen, a guy they got for a compensation pick, starting their games instead.

I think Duane Roloson's main problem is that there is a Manny Fernandez on the same team, who plays about as much and puts up similar numbers.

Roloson - 25 games played
Fernandez - 21 games played

I will agree that Roloson's numbers are great, and he might be able to replicate them with a full work load, but you can't rank him with guys like Brodeur and Lunongo until he plays more.

This year he isn't doing so well because he's lost his skills (his oversized equipment).

you mean the guy that's played 16 games this year? How about Corey Schwab?

...Unless of course you were mentioning him as a sarcastic response to the Roloson nomination. In which case I hang my head in shame.

I have one question, why is Boucher being consider as a great goalie currently when he has only played 13 games this year? Or Kipper who has played 16 games?

Also Roloson isn't playing the same as Fernandez look at the stats:

Roloson 25 GP 1.84 GAA, 674 SA, SV 630, SV% .935 2 SO
Fernandez 21 GP 2.33 GAA, 574 SA, SV 528 SV% .920, 1 SO

They've seen around the same amount of shots (27) but Fernandez has given up more goals than Roloson, almost half a goal more, which is extremely important for the Wild.

Probably because he has posted 5 consecutive shutouts and he ain't done yet!
