I'm not going to pretend that I am some sort of expert on goalies, because I am most certainly not, but there is definitely still place for smaller goalies in the NHL. For a smaller goalie it's really a question of how well they play the angles.
This kid seems to be the real deal. Are there any nhl comparisons on him? Hopefully pittsburgh picks takeshim in the third, from what ive heard he is apparently on of the best finish goaltender prospects in awhile. Who knows maybe he grows a couple of inches.
18-year-old Saros has been a regular starter for the HPK team in the Finnish League this season and is doing a great job. He has played behind a poor HPK team (12th place /14 currently) and is still 3rd in the league with a save% of 93,40.
Looking forward to WJHC's, he might be the next Tuukka Rask for Finland in that tournament.
