Laurent Brossoit - G Edmonton Oil Kings (CGY pick)

Kid is ridiculous. Two consecutive CHL goalie of the week awards, >.95 sv%, and has been especially good during this series with Moose Jaw - the second game should have been easily 6-4 or 6-5 had it not been for Brossoit's play, and he came up big multiple times in the third game. Some of the regular season success looks like it had to do partly with the great Oil Kings' Defence, but he's been a shining star in the playoffs.

Though I hate to say it, it looks like the Flames have themselves a real gem with him, especially for a 6th round selection.

Irving is the mostly likely to take that role with an outside shot of Ramo if he comes over and plays as well as he has in the KHL.

Big fan. Has been better this year than anybody would have expected. Kid's a great player and definitely has the potential to be solid #1 NHL goalie.

He's been unreal though. Game 2 against Moose Jaw was probably one of the best junior goaltending games i've seen.

It's nice to see him doing well, but it's always tough to predict how a goalie will develop. The one thing I do love about him (from what little I've seen of him) is that he isn't a 'blocking goalie.' He tracks the puck and reacts to make the save. Very athletic goaltender.

I hate to admit it but the Flames definitely have a solid prospect here. Doesnt matter how good the team is in front of him that sv% is unreal. He's still facing almost 30 shots a game with a 9.49sv%

Based on the picture above, it would seem he has Jon Quick's groin if nothing else.

He's athletic, a reflex goalie, imo, although technically sound, generally speaking. His major "weakness" seems to be that he loses focus of the game at times, but that's not atypical of young goalies.

Between the pipes is easily Calgary's biggest strength with Irving, Ramo, Brossoit, Ortio and potentially Taylor who has been putting up nice numbers with the Heat this year. Calgary will have a pretty nice problem and luxury when it comes to finding a replacement for Kipper.

It's always tough to tell with goalies. A guy who looks awesome in junior can fade pretty quickly in the pros. Still, Brossoit is playing very well right now - hopefully he can maintain it.

The Flames have been doing really well with later picks from the WHL lately (Brossoit, Ferland, Holland).

The scouting on other areas is still lacking though, although the recent drafting of Bill Arnold and John Gaudreau, and that they`ve shown interest in NCAA FAs (unlike the previous regime) indicates that they`re maybe getting a bit better south of the border.

They've also got Ramage in the NCAA - looks like he could be a solid 4-6 stay-at-home type in the long run.

But you're right - it seems like most of their picks are from the WHL and NCAA. They did take Granlund from Europe last year and he's had a solid year as well. And they did pick Erixon in the 1st a couple of years ago (although we all know how that turned out).

I feel like the biggest problem is that age gap group. Flames have good roster players around 30 and above. They have some nice prospects that I think will be NHL'ers, Arnold, Reinhart, Baertschi, Nemisz, Bouma, etc. Leach, Wotherspoon, Ramage on D.

What they seem to be missing is that age gap of 22-27, I think that's sort of what they plan to use the college FA signings for.

The one I'll say about him is that he doesn't give up a lot if rebounds and his defense clear out any ones he does, so there are no second chances. He also doesn't really give up bad goals. The goals he does give up are usually the rare second/3rd chances that he and the defense let the other team have. From my viewings of the oil kings the other teams never win games so much as the oil kings lose them.

He was lights out in their recent victory over Kamloops. Getting hot at the right time.
