HFBoards TOP 40 ranking: Goaltenders #17

Now that the season and playoffs are over, I thought we'd do an "HFBoards ranking" for each position.

So basically, who (of the following) is the best goalie in the NHL? ie. which goalie would you want on your team for next year only? (independent of their respective salary)

Vote away.

Ranking so far

1. Luongo
2. Brodeur
3. Lundqvist
4. Backstrom
5. Nabokov
6. Thomas
7. Ward
8. Fleury
9. Vokoun
10. Miller

11. Kiprusoff
12. S.Mason
13. Turco
14. Giguere
15. DiPietro
16. Khabibulin

In reply to my statement in the #16 thread:

Yes, I was saying Lehtonen deserves the #8 spot more than Fleury. My - I admit it, not very creative - reasoning behind that would be because Kari Lehtonen is the better goaltender. It's great that Fleury has won a cup and everything, people tend to give single players credit for team efforts. Fleury has been playing on a good to great team while Lehtonen was in net for one of the league's weakest teams for many years - yet, I may quote:

lehtonen's pretty gangster so he wants to stay in atlanta

the second atlanta is good for more than a year at a time everyone will realize that his numbers suck from playing on an all offensive/bad team
