2 Stanley Cups & 2 Vezina's & would have had more wins if not for a freak eye injury. People say that the Flyers & The Broad Street Bullies Gooned their way to those 2 Cups in '74 & '75, but it was his net minding that was the REAL DIFFERENCE! Also if he is not hurt in '76 Cup Finals it might have been 3 Straight Cups!

23Tony Esposito

Best goalie ever consider the amount of shots on net and team in front of him he was a star

I can't believe he's not on this list.

24Curtis Joseph

The most charismatic and probably the friendliest goalie ever. A great person and an idol!

Maybe not the best but he has to be considered a top 20 goaltender

A great athlete! Always exemplary on the ice and in his life!

A pride for the team Canada and our country!

25Jonathan QuickJonathan Douglas Quick is an American professional ice hockey goaltender currently playing for the Los Angeles Kings of the National Hockey League.

I know he only started but he did good on a sucky team for a while

One of the best goalies because he blocks those big saves

Also deserves to be higher then ben bishop and rinne

Punk goalie disgrace to the NHL

He is a fantastic keeper! He has a very special Butterflystyle and he can win games for his team!

28Evgeni Nabokov

Amazing netminder. The worst mistake the Sharks ever made was getting rid of him. - Shake_n_Bake13

Best goalie ever! He, patrick marleu, and jonathan chechoo led the sharks to the most glorious years ever! Now he's doing great on the Islanders, but Sharks are still my favorite. Enough said B-)

Why is Bernier even a newcomer? He's trash

40Bill Durnan

Montreal Canadian Hall of Fame Netminder. In his short 7 year career he earned 6 Vezina Awards, Two Stanley Cups, wore the C for a year (until the NHL made a rule called the Durnan rule barring goalies from captioning teams because teams were complaining that every time Durnan left the net to argue a call it was effectively giving his team the equivalent of a time out.) Set the record for consecutive shutouts from Feb. 26, to Mar. 6, 1949 and, held that record until it was broken in 2004 by Brian Boucher. Let me add that his first 4 Vezinas were consecutive. First Team-All Star 6 times. In his first two seasons with Montreal he won 38 of 50 games in both seasons in itself an amazing feat. If he could have continued to play in the NHL I can't imagine what records he would have set but, as we all know "If only" just doesn't matter when it comes to stats. However the hockey world knows a great when it sees one. Inducted into the HHOF in 1964 Durnan is one of the forgotten greats. Known ...more
