Best Goalie Prospect

Who do you think are the top goalie prospects, already drafted that will most likely be with their team very soon.

markstrom and lehner are probably the consensus top two. Both extremely skilled and nhl ready this year.

Ya this really is Markstrom and Lehner, then a big gap, the Lack, IMO. I think Markstrom is slightly ahead of Lehner at this point.

Vasilevski has to be up there as well. Kid has been a stud and is STILL WJC eligible.

IMO Tampa, Phoenix and Colorado have the best goalie prospects out of those teams listed. I like Phoenix's stable of goalie prospects, not so much Visentin but I do like Mike Lee alot. Jon Gillies has impressed me as well in Calgary but his ETA is 3-4 years at least.

To answer your question, I'd take the Islanders and Kevin Poulin or Tampa with Dustin Tokarski. Nashville's Jeremy Smith should get some consideration too for a backup spot but not til next year.

Better add Minnesota to that list..with Hackett, Gustafsson, and Kuemper in the system they are very set.

John Gibson won't be with the Ducks for another two years at least probably, but I think he's the best goalie prospect in the world. He just confirmed that at the WJC.

yeah,the big three are definitely those 2 and Hackett than probably a bit of a drop off from there.

Short term I would go with Minnesota ( yes I know they aren't on the list) and longterm with Tampa they have great goalies on every level. Tokarski and Helenius in the AHL, Vasilevsky (1,82 GAA in 5 games) and Janus (2,10 as a starter) in the KHL and a promising NCAA freshman in Adam Wilcox (20 consecutive starts and a 1,72 GAA)

Couple of weeks ago he had his first KHL Start and got a shut out only to be pulled in the next game. He was given another start last night stopping 22 of 23 shots.

Well give him some time to get to KHL pace, he is still 18 until July ( youngest KHL goalie ever, right? I'm not sure about this) so he will be unbelievable in a year or 2

Of course it takes a Ducks fan or two for him to make an appearance in this thread

I'd say Markstrom is the top goalie prospect. Lehner, J.Gibson, Vasilevski, and J.Allen are also up there.

Unlikely. Gibson is a hell of a prospect don't get me wrong. There is a thing called a hotstreak.....you know some times lasting for about 10 games or so. I think its fair to say Gibson was on said streak. Also the USA's defense as a whole just enveloped the whole tournament. He isn't the best goaltending prospect in the world. What would happen if Markstrom would of played for Sweden in the WJC. (I know, I know hes too old.) Lets just say they gave that team an exemption and let him play for Sweden. Yeah....his save percentage would of been in the .97 range. No joke.

Vasilevski is by far the best goalie prospect in the world.

Markstrom by a mile as of now. Lehner is next, just look at what Jack Campbell did at the wjc, or pogge. These guys like Gibson and Vasilevski or Even Subban have years before we know what we are really getting. Yes they could be the best eventually but right now imo it's Markstrom.

Markstrom and Lehner are the top 2. Markstrom has been better in the AHL but I personally think that Lehner's been better in their limited NHL experience thus far.

The WJC wasn't out of the ordinary for Gibson. That's how he's been playing in the OHL pretty much since getting drafted. Pretty long hot streak if you ask me. Also he was just as good if a little more unexperienced as Hiller and Fasth at camp.

I love some of the replies in this thread. Go and re-read what the OP first posted. Basically asking for the best goalies that aren't already on NHL teams that will be shortly.

Now, I love Gibson more than mostly any other goalie prospect. I believe DuckJet has seen a few of my previous posts regarding Gibson. Too bad he likely won't be on Anaheim for another 3-4 years.

Then, the OP posts a list of teams and people just come up with their own teams to add to the list

Minnesota wasn't on the list, Gibson won't be with the Ducks anytime soon. Why are they even being mentioned in this thread?
