Goalies, Take Your Pads Off

via Sports Illustrated,

Which goalie could drop the pads and skate a shift if needed?

Mike Smith, Coyotes 19%
Martin Brodeur, Devils 17%
Pekka Rinne, Predators 9%
Carey Price, Canadiens 8%
Ray Emery, Blackhawks 5%


Smith can clearly do it all: In his first professional win, with the ECHL Lexington Men-O-War, he had a shutout and scored a goal. Less than a month later he received a fighting major… . Brodeur is one of only two NHL goalies to have scored a goal in the regular season and in the playoffs… . In a similar poll on Facebook, fans ranked Brodeur (54%) first, ahead of the Penguins’ Marc-Andre Fleury (15%).
