Goaltending Prospects

I was wondering if you know of any goalie prospects that fly under the radar a bit that have a chance to be fairly good NHL'ers.

Mike Murphy for Carolina is one that not many consider. CHL goaltender of the year last year. Unorthodox reflex style goaltender that inexplicably gets the job done. Compares to Tim Thomas.

I agree with Murphy. Other notables:

- Corey Schneider
- Jonas Enroth
- Dan Larsson
- Tuuka Rask
- Jacob Markstrom
- Olivier Roy
- Harri Sateri

Corey Schneider is so under-rated. Is he expected to be on the Canucks this year? If not he's easily the best goalie not in the NHL

Now that Gustavsson is expected to be in the NHL this season, I agree.

I think he will be good, but don't go buy the jersey yet.

This guy hasn't even played an NHL, AHL or WHL game and he is considered the best goalie prospect outside of the NHL?

Leaf fans can't get worse... and they're already at an all time low.

It wasn't just leafs fan saying that, a lot of people considered him the best goalie outside of the NHL a little while back

I think Trevor Cann has some potential...

30-10-1 record with London last year, and was great in the first two rounds of the playoffs (but was horrible in the 3rd round...where he apparently was sick or something).

Labeled the best goaltender outside of the NHL last season, the 6'3", 181 lb backstop was the top goalie in the Swedish Elite League last season while playing for Farjestad. He posted a 1.96 goals against average and a save percentage of .932 in the regular season, and led the team to the league championship this spring.

I usually don't wish failure upon players, but I hope Gustavsson flops just to dissapoint all the Toronto fans expecting him to be the next Lundqvist or Backstrom.

The Eliterserien is a better league than the WHL and (you could argue, though I say they are closer than fans of either would like to admit) the AHL. Why should he have to play in a development league to be considered the best not in the NHL?

Malkin was considered the best player not in the NHL in 2005/2006. Probably a good assessment.

The worst thing about Gustavsson is his terrible nickname. Pierre McGuire must be having wet dreams about working Leafs games next year

Cory Schneider and Jhonas Enroth do both have at least the potential to be top 15 goalies at the NHL level.

Their problem is that they have to go past two of the best Golies in the League: Luongo, and Miller.

Just discussing Caps' prospects, I feel like Michal Neuvirth and Braden Holtby both probably slip under the radar a bit, being overshadowed by Varlamov. Neuvirth arguably out-dueled both Rask and Schneider in the playoffs (he was on the better team in both cases, but at worst he held his own) despite a real rollercoaster season, bouncing around because he didn't have a permanent spot at the start of the season. The team is apparently very high on Holtby as well and maybe he doesn't get the same press.

Deserved to be drafted, but I wouldn't consider him a top 50 goaltending prospect by any means. 45 wins, 9 losses is very impressive. But being on the team with the most goals scored certainly helps. Faced an average of less than 25 shots a night, didn't lead the league in save % or GAA. Really, he didn't have to do much each night with not being bombarded with shots and his offense averaging goals a night. So I think that wins statistic is insanely inflated by the offense. His other stats are good, but not amazing. On the other hand, Dustin Tokarski played on a team with an average offense and had a 1.97 GAA and .937 save% in the regular season and a 1.70 GAA, .947 save% in the playoffs. PLus he was amazing last year aswell.

I've always liked Michal Neuvirth. He's a beast in the playoffs. He has never lost a series, has an OHL Championship, AHL Championship + Playoff MVP (as a rookie)

So I guess Tokarski and Neuvirth are my two guys.
