I was about to bring up the same thing. I don't think you can have a "Best Goalie of All Time" poll without including Glenn Hall, Terry Sawchuk, and Jacques Plante amoung others.
"Best of the Last Generation," I went with Brodeur.


Well, I could put those guys in...but does anyone actually think they were better goalies than these three? Braver - standing in front of the net with no facial protection is insane - but better? There was no technique to their games and Did they really stand out compared to their peers? Not as many peers makes it a harder comparison maybe, but they didn't put up numbers like these guys did.

Goaltending, to me, has come further than any other position in the game, so it makes it a lot harder to give the guys who played in the 50s and 60s similar comparisons to guys from today. Bobby Orr was dominant any put up numbers that were stunning next to all the defencemen he played with. Was there any goalies you could say the same for?
