Well said, agree with this.
In one game? I'd take Roy for sure, but to build a franchise I'd take Marty.
What's also great about the three of them is that they were all so DIFFERENT in their approaches (butterfly guy, hybrid puckhandler, and stop-the-puck any way possible), but they all had success. And they each stood out in their own way...even their personalities were so diverse. The goalies now, even the good ones, seem to all be so blah...almost faceless...there's nothing about them that stand out, and it seems like when a current goalie DOES get noticed, it's not for the best of reasons (Luongo, Bryzgalov). So many butterfly-types these days, with some being better at it than others. The Big Three will be remembered throughout the league for years and years. Guys like Lundqvist, terrific as they are, seem like they're only going to be remembered mostly by their individual franchises and fanbases...in Lundqvist's case, if he can carry his team to a Cup or two, that could change though.
