Martin Brodeur is a very good goaltender and a certain hockey Hall of Famer, but it's hilarious when people call him the best goalie ever.
Brodeur has played behind some amazing defenseman, such as longtime New Jersey Devils captain Scott Stevens, and his coaches have put some very intelligent defensive systems to good use.
His save percentage is 11th best all-time and he's played on some much better teams than some people in front of him, such as Hasek, Tomas Vokoun and Henrik Lundqvist.
He is the all-time shutout leader, but his team plays a very defensive style and a boring brand of hockey. When you play on that kind of team for 20 years you will have a lot of shutouts. The NHL wasn't as high scoring in the 2000s as it was in the 1980s and 1990s.
In all time GAA he is 8th and again behind Hasek. His wins record is impressive but again when you play on a very talented, defensive team for 20 years you will certainly have many wins.
Brodeur certainly benefited from the Devils defensive approach in his career.
