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.
