I love KV. He's big, skilled and he learned how to fight. His injuries (and how they've affected his development) are the only real concern obviously but at this point on the list I gotta go with the risk/reward guy who's closest to being NHL ready...and that's Veilleux.

Yeah because he's probably going to amount to nothing more than a quality AHL starter.

He's a good goalie but let's not act like we're neglecting some kind of superstar here. He is what he is and right now he projects as an injury recall back-up tender. No offense, but that type of player doesn't crack my top 20.

Now Matt Murphy on the other hand...

Exactly. Murray is my pick after KV.

Veilleux has shown some flashes of promise. I wonder if his injuries are a result of poor workout habits, or just **** luck. Either way here's to hoping he can stay healthy for a season.

His last two significant injuries were his shoulder and his knee. Seems more like **** luck than conditioning. His whole career seems to mirror Marty Straka's 2002.

I'm about done getting excited about KV and his size, skills and physicality only to see him get injure again and again. If he makes it somehow, then great. But the odds are greatly against him considering how much playing time he's missed that's essential for a player his age's development.

ya i do think Murray could be good, def will be who i vote for next

my only reason for voting zatkoff is he is a good AHL starter, maybe possibly an NHL backup at some point, and is much farther along in his development than everyone else. only reason i voted for him instead of Murray this time.

also random question, Jayson Megna can be added to this right?

I'm going to vote for Matt Murray before the top 20 is done. I think he's got more upside than a lot of folks are giving him credit for.

Agree, we have the depth to do a top 25 or 30 this year. What with the lockout looking inevitable, might as well....

It hard to get as excited for goalies just because it seems like they bust easier. This is a hard section of prospects to vote on just because there are a lot of guys that seem close in "value".

Being a borderline NHL player is the maximum potential of most of the people on this list right now and he's way closer to reaching it than anyone else.

I'm sure age is a factor too.

Goalies mature much more slowly than position players.

Went with Archie. I like Zlobins hands and shot but I would like to see him be a little more battle ready and start scoring in dirty areas.
