Best Goalie Prospect-Poll #1

I wanted to run a series of polls to see how everyone ranked the young goaltending prospects. Each of the polls will take approx. 24-48 hrs.


Inspired by Fleuryfan's Penguins prospect poll.


Here is the poll for #1...

Lehtonen

He's considered a god on these boards, no?

In my opinion, I would take Lehtonen, Fleury, Ouellet, and Toivonen over Ahonen.

Finland has great prospects in Lehtonen, Toivonen, and Ahonen.

I've got it like this

Kari<--Jesus with goalie pads on according to most*rolls eyes*
MAF<--Looks like he could be a superstar..hopefully he doesn't get Blackburned
Max<--Had plenty of time to develop and looks to be on his way to success..just needs to chance to play.
Ahonen<--he's VERY underrated because he's stuck behind Marty and everyone knows it so he gets no exposure..if he ever gets to play or gets moved he's gonna prove a lot of people wrong.

Blackburn could still become a VERY good goailie, but the chances just aren't as good.

BTW, why is their no Blackburn or Lundqvist on this poll? I wouldn't vote for either of them, but I think that both are better than some of the goalies on the poll.

Speaking for most Bruin fans - we are eagerly awaiting Hannu Toivonen's arrival in Boston. I was shocked when the Bruins picked him so high ( # 29 in 2002 ) but he has already shown that the Bruins made a great pick. He should be the starting goalie next season in Providence and then battle Andrew Raycroft for the # 1 spot in the 2005 season.

Although I'd love to say it's Cam Ward... Lehtonen has this one without a question.

Lehtonen's a year ahead, and hasn't done a thing to be usurped by Fleury. So, Kari gets my vote.

Lehtonen

not by much, nor 'hands down.' But his devellopment didn't endure the same hiccups that Fleury did.

Basically for me it is:

1A: Lehtonen
1B: Fleury

Ahonen is garbage

doesnt anyone notice the stats this guy puts up, i mean doesnt put up,
All he is a lot of hot air, riding the rep that lamirillo has for getting gems, the only gem that NJ has is Parise and Philman.

Anyways, i voted for Maxi
