    Parent should be #2 behind Dryden.

    Give me the clutch Cheevers over Vachon, Giacomin, Espo and Tretiak.

    If you include Tretiak you definitely have to include Holecek and Dzurilla.

    Phil and JFF beat me to it. When it comes to goalies, give me the clutch guys. When the crap hits the fan, I need to know that I can depend on a guy.

    I would take Durnan over Broda in the regular season. I would take Broda over Durnan in the playoffs. Thus, I want Broda.

    I would take Esposito over Parent and Cheevers in the regular season. I would take Parent and Cheevers over Espo in the playoffs. I think Parent is much higher than Espo, I would have a very hard time deciding between Cheevers and Espo.

    Giacomin is the best goalie to never win a Cup.

    Why do I have Hasek rated behind Plante, Roy and Sawchuk. I know I can depend on those three guys when the game matters most. Hasek? I don't know. If he plays, he's great. But I don't know if he'll play, and I don't if he'll play even if he's healthy. Hasek is likely the best regular season goalie ever. But the regular season pales in importance compared to the playoffs, especially for goalies.

    I really don`t do that division between play off and regular season. I think if you are great, you are great in the play offs as well. But even taken this into consideration, I would take Hasek in the play offs as well. He nearly stole a cup all by himself. Something Sawchuk for instance (and I really hold him very high) never had to do or did.

    I think Sawchuk stole the 67 cup for the Leafs.

    Does 95-now only include active goalies? Cuz that still includes 2 cup wins by Roy and a crapload of 30+ win seasons.
