Tuomo has talent in almost all areas of the game and will become one of the Best Finns to ever step on the ice.
Hes not there just yet...

Anyone else think it's time to move on to #3 Finn in the NHL?

I don't think there is any use doing a #3 because Kipprusoff or Lehtinen will take it without question, so, i'm moving straight to #4. I think it'll be interesting to see who you guys choose as #4..... there are so many great choices!!

Again, you arn't listening. I merely listed two guys who were well known as being two of the top goaltending experts out there. Dan Marcoux is another goaltending expert who also echoed their statments as well.

I think Kipper is a great talent but he is far from "proven". Do we even know he has the stamina to be a starter for a full season in the NHL?

Within a span of 7 months, he played 64 games last year. I'd say he does.

Ok, within the span of last season how many games did he miss?

I'd say the jury is still out.

Between the 64 games he played, he probably missed about 5-10.

I can see where your coming from about Kiprusoff being proven, but as far as I'm concerned, all he has to show is that he can do it again. He has showeed he can do it, he has shown he can do it over an extended period of time and he has shown he can come back big after a bad game (something that seperates him from the "riding wave" guys) now all he has to show is that he can do it from year to year.

I voted for Jere on the two previous polls, so why change.

That's exactly my point.

I think you lost me... your point was that he has shown already that he can do it over an extended period of time?

Or did you bold the wrong part and say he still has yet to show he can do it from season to season?

Lehtinen.

Selanne and Jokinen should be ahead of Kipper he hasnt proven much yet, only half a good season and a good playoff run plus a good world cup recently lets see if he can keep it up.

Wow, Koivu as Finland's best player. No wonder Canada never loses to them.

Selanne is 34 years old and coming off a 32 point season. Kiprusoff just a ) broke the NHL GAA record, b ) led a bunch of lovable losers to the SCF and then c ) did the same at the World cup

Selanne was a TREMENDOUS NHL talent, but he's not better than Kiprusoff right now

It's interesting how the Flames defence is so incredible when it comes to writing off Kiprusoff, but when Flames fans try and suggest their team has a top 10 defence it gets dismissed out of hand

I'll concede that Kiprusoff really needs another season or two to cement his status as a bonafide NHL elite goalie, but he did accomplish alot last year, and he appears to have the mental make up to stay the course. I hope so anyways
