Toskala = .927 (11 GP), .930 (28), .901 (37), .908 (38), .904 (66) = .910 (181)

Can somebody explain to me how one mediocre career gets you voted 13th (while Huet, Backstrom, Bryzgalov, etc are still on the board) and the other will be near the bottom of the league?

I think a lot of people forget about Bryz sometimes. Phoenix improved quite a bit with him in net, and I believe he also has had more playoff experience then the remaining candidates, one of which years which he proved himself going in as a backup goaltender.

I went this Backstrom, but after seeing how neck and neck Toskala and Bryz are I shoulda went with Bryz.

Toskala, Huet, then Bryz.

Backstrom benefits from Minny's system, ala Roloson and Fernandez

Seeing him at the Worlds makes me believe otherwise.

Went with Backstrom.

Nabokov>Lundqvist???
Nabokov's Save % average is .911! Last 3 years:
05-06 .885
06-07 .914
07-08 .910

Lundqvist average: .917
05-06 .922
06-07 .917
07-08 .912
Thing is, somehow Lundqvist is getting worse and worse

i would vote for Letonen if he could stay healthy for a full season. the guys got all the tools to put it together to be a very good top 10 tender. he put up very good numbers for being on a brutal atlanta team. however i voted for toskala because he seems to have the consistency and he can stay healthy.
