Toronto Sports Media Sunday- Best Maple Leaf Goalie

Wow, we finally get a great weekend weeather-wise and the entire press corp takes the weekend off. There was not one story anywhere worth commenting on or writing about. A first since I started TSM over a year ago. Of course a day about nothing leads me to a show about nothing, and my favorite Seinfeld episode of all time:

Now back to the point. The National Post listed the top 10 Blue Jays of all time. Let’s take a quick tour over the next couple of days and list the top Maple Leafs. As Burke is building from the net out, let’s start with the top 10 Maple Leaf goalies of all time!

Here are the all the goalies who played for the blue and white since the beginning of time, or at least 1926:

Broda is the best goalie of all time. No contest. Horner was a D man and Conacher played wing.
