Best Answer

Based on the stats from the 2010/11 season it is Tim Thomas of the Boston Bruins. Certainly a case could be made for Vancouver's Robert Luongo as well. Career wise, based on personal stats, team stats, wins, shutouts, awards won, etc., the best goalie ever has to be Martin Brodeur of the New Jersey Devils. ( While you can make good arguements for Patrick Roy, Terry Sawchuk, Ken Dryden, etc., none has had the prolonged personal and team success as Brodeur.)

Next answerer:

The IIHF had a ceremony 2008 where they presented the best hockey players of the last 100 years choosen by an expert panel. The best goalie was voted

Vladislav Tretjak.

No doubt Tretiak was a great goalie but he never played in the long seasonal grind of the NHL . It was quite easy for a goalie of his caliber to beat the Polands and Austrias of the hockey world. As well . I was only referencing goalies of the NHL.
