Except for Thomas, who wasn't even a high priced FA. I don't understand why teams splurge on goaltending when they should be scouting.

It takes a long time to groom a goalie into a position where they are good enough to win the cup. And goalies are harder to gauge than players imo.

Niemi was 25 when he signed with the Hawks and only played part of one year in the AHL for them before he helped win them the cup. I don't know if he really counts.

That's an interesting stat. I find it hard to believe though...

Giguere wasn't drafted by the Ducks to my recollection.

Traded from the Flames, IIRC, but my trivia from back then is a bit fuzzy.

It counts in the sense that all the winning goalies since 2006, Thomas included, came into their own on the team they won with. None of them were high priced free agents.

All of them were on stacked teams and were good enough to win when it mattered.

It's just more evidence that throwing big money and years at a UFA goalie is a terrible idea. See Bryzgalov, Huet, Khabibulin, Luongo... I can't think of any big money goalie that's ever lived up to the contract.

There's no rules or formula for winning a cup, no matter how people try to spin facts like this.

I'm not sure what the OP is trying to get at here. Thomas spent more time in the Bruins minor league system than Giguere or Niemi did in their respective cup winning organizations.

No. He was drafted by Hartford, traded to the Flames, then traded to the Ducks.

Not exactly fair, in my opinion. Luongo nearly carried his team to a Cup, Thomas just had a ridiculous playoff and beat him out in a 7 game series. Khabibulin may not have won a Cup in Chiago either, but he was pretty damn successful and won one in Tampa Bay.

Only Ward, Osgood, Fleury, Niemi and Quick would I describe as "home grown" or brought up through their respective team's system.

Then again, the definition changes from person to person.

Cup Finals Losers:

Brodeur - homegrown
Luongo - not
Leighton - not
Osgood - homegrown (though I would consider him more "not")
Fleury - homegrown
Emery - homegrown
Roloson - not

Take this as you will... 50/50 for the runner ups.

In other words: certain situations exist....except when they don't.

Afraid I don't understand.

The Red Wings drafted him and he broke in with them originally, his spending time with other organizations before going back to them doesn't change this.

When was the last time a big name goalie took a big contract from a new team in FA?

Doesn't seem to happen often at all. Bryz is the only recent one I can really think of.

He is home grown.

But, the OP is saying you need to do a good job scouting prospects to have a Cup winning goalie. I don't think Osgood fits here, even if he won the Cup with the Wings after returning to them years after his first stint with them.

If the Wings were following that model, they either wouldn't have re-acquired him and would have had a home grown goalie from their own system in goal that year, or they never would have let him go in the first place.

The second he left the team, he wasn't what the OP was talking about. His point is you don't need to sign a goalie as a FA or acquire one through a trade. Osgood clearly was.

Ah, thanks for clearing that up.

I think this shows that theses teams were able to indentify the fact that they have an elite goaltender in their system and have thus kept him.

Not all teams are lucky enought to successfully draft a potential cup winner but those teams that do keep them, at all cost.
