I don't know how they are internally rating those two goalies, but in my eyes Starkbaum would only be some kind of a consolation prize.

He (Starkbaum) had been the dominating goalie in Austrian hockey for a couple of years before finally accepting what has been considered his last chance to make it to one of the top European leagues by most scouts last year. But he is already 27 years old and has proven nothing at the top level so far besides one great season in Eliteserien. I hope he pans out, but more likely he is the next Johan Backlund.
