Tough call on some of these, as we're dealing with some very similar careers, but here is my list:

1. Tom Barrasso: 2 Stanley Cups, 1 Vezina Trophy, 369 career wins. A little tougher to analyze stat-wise, as he's the only one of the five to play significant years in the higher-scoring '80s. I give him a slight edge over Osgood based in part on the Vezina.

2. Chris Osgood: 2 Stanley Cups in really 2 different eras with Detroit. 401 Wins and 74 career playoff wins. 50 career shutouts. Probably on more consistently quality teams than the other four.

3. Nikolai Khabibulin: 1 Stanley Cup, 328 career wins. Very similar stats to Kolzig, but backstopping the Cup winner in Tampa Bay in 2004 gives him a slight edge.

4. Olaf Kolzig: 1 Vezina Trophy, but only won 3 playoff series, and those all came in the same year. Losing career playoff record at 20-24.

5. Sean Burke: Only goalie of the 5 to have a worse career GAA and save % in the post-season than he did in the regular season throughout his career. After a nice playoff run his rookie year with the Devils, he never won another playoff series.

Good luck, Float.


Burke, Kolzig, Khabibulin, Osgood, Barrasso


So, you are arguing the exact opposite of my picks. Interesting strategy.

I'm going to stay with my list and say that Barrasso and Osgood at the top of my list had better careers than Burke and Kolzig at the top of yours. I'll stick with the guys at the top of my list that have more wins, better playoff histories and multiple Stanley Cups.

I sure hope he does. It'll be fun to show left how it feels to auto-voted against.

You're auto-voting against me?

It's okay. I received a fan mail. That's how it works, right?

I'm not sure if you are suggesting 11Rings is DJ...

I hope not, because that's not even close to true. Just curious, because I am confused!

I'm not suggesting that at all. However, if you check DJ's TDs you'll find ElevenRingsSTL votes for DJ on almost every single one. Coincidence?

Okay, I was wondering what you were getting at, but I guess I'm still not sure what you are trying to say.

I don't vote for all of DJs TDs. I've voted for him many times and against him many times. I do not auto-vote against anyone and I have never sent a fan mail regarding a TD.

Ah ok. I don't know anything about that and I won't get into it :-) Thanks for clarifying though. I was lost!

Okay, just let me know what you need me to do in that event.

Float, ur out. Finish this TD if u want, but it won't be for the tourney... we are moving on to a new TD and a new challenger. Jim77 will get a chance at redemption.
