Greatest goalie? There are just too many to pick from, hard to say specifically who the "greatest" is. Break it down by eras. Heres a few great ones (of many!):

Glenn Hall
Tony Esposito
Bernie Parent
Ken Dryden
Johnny Bower
Terry Sawchuck
Billy Smith
George Vezina (even named a trophy after him!)
Patrick Roy
Marty Brodeur

and on and on..............

I guess I would have to go with Ken Dryden. It's hard to pick.

The only reason Roy was good, had nothing to do with ability, it was all about the size of his equipment, I mean everything was over sized!!! Why do you think he retired? He knew they were coming in with smaller everything.

I'd have to say Patrick Roy, but I've always been a Mike Vernon fan. Right now Kiprusoff is the best... stats! No bias!

Along with Plante, Dryden, Brodeur, Roy, Sawchuck, I'd say Vladislav Tretiak.
He was my favorite goalie growing up.

What are you talking about!!!?:eek: 4 Cups 3 Conn Smyths all those vezina's. Roy's best years were in Montreal. Don't you remember the size he was back then. I agree in his last years in Colorado he was pretty big. But even then you can't say that about Roy. You can say that about a guy like Lalime or of Giguere and even more Garth Snow , but not Roy!
