    There's a Tuukka Rask to Mika Noronen or Ari Ahonen comparison.

    Fact? No.

    But it is a card that can be played if others choose to ignore the fact that Pogge carried Team Canada and was the MVP of the Canadian Hockey League for a reason.

    Jeff Glass is a good goalie, but in terms of talent he, rather, very few stand up against Justin Pogge. He's not a phenom, but he does belong up there with almost any goaltending prospect.

    He's possibly the best "square-up" goaltending prospect there is, also easily one of the best stickhandling goalies you'll see, he's up there with Martin Brodeur in that department. As well as a great glovehand and a proven winner, since he carried Canada to a Gold in a year where they weren't supposed to win it. He's also very quick, there's a quote from a goaltending coach that compares his quickness to Marc-Andre Fleury.

    I remember the day of the draft, a member on here that had watched Pogge play almost every game in Prince George compared his style of play to Martin Brodeur, and he's been proven correct. They're very similar.

    Pogge most certainly did not carry Team Canada.
