Jimmy Howard is the leading vote getter? That is just crazy! I chose Luongo without even having to think about it. Howard wouldn't even be on my list!

RIght now? Either Luongo or Lundqvist. I like the nods that Jimmy's getting, but I don't think he's a franchise goaltender just yet.

Nice to see Jimmy getting the mention! However, I would have to say Lundqvist because he has proven he can lead the Rangers when needed and Luongo just seems to flake out in the playoffs
HEY HEY HOCKEYTOWN!

Where the heck is Miller?

I'd say either him, Lundqvist, or Howard. Why Howard in with those two? I don't know if he's as good, but the Wings org builds winners.

Luongo, nope. Several goalies I take over him. Brodeur? Too old to build around, and having a poor start to the year.
If some bored artist wants to make me a signature, feel free to cut loose and do so.

Of course, I could get off my lame rear and do something.

This is why Howard is getting so many votes, if the question were phrased differently, such as what goalie would you take this year to win a Stanley Cup I think that the votes would be very different. Howard is the youngest and shows promise, making him a good building block. Miller would probably be my first choice.

What kind of color is red? Red is a warning, a declaration, a color that says I'm ready to do what it takes. Red is focused and driven because red doesn't like second place. So what kind of color is red? Their kind.

When I read the question I instantly thought Miller. Then when I went to NHL.com I was blown away he wasn't on the list. As good as Brodeur is (obviously) if you're building a team around a goalie (to me that implies long term) he shouldnt even be on this list. Miller all the way

If it were based on this years stats Tim Thomas would be my pick. 0.75 GAA, only 3 goals allowed and 4-0 record. If not based on this years stats then I'd pick Bryzgalov or Howard. Just 2 goalies I happen to be a fan of.

Lundqvist, Luongo, or Miller would be my picks.


Jimmy is still settling in. I'd maybe put him as backup on a custom built team. I have been worried for a long time about his past tendency for streakiness, but that is fading with time.

I wonder if the mass amount of Red Wings fans, I've seen polls that 10% of American hockey fans are Wings fans, are effecting the voting. Out of that list, I too would take Lundqvist, then Howard second. Brodeur can't win a playoff series anymore, and Kipper and Luongo can't win in the playoffs either. Also Luongo takes to much cap space.

As some already mentioned, I would have picked Miller if he was on the list. I guess I should pick "Other".

I'd think I'd take Kipper over Howard.... he's been the backbone in Calgary for years. I don't think there is a goalie in the league right now that has been ridden as hard for as long a Kipper has. On a good team he would be lights out!

Agree with Lundqvist over Luongo, and also agree that I'd go with Miller if he were on the poll. Jimmy likes to give me a heart attack now and then, but I'd probably pick him second after Lundqvist out of the choices on the poll.

Does this take into account Cap considerations?

If I'm building a team, I'm sure as hell not putting 7 mil into my goalie when there are many perfectly capable goalies available for a third of that price.

I'm going with the Wings system of signing goalies.

No one.

In today's era, goalies are overrated. Some of the biggest name goalies suck in the playoffs, while faceless jobbers are playing in the Cup Finals.

Just about every team is finding good goalies out of the minors no one has ever heard of, and those goalies are doing just fine. If I was building a team, I'd concentrate on everything else first, and then the goalie.

The days of needing a Hasek, Roy, Brodeur, Belfour, etc. to win the Cup ended after the lockout.

Funny how so many people mentioned Luongo, who hasn't made Vancouver a shred better since he got there, and Brodeur, who hasn't had a good playoff since 2003.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Weird, I voted on this today around lunch time when I was at work, so like noonish. Howard wasn't even a choice... All the others that are in the thumbnail above were still on there but instead of Howard they had Antti Niemi.

Luongo, honestly, I find the most overrated goalie in the league. My personal choice would definately be Miller of Lundquist, and I have to say, Im really surprised that Howard is on the list, let alone leading... But I'm definately happy about it

wingsalltheway.jpg



Pavel datsyuk is the best player in the world because he snatches the puck from unsuspecting players and  follows it up by the simultaneous undressing of the defence pairing. The goalie then gives up, and flops like a fish. The end result is a calm skate back to his bench  where he can bask in the praise of his multiple girlfriends from the motherland.

Red Wings fans are voting for Howard because he is there, but the correct answer is King Henrik, and its not even close.


If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

How is it not even close?

The question is "Who would you build a team around?" Not "who is your favorite goalie?" "Who is the best goalie?" or "who wears the most absurdly gigantic pads?"


When building a franchise, as the question states, other things need to be taken into consideration, such as cap hit. Lunk is making almost 7 million a year. If I'm a GM and building a team, there is no way in hell I pay 7 million for ANY goalie, let alone one who has never had any success in the playoffs.

As I already wrote in this thread, there are too many goalies available for 1-2 million that are perfectly capable starters.

I think it's FANTASTIC that Jimmy's leading, and not far fetched to me at all. I find it odd how many people still love Luongo when time and time again proves to be, how shall I say, meh! Has let down Van in the playoffs more then once, and before anyone talks Gold, Ozzy would have won gold with that team.

Sorry I didn't mean to make this a Lou hate thread...To me it would Howard or Miller.
