All of these teams had the named goalies play for them in the NHL in one season...

1954-55 Red Wings:  Sawchuck and Hall. Honourable mentions to 1971-72 Canadiens: Dryden and Vachon, and the 93-94 Sabres: Fuhr and Hasek.

Good options, I wasn't going to be able to remember them all.

 

Go with the 92-93 Sabres and you get to include Daren Puppa.

 

As to the 71-72 Canadiens, I would say Myre and DeJordy are both worth naming as the 3 and 4 guys.

Do we consider the names in their best years or only in the years you named?

 

The 1938-39 Bruins had two incredible legends, Frank "Mr. Zero" Brimsek as the 23-year old Calder and Vezina winner backed up by a 35-year old veteran legend "Tiny" Thompson, winner of four Vezinas himself.

 

Also, from 1991 through to 1993, the Blackhawks had both Hasek and Belfour.

Luongo, Thomas... not the greatest lineup but definitely one of the most awkward ever lol

I would take it as being how they were in the lineup that year?

That is how I voted anyways, as some were not on top of their game till on other teams

Man the Smythe Div(Heck Campbell Conf) had some crappy 'tending in the 80's. Coilers scorers got a free pass.

Most of these were great, but I went with the Islanders in 1980. Billy Smith was awesome and also full of p_ss and vinegar. Glenn 'Chico' Resch was equally good. And then of course the future great Nucks goalie Richard 'The King' Brodeur. What good memories. I hated the Islanders because they were so good. Much like I hated the Oilers after that. ha ha.

Oh how I remember, Belfour and Hasek, what a combo!   And I also remember that cheapskate Bill Wirtz let both HoF'ers walk when it came to contract time.

Many-a-team has been ruined by cheapskate owners.

Easy. Roy and whoever his backup was.

I’d pick Hasek easily over Pat Roy.

Dominik Hasek single handedly won the Czechs a gold medal.

 

In a game 7. He is who you want in net.

Have to go with The Dominator, guy is the closest a goalie will ever come to being able to hard carry a team. Hell, I doubt very many skaters could carry as hard as he could.
