That link isn't working for me, but I don't know how much I'm missing by not being able to read an article that ranks Harding ahead of Luongo. Like you guys say, that's just not to be taken seriously, and like you I'd like to see how Backstrom plays in a more wide open system before i can take him over Luongo.

Don't get me wrong; I think he's a good goalie, but he doesn't seem to do well when he has to move side to side. That's something he's rarely had to do under Lemaire, so we haven't been able to get a good read on him thus far, but I think there's a good chance he'll be exposed this season as a purely positional goaltender. we should know in a few months; meanwhile, thanks for the info! This is the first I've heard of this article.
