Not all but a lot of Swedes would rank Fasth second to Lundqvist right now.

BUT Fasth is still unproven on NHL level having played just one game thus making a comparison difficult.

Talent wise is different, then I would rank Lehner, Markstrom and Lack ahead of Fasth.

Lundqvist number one by a very large margin though.

EDIT: Unfortunately rebound control is something many Swedish goalies seem to struggle with on NHL level though. :-( Perhaps the best example of this in recent years is Jonas Gustavsson.
