ward won a cup mvp
quick won a cup mvp
both those goalies are the reasons they won the cup and stole series for them ... howards won nothing
rinne is the only reason nashville even competes and price is just starting off but hes a future star
your thinking with your heart not your head
I find that ironic when I posted numbers. A goalie can only do so much, did you hold it against Hasek for 8 years before he won?
Fact is goalies in this league don't stay elite for long, Miller was amazing for a couple years, Luongo was briliant for a long time, Thomas put up ridiculous numbers, every Phoenix goalie puts up numbers. etc. Elite goalies are a rare commodity, and I'd venture to say their may not be an "elite" goalie ala Hasek, Roy, Brodeur playing right now.
It really depends on your definition, if all it takes is a good cup run to be elite then Fleury should be in their, along with Neimi, Thomas, Giguere. But if a goalie can't be elite without winning in the playoffs then you are leaving out a ton of great goalies.
