I disagree with you:

There won't be any Lehtonen hangover, Toivonen is as close as you can get to a just as good goalie.
Great to hear!!!

Was great for slovakia at the U18 tournament last year.
he's been on fire so far this year , if the team in front of him play well he could surprise many observers .

I never saw him play but numbers talk , look on HF Habs page for more info .

I've heard scouts compare him to Dominik Hasek.

I'm not trying to say Goepfert is a better goaltender than Fleury, but at last year's WJC I'd say he was. The kid was a god out there.

I obviously can't say with any definite certainty that Goepfert or Fleury were better because I was working during most of the games, but Goepfert did stand out to me. I recall him being bombarded with shots and standing on his head nearly every game.
Or maybe I'm just trying to shake of a possible Canadian bias and go for the Yankee.
