Luongo is 30 years old though. I can't see a butterfly goaltender playing at an elite level unti 42 years old. No way. The butterfly is too physically taxing for that.

Has to be a young goalie that has the number 1 position thats playing behind a good team and thats if they want a chance to break it. Maybe Fleury. I dont think anyone on the list can break it to be honest.

You honestly think Luongo will get 110 SO?

Price, Rask, Bernier. Hugely dependent on the D getting better and all the nhl high scoring stars being out of play for about four seasons

But those three are young and have potential. To be fair, Bernier is a bit of a homer vote. Price is there because he's already a starter and has finally started playing like one

But really, I can't see any of them getting there. I'd say wait a generation or two

Just to compare them:

Roberto Luongo is 30 years old, and had 47 shutouts at the end of last season (the season he turned 30.

Martin Brodeur had 55 shutouts by the end of the season he turned 30, and really started racking them up in his first Vezina year (02-03). On top of that, Brodeur lost a year due to th lockout.

So I would say Luongo does have a chance if he gets better later in his career, like Brodeur did, AND if he has the durability of Brodeur.

My guess is that he won't have anywhere near the longevity of Brodeur, due to playing the butterfly.

Brodeur wouldn't have such a massive shutout record if it wasn't for the dead puck era. I don't think any of the players listed are playing at the right time to break the record, however MAF and Miller have the skill too. Bad timing tho.

Luongo would only have to get 110 if Brodeur retired today. Brodeur's gonna have a few more than 110 before he hangs 'em up. There is no one in the league.

Other: None of the above.

It's like picking someone to finish last, whats the point.

We haven't seen the goalie yet who will break this record. I don't think the record is unbreakable, just not in the next 10-20 years.

Keep in mind, Luongo lost a season to the lockout, so he could've had about the same number of shutouts at 30 as Brodeur.

Luongo probably has the best shot at breaking it. It's a longshot however.

Miller and Nabokov don't have a prayer. They're both too far behind and are too old. Luongo has a chance of approaching the record, albiet a very, very slim one.

Luongo may get near Sawchuk and pass him but he'll never pass brodeur who will never retire.

I doubt anyone playing right now will even get 100, but I'd say a younger guy like Mason has the best shot.

Can't wait until the 2030 season when we will see Brodeur get his 206th shutout.

If either comes close, I'll freaking impressed. I voted MAF but I don't think Pittsburgh plays a defensive enough system to get him close.
Those are the guys I was thinking of as well. I don't think they will, but they have the best shot of anyone in the league right now.

If you want to look at current stars, it seems Luongo is the only one statistically in range. Nabokov still doesn't have half as many as Brodeur and he's 34, lol. Luongo isn't quite on pace to beat Brodeur but he has an outside chance. It's going to be hard to ever get the right mix of trap team + defensive era + great goaltender + goaltender with so many starts again.
