Off this list, figured this is the top 15 in the NHL.

This is the kind of question you should be asking actual NHLers.

Garon..

From that list, I'll say Turco. From what I've seen, its extremely hard to deke against him..

If we go by shootout winning, Theodore and Roloson are tops.

But I think I'll say Lundqvist. He's quite good in the shootout as well.

Brodeur I believe has the most shootout wins and one of the highest shootout save percentages, so I will go with him.

This should really be two separate polls: Who is.....breakaways and Who is.....shootouts.

2 years ago it took 24 shooters to finally score on lundqvist (3 to 4 people per shootout)
Last year we had an insane amount of shootout wins aswell.

Hardest poll to vote on. Would have to see tons of shootouts for all goalies... don't think many of us are qualified here. I'm abstaining, but if I had to pick... I'll stick with a safe bet - Brodeur.

Lundqvist has some disgusting numbers and high amount of shootouts to boot.

Don't know about shootouts, but simply from watching the vast majority of Flames games last season and this, I never panic when there is a breakaway or a 2-on-0/2-on-1 with Kiprusoff in net, he seems to always make the save.

A knowledgeable hockey fan would say Garon. He had like 13 consecutive wins and something like a 90% save percentage over a full season. Too bad for him the shootout isn't real hockey, and he isn't to good at that.

100 is pretty arbitrary and a bit high, given that in a busy year a goalie faces 30 to 40 shots. 100 means you're taking a big sample (which is good), but probably including stats from 3 years ago (thus penalizing younger goalies to an extent). I suggest that 60 (a good, solid 2 seasons' worth) is probably good enough:

Hedberg 67 0.821
Garon 75 0.813
Theodore 64 0.766
Lundqvist 179 0.760
Thomas 136 0.750
Dipietro 106 0.745
Lehtonen 90 0.744
Fleury 77 0.740
Miller 146 0.740
Luongo 143 0.720
Price 71 0.718
Brodeur 170 0.718

Which probably represents the actual "currently best" goalies in the shootout a bit better, imo, although I didn't actually compile their records for the most recent 60+ shots like I should have.

Sorry, but he's not a top-15 goalie.

I see your grade 1 reading level didn't get you past the thread title, nor the poll question. Thomas is certainly top 15 at stopping pucks in the shootout... injuries, etc notwithstanding of course (he's still 11 of 13 this year btw, 11th among ALL goalies). Although neither Sonny nor I actually listed 15, funny enough (I noticed, but didn't bother).

No, my grade 1 reading level read the question and I read the title. Thomas is a top-15 goalie at stopping breakaways and he's top-15 in the shot out.

Thank you for your 12-year-girl insults though. I lover internet tough guys.

So, what memo did I miss then, again, non-12-year-old-girl insult non-internet-tough-guy?

Ya this poll is in rough shape. It's missing a lot of good shootout/breakaway goalies - like Garon, who would have been my pick.
