Hummm... Jaroslav Halak proved more than Al Montoya in the AHL at this point.

sure montoya did won a wjc mvp ...
I won't deny montoya skillset but there is one player that will make it almost impossible to make it with the NYR and his name is Henrik Lundqvist.

As for Price upside .. they are both very mentaly strong with good puck control goalie but IMO Price get the notch in terms of athletic agility.

anyway again nothing against montoya but he's also 2 years older ..
IMO at their same stage of their respective career price is better.
but again make a case for montoya over price like you want .. it's like compairing fleury & lehtonen..

if there is a 65 game rule shouldn't Malkin be #1?

Thanks for your answer, this is exactly what I was going to say to him.

What the hell is Bourdon doing on the top #10 on a few of those lists. He should have been in the 26 - 50 list.

Let's see if I can make things interesting and add a piece to the puzzle. The first person to reply to this post can ask any question about a player being or not being in the top 10 and I will answer it.

Montoya?
Price?
Radulov?
Whatever?

First person

while hfboard are very strict with their ranking.
your rarely see a guy jump 30 spot even tough he might deserves it ..
it took 4 years or so to remove grigorenko(unless he's in the top 25 ) from the top 50 , samething with Jani Rita.
so to put the last hf ranked 47th overall player in carey price into the top 10 in a spam of 7 months is too much to swallow for hf staff pride.

take that !

If you wish to answer one more, might as well settle the debate in the other thread and tell us whether or not Steve Downie is in the top 25 or off the list all together.

My wild guess...

1. Eric Johnson
2. Anze Kopitar (has only played 63 games due to injury)
3. Nicklas Backstrom
4. Jack Johnson
5. Alexander Radulov
6. Phil Kessel
7. Jonathon Toews
8. Bobby Ryan
9. Cam Barker
10. Marc Staal

If Kopitar doesn't for some reason qualify, then move 3 - 10 up a spot and put Kyle Okoposo in the #10 spot.

I really like this guy! It seems so odd that the islanders picked him, although he did kinda fall into their laps...
