This thread needs more Anders Nilsson, I think he will be better than Lehner. He was one of the best goalies in SEL before he went overseas and he did well in AHL aswell. I think he will be a beast in the NHL one day.
You should also watch out for Oscar Dansk in a few years.
I'm curious to see how some people here would rank James Reimer against some of these guys
Obviously its a tough comparison especially on HF where the future always seems to be > the present
But still I'm wondering if anyone thinks he is capable of being as good as some of these guys will be 3-5 years in the future
Reimer has proved a lot more in the NHL than any of these players thus far. I think his upside is lower than the top end players (Markstrom, Campbell, Gibson, Lack, etc.) but his realistic peak is similar to players like Allen and Tokarski IMO. I bet that he ends up a better goalie than half the players on most people's lists
I saw Gibson play in the USA dev camp a month back and came away pretty impressed in the short sample size, but I didn't know he was considered as good as people here putting him in the number 1 spot for goalie prospects.
