Save of 2008

From Jan 1st, 2008 - December 31st 2008.

Keep all videos/photos from this year only.

- Carey Price
- Evgeni Nabokov
- Ryan Miller.

Feel free to add more as i didn't have time to find them all. Please no compilations as they don't do justice majority of the time.

Oh man, it's very tough to choose out of those 3. Good choices ForzaHabs.

Amongst those 3, clearly Price is #3. Had more time to react due the quality of the shot. Tough to choose between Nabokov and Miller. I would go with Nabokov 'cause Richards shot was a great and hard one.

Miller all the way on that one, he had him beat... well not really

I'd say

1) Miller
2) Price
3) Nabokov

The Nabokov one is nice but it's a glove save that was close to the line, to me that doesn't beat a backwards batting of a puck or the equivalent of a 3 on 0 tic tac toe and somehow the goalie manages to make the save.

Miller ALLLLLLLL the way on that one imo.

Nabokov... the save was awesome but considering it was in OT in a playoff game makes it even more disgusting.

Looking at them outside the context of the game and just considering the save alone, it's Miller.

But if you consider the context of each game, it's Nabokov. That was overtime in the playoffs and Brad freaking Richards, a Conn Smythe winner, had a wide open net. I remember watching the game in bed (I had to work the next day at 7 and really should have been asleep) and just could not believe my eyes.

Exactly. Nabokov by far, for the same reason.

Nabokov goes behind his net, panic and give up the puck, comes back to make a save, gives a fat rebound then make the ultimate save. It reminds me of street hockey.

Nabokov, Price, Miller. Nabokov was just unreal. Price for the athleticism (maybe some luck too) and miller I'm not overly impressed like i was with the other two, but still a damn good save. Nice list.

I should have named the thread, "Best Saves of 2008."

I'd say:

1)Price - the fact he knew exactly where the puck was and the fact everyone thought it went in.
2)Miller - he read that play like it was a 1 page book.
3)Nabokov - great stretch to save that puck and to keep his hand over the line.

Nabokov| Miller. Miler's was awesome, Nabokov's was huge and in the playoffs.

Price's was nice, but the puck would have gone wide, had he and Holmstrom missed it, but still the fact that he hit it, is amazing.

People talk about exciting players in the game, how about nabokov? He's a goalie but damn he's exciting to watch.
