  1. Hi Charlie… I voted for other. I went with Dominik Hasek. He played goalie for the Blackhawks, Sabres, RedWings, and Senators.
    Here are some of his top highlights: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RBDm0s2ciuo
    And his stats: http://www.hockey-reference.com/players/h/hasekdo01.html

    He is still leading the record books with a .922 career save percentage. Oh yeah, he also won the Vezina Trophy six times, the Jennings Trophy three times and both the Hart Trophy and Lester B. Pearson Award twice each.

    1. I should have remembered him! He played for Czech Slovakia and won 1 gold medal.4th favorite goalie of all time.

  2. Maybe not the best compared to the technically superior later goalies, but my favorite goalie is Jacques Plante, because he was such an innovator. There may have been others who tried things before him, but he used positional play to cut down the angles, roaming out of the net and poke checking/sweep checking to extend his career and keep forwards guessing what to do to beat him. Plus, he mentored Bernie Parent!
