goalie question

saw several goalies with .93% and .95% SV%
was the defense so good or the goalies?
Which goalie could be a NHL goalie soon? Born 83 and later?

thanks LP

Assuming you are talking a about these stats, the young Finnish goalies that I predict to have some sort of NHL future are Säteri, Koskinen and Tuokkola.

Säteri played for a really bad team but still managed to keep his % over 92 in his rookie season.

Koskinen, another rookie, will probably have a stint in the NHL because North American people have some homoerotic fixation to size (Koskinen is 6'7). Well, OK, there might also be the fact that be is quite a good goalie...

Tuokkola, who barely fits your criteria (born 83), played a great regular season and exploded in the playoffs (95.40 ain't that bad of a save percentage), making it possible for JYP to sweep the finals.

Other potential FA goalies

Besides the three that you mentioned, what is the likelihood that any other Finnish goalies move to North America from either the SM-Liiga or Mestis - as did Niemi and Wiikman? How would you rate Mika Jarvinen or SaiPa's Tarkki among the group of goalies eligible to be free agents?

And is there any chance that Hannu Toivonen returns to the NHL?
