I think EA planted a Patrick Roy clone in my Phoenix dynasty. I traded for a goalie (drafted by MTL !) named Reginald Ratchuk, who was 72 overall with 4.5 gold stars, 6'4 206 lbs at 20 years old. I gave him 70 AHL starts and he jumped up to an 89 overall with 5 gold stars. As a rookie he was dominant (simmed until playoffs):

GP 79 W 49 L 23 GA 161 GAA 2.04 SV% .932 SO 11
GP 20 W 16 L 4 GA 40 GAA 1.80 SV% .941 SO 3

He won the Calder, Hart, Lindsay, Vezina and Conn Smythe trophies as a rookie, but then improved to 93 overall and smashed those numbers as a sophomore at just 22 years old, again all simmed:

GP 78 W 56 L 16 GA 113 GAA 1.41 SV% .948 SO 16

Just starting playoffs at the end of this season, I have Ratchuk locked up for 7 more seasons at $7.6MM, and I'm going to try and keep him for his whole career. 99s in shot recovery and stick high plus 97s in glove high and stick low make for some amazing second chance saves.
