Rask would be my #1 choice, though, followed by Schneider.
For that matter, how about Hackett?

I, too, voted for Rask. He's proved more than the others on the list, IMO.

Agreed, just wanted to put his name in the "runners up" conversation. Rask and Schneider are my top 2.

Hackett seems really good too, but he's just 21, not hard to see how he hasn't been made a starter yet, there's a lot to learn to become a starting NHL goalie, at 21 most goalies (even really talented ones) are still in the AHL or are backups in the NHL. Whereas with backups in their mid 20s who have starter talent, it's more of a "this guy has got to be a starter ASAP" situation.
