Goal Line Report

Who’s Better?

When it comes to goaltenders in the National Hockey League, a few names come to mind: Jacques Plante, Terry Sawchuk, Glenn Hall, Tony Esposito, Johnny Bower, Grant Fuhr, Dominik Hasek, etc.

However, in the minds of most hockey fans, only two names really stand out above the rest: Patrick Roy and Martin Brodeur.

Instead of rambling on about how great these two netminders are on the night that Patrick Roy gets his number retired in Montreal, I figured I would make this open forum for you folks and you can cooment on who you think is better.

Good luck!
