Roy. IMO, Hasek was better in his prime, but he is also a cancer in the dressing room. Patty is a team player, and still one of the most reliable and consistent goalies ever.

Hasek had a higher peak and was a better goaltender in his prime, however Roy easily had the better career, being one of the top goaltenders from his rookie season all the way to the end of his career.

so it honestly depends on how long i'd have this goaltender to backstrop my team.

Will you Patrick Roy supporters switch your "best all-time" vote when Martin Brodeur shatters St. Patrick's records?

Dominik Hasek was to goaltenders what Bobby Orr was to defensemen. But it was communism that kept Hasek from playing longer in the NHL instead of injuries.

Hasek's at his best was the best goaltender. In addition to winning six of eight Vezina Trophies, Hasek also was the MVP for two seasons. He won both the Hart Trophy and the Lester B. Pearson Trophy in both 1996-97 and 1997-98.

Also, the Canadiens teams were not bad. The team went the Wales Conference Finals two years before Roy became a regular in the NHL, losing to the defending Stanley Cup Champion Islanders.

Other way around my friend. Orr is credited with changing the way defencemen played. I see a LOT more goalies copying and varying Roy's butterfly style than I see guys doing Hasek's funky chicken.

Roy is the easy pick here. He communicated better with his defencemen and could handle the puck better as well. His rebound control was better and made the job of his defencemen significantly easier. Both have been known to let in the odd softie here and there, but both are also known to make very improbable if not impossible saves.

ANd people who say Hasek was more intimidating or dominant than Roy should watch the tape of the playoff series versus the Rangers in 86 or the Kings in 93. The mental block those two teams had was so big it was almost visible to spectators.
