Let's face it, goalies are "different." That shouldn't come as a surprise when you figure that your job is to get in the way of a piece of frozen rubber flying at you at about 100 mph.

Years ago, when equipment wasn't so advanced, it hurt to stop the puck. Heck, before the 1970s, most goalies didn't even wear masks, so the job was quite hazardous.

Over the years, goalies have been called flakes, wacky, strange and many other things I can't print.

Here is a look at the 10 wackiest goalies in NHL history.

Feel free to add to the list or mention any you think I've missed (there are plenty of candidates). Good stories to back up your candidate are always appreciated.
