bruins4777 Posted November 27, 2004 Share Posted November 27, 2004 Ok i realize most of you will say "brodeur". In fact i myself am saying brodeur. But what i'm really wondering is why you guys want brodeur over roy? Personally my reason is this: Puckhandling and attitude. Although there may be no clutch goalie better than patrick roy, to me Brodeur is the greatest puckhandling goalie ever. His ability to handle the puck changes the entire flow of a game, he can start a rush for a goal with his puckhandling, slow down the game, and do so much more with that incredible puckhandling. As a goalie myself, i think his puckhandling puts him ahead of all goalies, since with it he is able to do so much and to me he is the reason the devils have been the most consistent defensive team of all time and he, not the trap, is the main reason he faces so few shots. Also the fact that he isn't an arrogant prick endears him more to me. I haven't even gotten into his INCREDIBLE poise, which is what puts him ahead of guys like turco, dipietro, and throwback hextall who have/had great puckhandling. Anyways thats my opinion. When you vote can you please say why you'd pick one or the other at their peaks? I just think this will make some interesting discussion.
