Even though Roy does some pretty evil things on the ice, he gets the 'that guy is cool' vibe. Hasek, for me, has the 'damn i hate him' kinda feel. Which started when everybody got on the bandwagon for him a few years ago and basically all you heard was 'Dom is God'..
Roy has the records. Hasek when hot is sickingly good. Damn..I cannot decide.....Checkmanek?

Yeah, Hasek has a lot of Vezinas (even though he didn't deserve it in the 96-97 season. That should have gone to Martin Brodeur (67 GP, 37-14-13 record, NHL leading GAA of 1.88, and a save % of 0.927) BRODEUR WAS FARKING ROBBED), but how many Stanley Cups has he led his team to? None. Roy did it four times-twice in Montreal and twice in Colorado. Roy is the all-time winningest goalie in the NHL and revolutionized the game with his butterfly-style of netminding.
So I'm picking Roy.
...Some fear the Pink... ...But many fear....THE MOUNTIE! (He's handsome, he's brave, and he's strong, you know)
You can't talk about Roy and Hasek in terms of cups: it's apples and oranges. I am a life-long Buffalo fan (I'm wearing a jersey right now), and I'll be the first to admit that Hasek WAS Buffalo. Roy never played for a crappy team. In so many games for so many seasons, HASEK was the team. I'm actually glad he's gone now so that we can build a TEAM instead of a Hasek support system.
Ego? Yes, Hasek has an ego (and a drinking problem), but have you ever heard Roy "cut a promo"? What a classic fued he had going with Roenick a few seasons back...
Roy dominated for a longer time than Hasek. Hasek came to the NHL late in his career, though. If Hasek had played for a better team, he might have a handful of rings. Over the past few season, he has been limited by his groin (that sounds silly).
If I were playing one game for it all, I'd want Hasek in goal. If I were going a full season, I'd take Roy.
and now the picking strategy changes as you have to lock your roster for the rest of the playoffs - play it safe and pick the best or take a chance and load up on the players from your predicted finalists......
