I know this is a minor move, but European goaltenders are the norm in the NHL now, and the inbreeding is really getting to me.
I would go out on a limb to say that any goalie who's stuck in the NHL knows enough about what he's looking at to know a good talent when he sees it. It's not a position that you can succeed at without an at least somewhat analytical approach.
