My List Of 4 Great NHL Lengendery Goaltenders

Updated on March 29, 2013

What makes a great goal-tending legend? How did these goalies become legends? many play the goal-tending position, but only a few become NHL Legends. A Goalie is usually the face of the franchise, there is a lot of weight on the goalies shoulders, and goalies are at the fore front of the game. Goalies are smart, quick, and have superb agility, goalies can win you a game or they can louse you a game. goalies to me, are a vital part of hockey and below is my thoughts on some all time NHL Goal tending legends
