Claude Lemiuex in the 1986 Adams Division finals, game 7 overtime goal past Mike Liut that eliminated the Hartford Whalers and established Lemiuex as a playoff warrior for years to come...3 cups, one Conn Smythe later

Scott Stevens hit on Slava Kozlov in the 1995 Stanley Cup final in Detroit, signaled the change in Scott Stevens determination to win...he would win 3 cups and a Conn Smythe later, but this moment signaled his transition...

Very true and I am a 25 year Penguin fan but I don't think he has cemented his #1 overall pick status. I would expect a first overall goalie to become a top 5 goalie in the league really quickly. I still hold enormous hope for him but sometimes that hope wavers.

I'm thinking of Richard Zednik here. He was always cutting to the net until the nasty hit by McLaren in the playoffs (2002 I believe). He was never the same player after that hit, never cutting to the net and only playing along the boards

He had the two best seasons of his career the two seasons after the hit, recording a career high of 31 goals in 2003, assists (24) in 2004, and points of 50 in both years. Truth is, he just wasn't that great. He was decent 2nd line talent, getting 1st line minutes because he played for a mediocre team

Name me the last goalie who established himself as top 5 at age 22.

Looks like I have been given some homework. I better get on that.

It was a rhetorical question my good man, though don't let that stop you from hitting the books haha

I can actually give you one answer...Jim Carey, who theoretically could have been considered a top 5 goalie by some circa 1996, when he would have been only 21. And we all know how that turned out.

Andy Sutton cutting out Jason Allison's knee.

Jason Allison was never the same player, during a time where the Kings looked like they could establish themselves as a bet to be a consistent participant in the playoffs.

The Kings went south, so did Jason Allison's career and Sutton's reputation.

Yes!!!!
a Calder doesn't necessarily equate to a top 5 goaltender. Now if he'd won a Vezina instead . . . .
