    2.Toivonen - 26 points
    3.Harding - 50 points
    4.Deslauriers - 62 points (rated higher than Lenevue, because he had a higher vote)

    6.Ward - 69 points
    7.Stephan - 79 points
    8.Daigneault - 84 points

    In my opinion this is a great looking list.

    Since he has 64 points wouldn't he be higher rated then the 2 above him?

    I made an error, he had a rating of 84, not 64.

    Yep, he slid into the top ten goaltenders that were drafted in 2002. I'm still not quite sold on him though, mainly because of his size.

    I think Geopfert will end up being better than 9th...but I'm not really going to argue because, quite simply, I'll be beyond sadened if he ends up getting alot of playing time here....

    Depth is still a great thing to have though.

    Yeah, Fleury will definatly hinder his playing time. Could be a good backup to Fleury though if he can eventually beat out Caron for the job. Once again though small goaltenders are usually a hit or a miss. I think Geopfert will be one of the few small goaltenders that will shine though.

    I have a better feeling about him than Mensator for some reason. Maybe it was the game he played against Canada at the WJC a couple years ago, he was simply amazing!

    Problem is, it's not just Fleury and Caron...there's Chiodo and Duba as well.

    Chiodo has already shown what he can bring and Duba has been one of Europe's best goalies for a few years now.
