1 Brodeur
2. Luongo

3. All the rest mentionned above

I also think Ryan Miller is undervalued here.. he should be in top 5-6

1. Martin Brodeur, N.J. 113 (15-12-2);
2. Evgeni Nabokov, S.J. 106 (13-13-2);
3. Henrik Lundqvist. NYR 13 (1-0-8);
4. J.S. Giguere, ANA 11 (0-1-8);
5. Miikka Kiprusoff, CGY 7 (1-0-2);
6. Niklas Backstrom, MIN 6 (0-2-0);
7. Roberto Luongo, VAN 5 (0-1-2);
8. Cristobal Huet, WSH 4 (0-1-1);
9. Carey Price, MTL 2 (0-0-2);
10. Tim Thomas, BOS 2 (0-0-2);
11. Chris Osgood, DET 1 (0-0-1)


But there has been a presedent set for this....

1996-97 2nd in Vezina Voting
Dominik Hasek 120 (22-3-1);
Martin Brodeur 73 (3-18-4);
Patrick Roy 25 (1-3-11);
Guy Hebert 10 (0-2-4);
Curtis Joseph 2 (0-0-2);
Mike Richter 2 (0-0-2);
Andy Moog 1 (0-0-1);
John Vanbiesbrouck 1 (0-0-1)

Brodeur's Final Stats in 1996-97

NJ 67 64 37 wins - 1.88 GAA - .927 Save% 10 Shutouts

Hasek's Final Stats in 1996-97
BUF 67 66 37 wins - 2.27 GAA .930 Save% 5 Shutouts

I would suggest these results were far more tougher to accept than Nabokov's
That in itself should show you why the voting is ****ed up! Price gets votes and he didn't even play a full season. Huet is good but Turco had a lot better season as he does year after year. Its typical crap to overlook a goal that may not happen to fall in the so called "Traditional Market".

But i like Luongo.

That implies that Osgood comes above Vancouver and New Jersey's tenders.
