    Both Bryan Bridges and Thomas Greiss are unknown goalies for many people. For the one that know them, which one as the biggest potential?

    I've seen Bridges play a bunch of times and he's very good. IMO the knock on him is that hes reached his cieling and that would be a career minor leager. Since you're asking about potential, Id say its fairly low for Bridges. Never seen Greiss.

    The fact that both are twenty years old but one is the top goalie prospect for perhaps the deepest goalie pool in the league, was a top goaltender in a men's league and started in an Olympic game against Canada (in which, settling down after the first period, did not look out of place among NHL talent) while the other remains an undrafted, middle-of-the pack overage junior goalie...gives you an idea on who has more potential.

    What Patty is trying to say is... Put Greiss in your crease.

    One of? No disrespect to the other Germans (Gogulla, Schutz, Braun, etc), but Thomas Greiss is not just the best German prospect, he has a very good chance to become the best German goalie ever, even counting Olaf Kolzig as German.

    He has a very good chance of being better than Kolzig!? Than why isn't he in the top 10 prospects in the entire league?

    He's a solid prospect, but to say he has a "very good chance" of being better than Kolzig is saying a bit much. His potential is probably in his area, but he has a long way to go still.

    As lame as the joke is I'd rather have a Greissy joke than a good one told on a Bridge.

    Wow, that was even worse, its not even cheesy funny. Greiss > Bridges.

    He may be the best German prospect, but let´s be honest, that doesn´t say much ;)

    But I am pretty sure that Greiss will develop into at least a solid Nr.1 goalie. He is pretty far along in his development already and San Jose´s goalie-coaches haven´t worked that much with him yet...
