Yzerman was awesome! I am more surprised that IGOR LARIONOV has not been mentioned!

I ****ing despise Patrick Roy and butterfly-style was not my thing anyways. Luongo and Turco have done nothing...although Turco went to UofM so he's halfways cool. Beezer was solid but not the greatest. The rest are legendary but still not my favorites. Actually I was thinking about putting Esposito up there but meh.

*shudders at the thought of someone having Roberto Luongo as a favorite player over any of the other goalies on that list*

jrmontag, why do you hate the butterfly-style? One of the best things to happen to hockey in my opinion, and by the way, Roy is the best goaltender of all time (argueably, though I think there is no arguement).

I think it looks ridiculous when they are crawling around on the ice like that...

Who cares how it looks? Its effective if you can utilize the style correctly.

I assume you despise him seeing that youre a Wangs fan. Am I correct? Or are you one of the many who were disgusted by his son's antics earlier this year and have now decided to despise Patrick as well. Now, I dont agree with what his son did, nor the assumption that Patrick encouraged Jonathan to go attack the other goalie, but you cant deny that Patrick was probably the greatest goalie of our times, if not ever.

There are at least two still playing that I think are better! One is in Detroit and the other is in New Jersey!

A good goalie should stand in the right position to cover as much of the goal as possible to avoid the situations where he lies on the ice waving with arms and legs to stop the puck.
Plus he should stay in the crease and not run around the goal when the opposing team is attacking.

I'll take the two guys we have in Detroit right now.

My most lasting memory of Roy is when the Wings beat the Avs 7-0 in the playoffs a few years ago ... Roy gets yanked and probably goes off to cry on the bench for a while. Man, that was a good feeling.
