Canada hasn't really produced many goalies who have been worth hyping & did anything. James Reimer and Steve Mason are 2 younger Canadian goalies who had flashes of success in the NHL but haven't done anything consistently. The last three 16 year olds that I remember coming in and being successful right away are Calvin Pickard, Peter Delmas, and Olivier Roy but none of them where really hyped up to be anything special. Personally, I expected a lot more from Calvin Pickard but the poor kid was stuck on a pretty bad Seattle team his entire WHL career.

Fucale's the first guy I've seen since Fleury at that age that I can look at and say he's a guaranteed first round pick.
