The perfect goalie

The Perfect Goalie as presented by The Hockey News March 2nd issue.

1. Glove (Martin Brodeur)
2. Stick (Martin Brodeur)
3. Brain ( Henrik Lundqvist)
4. Legs (Roberto Luongo)
5. Shoulders (Roberto Lunogo)
6. Flexibility (Mikka Kiprusoff)
7. Eyes (Mikka Kiprusoff)
8. Size (Steve Mason)
9. Athleticism (Marty Turco)
10. Blocker (Tomas Vokoun)
12. Feet (Evgeni Nabokov)

This is according to the Hockey News. If you think they placed the wrong goalie beside a category please tell me the goalie you prefer and why he should be in that category.

The Hockey News did mention stickhandling by calling the category stick instead of stickhandling.

In the article Brodeur won by one vote over Turco.

I would suppose it either refers to the ability of a goalie to bounce back from a bad goal or to carry a team. I might be totally mistaken here, though.

I have no idea what spine means, but this is what the article said.

The NHL rulebook prevents Roberto Luongo from wearing 'C' and fulfilling the on-ice duties of a captain. but that didn't stop the Vancouver Canucks from making him their offical leader this season.
By their nature, elite goaltenders are among the leaders on any team, but Luongo had embraced his role as captain of the Canucks and takes his duties quite seriously.
Much of Luongo's leadership comes from his play on the ice and his ability to carry his team , but it also has something to do with a superstitious nature that doesn't allow him to miss a single workout, even an optional one.
Some might think a No. 1 goalie who plays the Vast majority of his team's games when he's healthy might have enough to worry about already, but it hasn't apppeared to affect Luongo.
"He practices longer and harder than just about anyone I've seen," said Rogers Sportsnet analyst John Garrett. "He's at every optional practice. There are days when the five guys who never play are out there and they're shooting on Luongo. There are times at home when he's out 45 minutes ahead of everybody else."
If you can't get Luongo...take Marty Turco.

I got the Hockey News for Christmas and it is a good issue. Just wish they could somwhow have a category of goalies who best challenge the shooter... think Kipper would be at or near the top of that along with Bobby Lu.
