Don't forget Gillies, who's tearing up the NCAA this season. Calgary has maybe the best stable of goaltending prospects in the NHL.

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).
Quite well actually, we got Horak in that deal (amongst others).

Calgary has been quietly building up their prospect pool over the last 2-3 years.

Horak, Wortherspoon and Granlund.

You're absolutely right.

Baertschi, Janko, Sieloff, Wortherspoon, Gaudreau, Brossoit, Gillies, and Granlund all in two drafts!

Brossoit has really rebounded from his slow start. 2nd in the league in GAA and 3rd in SV% not to mention he can chuck 'em pretty good for a goalie:

Brossoit has had a great season, but has been LIGHTS OUT since team Canada evaluation camp.

Big, athletic goaltender, with promising upside. Hopefully we see him with the Heat next season!

And a terrible mental game that could have impacts on his future career.

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.
Ummmm... Leach is no longer Flames property. He wasn't resigned. Feaster also strongly hinted Ramage isn't in the future plans. The organization is very high on Gaudreau and Horak is an NHL lock.

Damn Broissoit is a beast! I wonder if he's had any boxing training? He had great head movement dodging those punches and his uppercuts were nasty! I was really surprised by that.

Gets rattled after letting weak goals.
Lets in weak goals at consistent bases.
90% of goaler is mental game.

There is a lot of talent there, so I am not calling him a bad player. Just needs to improve on mental game to succeed.

No offense but that doesn't tell you about his mental toughness at all and having seen him for 2 years as well I wouldn't say he is mentally weak. He does get down on himself when lets a bad goal I agree but he doesn't do it that often.

I would say he is prone to letting in bad goals pretty often tbh. The kid has a lot of talent no doubt but I think S E P H's evaluation is relatively fair.

I have seen him 10-15 times in the last 2 years and the Memorial Cup, I can only remember 2 bad goals and he did look rather shaky afterwards but I would not say he is mentally weak must young goales look shaky after a bad goal. I could be wrong but I haven't seen much to say he is mentally weak.

No it really isnt.

I wasnt a Brossoit fan two years ago, but he made me one last year. He didnt start off the year well but has picked up his game.

Any goalie who plays like he did during the playoffs (winning the mvp) is NOT mentally weak.

Mentally weak is Luongo flopping around on his belly, letting in soft goals and collapsing in the playoffs and playing like a skitterish cat in the Olympics.

You guys are too much sometimes.

Goalies are a neurotic lot by nature. It's true that Brossoit can self-destruct at times, but that can also be said about many top starters in the NHL. A goalie with an unshakable mental game is a very rare thing.

It's also easy to play in front of Gernat, Pysyk, Reinhart, Lowe, and Corbett.

Nobody has called him a bad goaler, I am just stating what his main weakness is and how it could impact his career.

Not so much when you are playing against Sven Bartschi and Ty Rattie. He was outstanding. That cant be overstated. You could have said that about him before that maybe, but not anymore. He has really grown in the last couple years. I think Ive seen him pulled once in the last two years. That doesnt sound like a goalie who is weak mentally.

Sam Consentino often mentionned that Team Canada questionned the mental aspect of his game as well. That's why they sent him to play the 2nd game in the Subway Super Series to see how he'd respond to a great performance. He had a tough start and TC saw what they feared for.

Maybe we have a different definition of mentally weak. When Brossoit is on his game he is fantastic. He will have games where he lets in a softie and has a rough night. You can say this is common in young goaltenders but this doesn't mean he is free from criticism from it. Elite goalies have the ability to shake off a bad goal, I question this about Brossoit.

You can also call it inconsistency, which I personally consider it to be part of the mental game (for players and goalers).

Judging by how their goalies and team performed I think it is safe to say their choices are questionable.

Right, because Subban and Binnington never let in bad goals. Hockey Canada put Kevin Prendergast in charge of the WJT. That says all you need to know about them.

Mentally weak means consistently folds under pressure.

Pretty hard to say that about a guy who was the WHL playoff MVP.
