Any goalie you feel deserves to be on the ECHL Wall of Fame? E-mail your nominations for the next inductee(s). If there is enough response, then I will put up a poll so that everyone can vote on the winner(s). Please specify the reason you think your nomination should be included (and not just because "he's cute"). Also, please keep it ECHL related. Someone like Olie Kolzig probably wouldn't swing it since his greatest impact on hockey came after leaving the ECHL. Most importantly, HAVE FUN!
