I'm interested in how everyone stacks the playoff goalies right now.

I have to run so I can't give a thorough opinion, but will give you my list.

West
Quick: Great year, but has given up a lot of goals in his short playoff career
Rinne: Can dominate, but also goes thru stretches of lapses. Needs to be better in playoffs
Smith: Great story and very athletic. Next to zero playoff experience
Howard: Quietly goes about his business and is underrated
Luongo: Much maligned, but pitched 2 shutouts in the Finals last year
Halak: Has the experience of two years ago, but could be replaced by Elliott
Niemi: Has a ring, but still not regarded as one of the best. Gave up a lot of goals last year
Crawford: Inconsistent year, but was pretty good last year vs the Nucks in playoffs
 
 
East
Thomas: Reigning champ has to be respected until defeated. His time of the year
Lundqvist: Has only been decent in the playoffs. Seems worn down
Fleury: Last 2 playoff years have not been kind, but I still respect his big game ability
Brodeur: The Lion in Winter's last kick at the can?
Bryzgalov: Must be great for Philly to have any chance. That is very doubtful
Anderson: Not much experience in playoffs
Neuvirth: Is he healthy and ready to go?
Theodore: The old sieve had a solid year

Agree with most. Anderson, whilst he's only been in the playoffs 1 year I believe, played amazing for the Avalanche stealing a couple games and was solid throughout the series.

A couple really streaky goalies there...Theodore, Halak, Bryzgalov to name a few.

Holtby wasn't bad down the stretch going 4-2 and only had one real "blow up" game vs Buffalo

True. I chose only one goalie from each team. Hell, Theodore might be riding the pine himself. There is too much uncertainty with Washington and Florida right now to take them as series dogs.
 
The East has three goalies (Ward, Miller, & Price) that can get super hot sitting this playoff year out. Therefore it will be harder for upsets since goaltending is easily the number one reason an upset usually occurs.
