Okay first, I love Howard and I don't blame the series loss on him at all.. I want to stick with him and give him another shot. But just wondering if you could have someone else would you take Quick or Rinne? I know there are other great goalies out there (Vokoun, Brodeur, Lundqvist, Miller, etc.) but right now these are the two young guns that come to my mind. I'm just wondering if you had your pick which one would it be? Or would it be one of the older, more established guys out there? Quick seems to play a little like Legace, he gets so low to see the puck between the legs and Rinne does the opposite, he looks high over the shooter's shoulders then gets low to make the saves. Quick - a little more athletic, Rinne a bit more positional. I like Rinne's size but I like Quick's.. err quickness... heh... any thoughts?

If it was anyone other than Howard, I'm down with the Quickness!

I like this team.

Think for yourself. Question authority. Throughout human history as our species has faced the frightening, terrorizing fact that we do not know who we are or where we are going in this ocean of chance, it has been the authorities, the political, the religious, the educational authorities who attempted to comfort us by giving us order, rules, regulations, informing, forming in our minds their view of reality. To think for yourself you must question authority and learn how to put yourself in a state of vulnerable, open mindedness, chaotic, confused vulnerability to inform yourself.

Rinne. He moves the puck better than half our current defense.

For me, it would depend on the makeup of the rest of the team. If it was our current roster, I'd rather have the money spent on upgrading the D and getting a goal scorer rather than using the extra millions on goaltending (Rinne, I don't know what Quick makes). Howard was one of the top goalies in the league before his injury, and I think he'll be right there again next year. So I would choose to stand pat with Howie.

Quick in a heart beat. Although I would be just as happy with Rinne.

I'd take Howard over them.

Get Rinne out of Nashville and he could be a Bryzgalov.

Put Mike Smith on Phoenix and he's a Conn Smythe candidate all of a sudden

Brian Elliot was going team to team before Hitchcock and the Blues.

Goalies are so reliant on the team in front of them I find it funny when people actually think there is a definitive number one guy since Hasek.

Im taking Rinne and it's honestly because he's a damn beast at 6'5. Quick is awesome though and they are two of the top guys right now. I also believe Howard IS in the discussion with these guys, he didnt save the series which is his only faux pas imho. Prior to this Howard has matched up to these two very well, I look forward to a healthy Howard again. Sorry got off topic there, again I pick Pekka Rinne...

I love how when you mentioned that there were other good goalies you mentioned brodeur vokoun and miller. Instead of people like; elliott, halak, fleury, luongo, Schneider.

Maybe my taste in goalies is different than yours haha

Anyway, I would pick quick because I like him better. Rinne is just as good though

Good rule of thumb is always take an octopus everywhere. Better to have one and not need it than find yourself thinking, "Damn, I wish I had that octopus".

Howard has never beaten any goalie not named Bryzgalov in a playoff series. Until then, he'll have his critics.

I'd take Rinne because of his size and consistency. I think he's better than Quick in that respect.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

I love Rinne's aggressiveness. He's in the #2 spot among goalies for me, just in front of Quick and just behind Lundqvist.

I mentioned those because they're more established not due to any preference...

This isn't so much about who's better, it's about who would you like to see? Selfishly I'd say Quick because he's more acrobatic and atheltic, if I were coming from a view of who's going to give more wins I'd give Rinne the (slight) edge. If this were a carte blanche who do you want as the best #1 I'd probably steal Henrik away from NY.

How about Howard with Weber and Suter in front of him?

rinne is one of the best goaltenders i've seen in a long time.....though quick is quiteeeeee proficient. would love to have either of them but rinne gets the slight advantage.

Quick is shinning this year, but wow Rinne has slowly become one of the top goalies in this league you cant go wrong with either one so to me it comes down to the system

run and gun its Quick
laid back Rinne

May you lace them up in heaven forever!

Rinne's been with the same coach his entire NHL career and that guy happens to be someone who consistently manages elite defensive systems. Quick's had a variety of coaches and been strong (overall) with all of them. It's hard to really know how Rinne would perform with a different system (that's my only reservation with him).

I'd take Quick if I had to choose. Rinne is good, but it's his size more than anything else. I think Quick plays a better game, has better positioning.

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.
