Probably the 3 biggest no brainer nominees in quite some time. It'll just depend on the last 15-20 games, I'd have Dubnyk ahead at the moment.

Holtby. Don't overcomplicate it. Just look at his results.

#1 in GAA. #1 in wins. #1 in shutouts. #3 in GAA.

Save the debate about other factors, like quality of team or quality of the D, for the Hart discussion.

Dubnyk is RIGHT there, though. I wouldn't have a problem with him winning it.

Actually Holtby is tied for 1st in wins with Dubnyk which could change tonight if Dubnyk wins.
He's also tied for 2nd in SA%,Dubnyk is 1st

2nd straight shutout tonite, 5th on the year. Devils made it really easy on him.

With games coming up against NJ/Buff/Buff/Phil......he has a chance to get a bunch of low scoring games in a row.

Not really, Bob is right behind or tied with Holtby and Dubynk in almost every major category.

These last 15-20 WILL make or break it for all 3 goalies. I think it's obvious these 3 are the finalists. But how they play down the stretch will be the deciding factor.

I love Holtby, but Dubnyk's got the storybook ending. Look where he was three years ago compared to where he is now... unbelievable!

I like Holtby to win it even though I am Wild fan. Our two match ups in the next 3 weeks will be fun however. Bob needs some recognition as well.

Out of curiosity, was Dubnyk a system goalie the last two seasons as well or only this one?

Then how do you justify putting Bob (.929) and Price (.922) ahead of Dubnyk (.933) and Holtby (.931)? Of the four main categories - Sv%, GAA, Wins, and SO - Bob and Price tie or trail Dubnyk and Holtby in every one. In Price's case, it's not even close.

So with the Holtby vs Dubnyk debate, is this where the East (or at least the Metro) finally gets to rub the quality of competition argument in the West's face? Because right now, the East has 5 of the top 6 teams in the NHL in GF/GP, and three of those are Holtby's divisional opponents. If people knock Holtby for having strong teammates, isn't it also fair to acknowledge him for facing strong opponents?

15-20 games is plenty enough for one of the 3 to drop out and another candidate to rise up. Bob especially it wouldn't take much for him to drop out as he's easily 3rd behind other 2 right now

I would love to see Holtby get it. Dub and the Wild need to slow down a bit for that to happen.

Looking at last years numbers though. Did not realize that Holts was the first Vezina winner with single digit regulation losses since Roy in 88/89. Crazy stuff. He has 8 so far this season but has been ridiculous in 2017.

As a Wild fan, I'd give a slight nudge to Holtby. While Dubnyk has been fantastic, he's also had about the best D in the NHL ahead of him and faces the fewest scoring chances in the league. The Wild's xGA and xFsh% are also the top of the league.

Washington isn't bad in the quality against department, but are more middle of the pack. Dubnyk is where a good goalie should be in the Wild's system. Holtby is playing like an Elite Goalie.

The fact Price's name came up like 10 times on the first page is the reason why everyone thinks he's overrated.

Back on question - likely whichever of Holtby or Dubs has a strong finish to the season. Bob with a real but outside chance.

Those are the three clear cut leaders.

Between Dubnuk and Holtby. Could come down to their upcoming head to head match-ups.

Dubnyk, Holtby

And as long as Talbot gets some recognition (votes) for his outstanding season...I'm happy with that.

So wrong!
Price sucks.

Holtby is "overrated", but he is putting together a 3rd consecutive Vezina worthy season. While Price has what, 1? Which I would consider a fluke, because he's never come close to repeating that over a full season before or after. While Holtby is doing the job every year. And let's not mention playoffs where Holtby is the best and Price chokes hard.

Everyone who thought Price was a lock after 5 games (aka idiots)
So wrong!

Dubnyk at the moment with Holtby just behind by a hair. Bob not to far back. Could still win it with an amazing finish if the other 2 falter a bit.
