I think the goaltending job is Price's to lose. He can play in the highest pressure goalie situation in the NHL. I think Fleury is a bit of a joke honestly. Still going off his high draft pick pedigree, he has one good regular season and one decent middle of the pack one.

His save percentage also sees a large drop come playoff time. If hes Canada's guy, theres gonna be problems. I think it will end up Price, Ward, Fleury/Luongo.

As for Helm as the 13th forward, he would add a cool dimension to the team. Hes a smaller guy who can throw huge hits so you wouldnt have to worry about the head shots the IIHF seems to crack down on. Hes arguably the best PKer in the league and hes probably the fastest Canadian out there (arguably in the league). I think he may get an actual look, but only if he hits at least 50 points and keeps a high face off percentage
