If you were drafting a team with the intention of winning the Stanley Cup this year (e.g. age, cap hit in the future, all that other stuff doesn't matter), who would be the top 10 sought after goalies?

My picks, in order, would be:

Brodeur
Rinne
Quick
Lundqvist
Ward
Fleury
Kiprusoff
Luongo
Niemi
Halak

Am I totally out to lunch or is this a reasonably fair assessment?

Apologies to Price and Miller but I don't know that I'd want them more than Niemi (who's won a cup) and Halak (who took Montreal on a wild ride a few years back by himself alone).

Death is certain, replacing both the siren-song of Paradise and the dread of Hell. Life on this earth, with all its mystery and beauty and pain, is then to be lived far more intensely: we stumble and get up, we are sad, confident, insecure, feel loneliness and joy and love. There is nothing more; but I want nothing more.

BAD MOVE!!!

BAD FING MOVE

HAHAHA ANOTHER INJURED MORON ON OUR TEAM

HE WILL JOIN US IN 2019

Benning will be fired next year. Hope he enjoys screwing around for a few months. I just cant believe this. Another injured BC player. We just got rid of garrison. Seems like the canucks and linden just wanted any BC born player. Doesn't matter if hes good or not. We don't need another Linden to get us to game 7 of the Stanley cup and lose. We need someone to win us a cup.

5 million a year for Vrbata? 6 million for Miller? Kesler for Bonino and 24th instead of 10th pick or one of their top prospects? Garrison for scraps?

ive already lost faith in JB. Ive never EVER had this bad of a feeling about management.

It's really tough to make an objective list of the best goalies. People rank them based on varying sample sizes, whether it be this season alone, the last couple seasons or even a bigger sample size like the last decade.

Take Roberto Luongo, for instance. If you take into account the last couple seasons, he's probably a top 15 goalie. If you take account a sample size between the 2005 lockout and now, Luongo is easily a top 5 goalie, along with Kiprusoff, Lundqvist, Brodeur and Miller.

I think we can only surmise definitively that Henrik Lundqvist is the best in the game. He has a Vezina Trophy, 3 additional Vezina nominations and is likely on track for at least another nomination this year. He's also top 3 in wins since the 04/05 lockout even though he can really only claim he's played on a legitimate elite team ONCE during that span (last season). The rest is very subjective.

Schneider>>Rinne

Rinne benefited from Nashville's solid defensive game. While Schneider gets hung out to dry by his all the time.

Not too many goalies are stealing games like Schneider this season. Bobrovsky is probably the only comparable.

Carey Price anyone?

1) Price
2) Lundqvist
3) Schneider
4) Fleury
5) Rinne
6) Rask
7) Quick
8) Bobrovsky
9) Luongo
10) Niemi

If Schneider keeps his current play up he will be a strong Vezina contender IMO

In my eyes drouin is overrated he can score in the qmjhl but did nothing in last two gold medal games that canada lost. Fox will be better pro than him talk to me in five yrs

Gaudreau has one NHL goal whereas all your "prized" prospects have none.

   ryan kesler is going to the chicago blackhawks ...       quote me on it

Right now Rask or Lundqvist are leading contenders for the Vezina IMO. Andersson doesn't have enough games played.

If Schneider can get a few more shutouts and lower his GAA a bit, he'll definitely be right in the mix.

Schneider will be the #1 goalie in this league pretty soon. And when am talking about being #1 is not just on our team, it will be the whole damn league.

And why is that? I think Schneider is better than Rinne and he will prove it by playing more games.

If your comparing by how experienced some of these goalies are then your right otherwise Schneider is easily in the top 10 in the league right now.

In terms of general ability, this is a debate we could have forever.

Right now though, Cory is the best in the league. He has started the last 10 games, and put up these numbers:


Saves: 251
GA: 13
SA: 264
S%: 0.951
TOI: 544:13
GAA: 1.433 (1.212 w/o Edmonton game)
Record: 8-2-0
Shutouts: 3

If he keeps that up, he'll drag us through one more round than we deserve come playoff time.
