So last night's game was pretty spectacular, and not just because of that sweet win the Colorado Rapids served to Real Salt Lake. It was also a record setter for the Rapids' keeper, Matt Pickens. Now at 40 wins, Pickens officially broke the record for career wins for a goalkeeper. This record was previously held by Marcus Hahnemann, with 39 wins. Hahnemann, a former US International, played for the Rapids from 1997-1999. He set the record in his second year with the Rapids, the same year that he was also named Defender of the Year.

Matt Pickens is no rookie when it comes to setting records. Just last May, he earned his 26th shutout for the Rapids, breaking the record originally held by Joe Cannon, who played keeper for the Rapids from 2003 to 2006 (and who currently plays for the Vancouver Whitecaps).

So, looking at Matt Pickens, Marcus Hahnemann, and Joe Cannon, who stands out to you as the best all-time keeper for the Rapids?
