Lehtonen or Halak
 
Whos better?

Billy Mays Here 01-10-2013 01:24 AM

Lehtonen fairly easily.

Also, who's Hala?

Virtanen2Horvat 01-10-2013 01:43 AM

I would say Halak he is proven and has more experience.

Baggie 01-10-2013 02:05 AM

Lehtonen if his injury problems are gone.

Benny FTW 01-10-2013 02:32 AM

Lehtonen.

Halak has yet to be elite without out a defensive collapse team.

He's played on 2 NHL teams and played elite for both of them. He also played extremely well for Slovakia in the Olympics. I don't follow their style to know if they play a defensive system but you can't blame the guy for the teams he plays on.

Halak, surprised Lehtonen is winning this. Lehtonen ain't bad at all in top15 at least but Halak is notch above.

I'm equally surprised to see Lehtonen winning, but I agree with it. It's pretty crowded between the top5 to top12-ish. But I'd have Lehtonen a tad higher than Jaro.

I don't think he's played elite for either. He had outstanding playoffs after a good season with Montreal, but elite-ness in goalies comes with consistency, not with being extremely hot for an extended amount of time. I think he gets "blamed" for anything here, but it's a fair opinion that he's he's done very well in a situation that's perfectly suited to make a goalie comfortable with the Blues, as indicated by Elliott's numbers there, as well. I wouldn't put him in the elite category over that span, either.

They are relatively close, IMO, but I'd pick Kari for now.

Habs 4 Life 01-10-2013 09:04 AM

Lehtonen if he can stay healthy

Dolph Ziggler 01-10-2013 09:05 AM

I'd take Halak.

EveryDay 01-10-2013 09:11 AM

Jaro for me.

tony d 01-10-2013 09:55 AM

Halak.

Ceremony 01-10-2013 10:46 AM

Lehtonen

Lehtonen is underrated, he was the stars mvp the past two seasons

Lehtonen is 29 years old with 344 NHL games played.

Halak is 27 years old with 204 NHL games played.

Experience isn't really a good reason to choose Halak...

WildcatMapleLeafs28 01-10-2013 12:21 PM

I'd take Halak but it's very close.

Lebanese Leaf 01-10-2013 12:35 PM

Halak for me, surprised Lehtonen winning by such a margin.

Jerk Store 01-10-2013 12:37 PM

good poll

digdug41982 01-10-2013 12:38 PM

Halak is maybe a shade better but Lehtonen is a workhorse which cleary pushes him over the top for me.

Ivan13 01-10-2013 12:54 PM

Lehtonen easily, anyone voting otherwise didn't pay too much attention to Dallas.

Le Magnifique 66 01-10-2013 12:54 PM

Lehtonen for me

the 01-10-2013 01:26 PM

Halak...I'm surprised he's losing and starting to wonder if he's underrated. It's ridiculous that some people think he's good just because of "The System" the guy proved he's a legit top 10 goalie.

Agreed.

I'd want Halak in the playoffs where he can go HAM, but if I want to get there in the first place I'd rather count on Lehtonen's ability to be great game in and out.

stayinalive 01-10-2013 01:54 PM

Lehtonen

CRSeven 01-10-2013 02:01 PM

Lehtonen, and at this point, it's not that close.

In the future, we will see.
