It's all subjective who the best goalie is. If you want records here they are: Most Shut-Outs by a goalie 103 held by Terry Sawchuk over a 21 season career. Most Games played by a goalie 1029 held by Patrick Roy. Most wins by a goalie held by Patrick Roy. Most minutes played by a goaltender, career: Patrick Roy, 60235 Longest undefeated streak in one season 32 held by Gerry Cheevers. Most consecutive 30 or more wins in one season held by Martin Brodeur. Most consecutive 35 or more wins in one season held by Martin Brodeur. Most consecutive 40 or more wins in one season held by Martin Brodeur. So just from the records you could say that Terry Sawchuk, Patrick Roy, Gerry Cheevers and Martin Brodeur are the all time goalies in the NHL. But if you ask any fan of hockey they will tell you who their favorite goalie is. Like I said, it's all subjective.
Patrick Kane is perhaps the next big US Hockey star.
Mike Modano, Chris Chelios and Jeremy Roenick are just a few, but this list will continue to grow every year.
The list of the greatest American hockey players of all time would include Mike Modano, Chris Chelios, and Jeremy Roenick for sure but dont forget Brian Leech, Chris Drury, Tony Amonte, and Brett Hull could be considered and American hockey player since he played for team USA. Although he wasnt born in the US. Mike Richter would be one the great US goalies.
Todays greats would have to be Patrick Kane, Zach Parise, Ryan Kesler, Jack Johnson, Ryan Miller, Brian Rafalski, Brian Gionta, Phil Kessel, and Joe Pavelski just to name a few. USA hockey has come a long long way since the good old days!
Wayne Gretzsky is the greatest player in Canada so far, but other people especially the ones who are were playing in the Olympics in 2010 especially Sidney Crosby to score that goal against their second time for the gold medal.The greatest player off all time is Bobby Orr-I have seen them all-Richard, Howe, Hull, Gretzky, Lemieux, Crosby and Orr is the best. He changed the game of hockey and the way defenseman play the game. He was the best skater, passer, shooter and he was tougher and fought more than Gretzky ever did. He had many different speeds and could move side to side better than anyone who played the game. All in 9 years only and 1 full season only due to injuries. By the way-you spelled Gretzky's name wrong!!!!I suggest you go to you tube and check out the video entitled "Catch me if you can" Then you will see who the Greatest off all time is!!!
Bobby Orr, Gordie Howe, Henri Richard and Wayne Gretzky are a few.

There are goalies that have scored on the other goalie. the rink is 200ft long, so it's just under 200ft (at the most).
Best answer is... Depends... Some come right out of Junior and others take a long time (Tim Thomas for example) There really is no absolute answer. Ok... Between 18 and 40.
An NHL team is allowed to have 3 goalies on a team. A team is only allowed to have to dressed goalies to start a game.
It does not matter what eye color NHL goalies have. It just matters if they make good save saves. But alot of goalies have brown eyes also players.

This is opinional, but he is widely considered one of the best goalies in the NHL.
I do it all the time, its because the stats that you have in game play are all turned down for the CPU
Two, like most NHL teams. They are: 1. Mikka Kiprusoff 2. Henrik Karlsson On very rare occasions some teams may decide to carry three goalies, but the disadvantages usually outweigh the advantages of this arrangement as it is too difficult to give all the goalies enough playing time to keep them all sharp and happy.
3 goalies in minor and major league
Alot of goalies use #1.
