50 Greatest Goaltenders in NHL History
Goaltenders are a different breed.
Let’s face it, you’ve got to be different to play the most unique position in all of sports. But as eccentric or as quirky as some goalies may be, they all share a common trait of competitive courage. After all, the very notion of stopping a vulcanized rubber disc traveling at speeds exceeding 100 mph defines the lack of fear.
It is a miracle that no one has ever lost their life playing this position, especially in an age where goalie equipment had the protective properties of soggy cardboard.
The position in and of itself is also unique in that it’s often the wild card to the equation of competition, especially in the playoffs. It can single-handedly decide the outcome of the game for better or worse, against any foe or strategy.
So in ranking these goaltenders, I found that defining greatness in these men was also a very different challenge.
After all, what qualified you to be great? Championships? Statistics? Individual accomplishments?
In a sport with such a long-and-storied history and many different eras of play, it wasn’t easy. Of course, it stands to reason that many will disagree with this list, given the difficulty of evaluating the position.
Whether you agree or disagree with any of the selections, I hope you enjoy reading as much as I’ve enjoyed writing it. If you have any changes or different ideas to where these NHL goalies should rank, let me know!
This article was originally submitted by me to Bleacher Report on May, 6th, 2011.
During the writeup of this article, at least 10 different players have occupied the 50th slot at one point or another. Marc-Andre Fleury, Felix Potvin, Dwayne Roloson, Nikolai Khabibulin and even Andy Moog were just a few of the names deserving of mention.
Oddly enough, this slot was the most difficult to nail down on this list, but Jose Theodore deserves this position.
Posting a .931 save percentage in the 2001-2002 season, Theodore backed the Montreal Canadiens to a 36-31-12 record. His brilliant play late in the season powered a Montreal surge that brought the Canadiens back to the playoffs for the first time since 1998.
Theodore edged Patrick Roy for the Vezina and won the Hart, despite St. Patrick’s 1.94 goals-against average and nine shutouts in the regular season.
Winning the Vezina on the strength of first place votes, Theodore joins rare company as a goaltender to have won both the Vezina and Hart trophies in the same year.
His career failed to live up to that standard, however, as injuries and inconsistency have plagued his career post-lockout.
Inside the Numbers: 1 Hart trophy, 1 Vezina trophy, 1 Roger Crozier trophy, 1 Masterton trophy, 2 All-Star games
