Does any young goalie...

hold a candle to kari lehtonen, or is he far and away the best young goalie coming up. i will define an up-and-coming goaltender as any goalie who has never served as a starter for at least 1 season.

Fleury is running along side with Lehtonen just watch, Lehtonen had 4 great starts, but Fleury was one of the better goalies in the league for around 1 or 2 months, then he started to wear down cause of his defense.

For what it's worth, McKeen's ranks Marek Schwarz the 10th-best goalie prospect around, and every goalie prospect ranked ahead of Schwarz (except Al Montoya) is already playing pro, some in their third season...

If he's only played 6 games, it sounds like he's a backup in the ECHL too.

Lundqvist is a third-year pro in Sweden. So that's still only one.

And yes, I know Schwarz played pro in the CR last year... for half the season. He was on the Sparta junior team for a large part of the year, too.

And no, I don't take McKeen's as "the bible" by any means. Just reporting what's out there.

Why does it seem as though there's some big push now to discount Schwarz as a legitimate top goalie prospect? It wouldn't be because of the team that drafted him, would it...
