Riku Helenius

Riku Helenius - Finnish goalie ranked 46 by THN.

Apparently he tore it up at the WJC tourney.

With Finland appearing to be more and more a goaltender factory. How would everyone feel if we reached and took this guy with our last first rounder or one of our early second rounders?

Id rather have Jhonas Enroth

http://eliteprospects.com/player.php?player=3688

profile says:
calm, butterfly-goalie, very stable, rarely does a poor game. Even though hes not big, he covers the net quite well and plays a bit agressive.

first class reflexes, very good and fast along the ice. Good glove-hand and does not have many weaknesses. Had he been 4 inches taller his job would have been easier but on the other hand he compensates it with agility and a quick head.

Take 'em both, if the Caps keep their picks.

There are a couple interesting goalie prospects in this years draft, I expect we walk away with at least one of them. But you know what they say, two is better than one...

I wouldn't mind at all if we lined our pockets with Helenius and Berra

I would flip for joy if the Caps drafted Berra, I love this guy after seeing what he did at WJC's.

They could use their second or third pick on Helenius.

The #4 and the #22 or #23 overall, plus three second-round picks, two of them early in the second round.

Dear lord, they're loaded. I fear them if they can grab a solid netminding prospect. Or can acquire secret voodoo craftwerk thus prolonging Kolzig's career.

If we can't use the Nashville 1st and our three 2nd rounders to trade up, draft both Enroth and Helenius.

Tinner's thoughts on drafting goalies:

When in doubt always take the Finnish guy.

That is all.

I wouldn't mind a finn. What about Stana, any chance he'll come back?
