5 Scott Gordon
6 Don McLeod

Ol' Club Foot Smokey

7 Jarmo Myllys
8 Ken McAuley

McAuley was involved in a 15-0 loss to Detroit. While he may have been good on the battlefield, he wasn't so good on the ice rink. - Canuck101

9 Gordon Laxton
10 Bob Champoux

The Newcomers

? Antti Niemi

He is absolutely the worst goalie, to ever walk on this earth. His contract was trashed by the penguins because he was so BAD.

? Brian Elliott

He gave up 8 goals in the 2017 playoffs, this guys sucks. Why do NHL teams offer this guy contracts, Alex Lyon his backup is better than him.

The Contenders

11 Henrik Lundqvist Henrik Lundqvist Henrik Lundqvist is a Swedish professional ice hockey goaltender for the New York Rangers of the National Hockey League.

He is one of the best goalies in the league!

Whenever a player goes topshelf all he does is sit and spread his legs he's a failure

I agree just speads his legs and fails besides he can't be the king if he flips over the net every game

12 Howard Lockhart
13 José Theodore

Come on! He is terrible! If it wasn't because of the offense of when he played in Montreal, Colorado, Washington, Minnesota and Florida, he wouldn't even be still in the NHL! He is so bad, cristobal huet is so much better!

After the 2004-05 lockout, the NHL put limiations on the size of goalie equipment, this is when Theodore's career started going downhill, but the last few years before the lockout, he was right up there with the best.

14 Martin Brodeur

One of the best goalies of all time

What?!? How is he on here best g ever and that's not because I'm a fan he has the most wins!

15 Ilya Bryzgalov

He can't save anything

It's only a game. Why you heff to be mad?

16 Mike Condon

I totally agree

17 Steve Mason

As a die-hard Flyers fan he just flat-out sucks. - manningfan23

18 Andre Racicot

With a name like, "Red Light" how'd you not see him on the list earlier?! 68 NHL games and never had a season with a save percentage over 9! He played for 20 pro teams, which cries no one wanted him for long. - cws480

19 Evgeni Nabokov
20 Steve Buzinski

He's called the Puck goes in ski for a reason

21 Jon Casey
22 Andrew Raycroft
