Forsberg is the answer...I really think people are getting a little overexcited about Holtby.
They definitely are, but it's hard to argue with the fact that he's played at a high level (not as high as some people think) in the NHL playoffs already. His potential to be an impactful NHLer is more clear than Forsberg's at this point. I had to consider it for a minute though. I think Orlov has a case for #2 as well.
Right. One guy flamed out, so let's change our stance on every prospect at his position. Got it.
Jim Carey has nothing to do with Braden Holtby, Michael Neuvirth, Steffen Soberg, Brandon Anderson, or whatever other name you want to throw in there.
Andrew Raycroft, Steve Mason, David Aebischer, etc.
It's not just Jim Carey. Don't trust stats from young goaltenders, they're almost meaningless in predicting how the goalie's career will go. Holtby is definitely still a "prospect" and people are way overhyping the numbers he's had in limited NHL action.
