    Who are the better goalies in the upcoming draft? I rarely check this board and I havent heard about any top goalies so far, so could anyone tell me who the projected top guys are?

    I'm thinking it depends on who you like the most since there's not really anyone that breaks away from the bunch.

    Most of those that have been following closely the draft will tell you that Joel Gistedt, Jeremy Smith, Trevor Cann and Tyson Sexsmith are the main top 4.

    On draft day though, if a team likes a goalie better than everyone else and decides to take a flyer on him early on, all hail could break lose and we could see a very weird goalie draft.

    Here's my top 15, for what it's worth:

    01 Joel Gistedt
    02 Trevor Cann
    03 Jeremy Smith
    04 Tyson Sexsmith
    05 Brad Phillips
    06 Kent Patterson
    07 Mark Owuya
    08 Linden Rowatt
    09 Timo Pielmeier
    10 Justin LeClerc
    11 Kurtis Mucha
    12 Josh Unice
    13 Mattias Modig
    14 Reid Ellingson
    15 Bradley Eidness

    Eighth isn't "so low." Most teams would rather take a chance on an 18-year-old with a higher ceiling than on a late-blooming 19 1/2-year-old who was passed over once in his draft year. I think he'll be a second- or third-round pick and have every chance to make the NHL. Having him ranked eighth doesn't mean he's not good.

    Talent wise I think I'd agree, yet it always seems to happen, most likely to a team with multiple 1st rounders and no early 2nd rounders (Phili)

    T. Cann
    J. Gistedt
    L. Rowat

    Then Patterson, Sexsmith, Leclerc etc.

    I don't think Modig is draft eligable since he's 20, wouldn't be surprised if a NHL team tried to sign him as a free agent though.

    I don't think he actually played for the Winterhawks this year. He signed with them, but I think he played high school hockey in Minnesota for Richfield.

    PEI Rocket, Antoine Lafleur had a great regular season as he took over the #1 job mid way through.
    27 wins, and finished 2nd in the Q league with a .909 save %.

    Had a rough playoff, as his team lost in 7gms in the 1st rd.

    Kid will be a decent pick for whomever takes him, and will continue to improve his game.

    he sure is. first of all he is born in 87. everyone who is born in 87 are still eligible. and second. europeans are eligible two years longer then players from NA. wich means 85 born europeans are still eligible for the upcoming draft.
