Discussion in 'NHL Draft - Prospects' started by august, Oct 29, 2003.
Who is the best goaler since the beginning of the year in the QMJHL?
my vote goes to Martin Houle of Cape Breton.
What about Corey Crawford?
Martin Houle and David Tremblay are very hot
rookie Alexandre Vincent played very well for Chicoutimi . He's 17 , 6'4 , 205lbs . He played some semi-pro hockey as a foward when midget season were over .
I don't know what Jeff Deslauriers is doing(injury?) but Vincent is red hot and one of them could be traded .
CHL best goalie last year Adam Russo seem to struggles so far this season .. En francais
1. Martin Houle - Cape Breton
2. Corey Crawford - Moncton
3. David Tremblay - Gatineau
4. Jeff Deslauriers - Chicoutimi
5. Julien Ellis - Shawinigan
Julien Ellis in the top 5 ? Alexnadre Vincent earn a spot on your top 5 i think...
got to agree here Ellis hasn't earned top five spot yet.
Don't forget Maxime Daigneault who's real hot too
Ellis and Deslauriers have both been disapointing so far this year. Daigneault, Poitras, and Russo(plays behind a brutal hockey team) have all been better then those 2 so far.
Houle is #1 in stats, but I dont think he's been the best in the league. Hard to give him OR Tremblay that honour when the teams ahead of them are so good.
One thing is sure, there are so many great goalies in this league !
Guillaume LavallÃ©e and Cedrick Desjardins are doing a great job with the Oceanic who are playing a very offensive style
26 shots per game might be a lot in the NHL, but its not not the Q.
There are the goalies who have played the bulk of their teams games. The lowest? Martin Houle. And that does not even give you the quality of shots that a guy like Adam Russo would face compared to Houle.
You can not use GAA and sv % to compare goaltenders. You need to actually watch them play. So far Houle has been good, but he's not the best. I also bet that the Eagles go get an experienced backup for him for the playoffs during the trade period, just in case he can not handle the pressure.
Guess the Screaming Eagles aren't missing Fleury that much.
I think we'll survive
Anyone else notice Fabio Luongo? Hes Roberto Luongo's brother and I think he is a rookie in the QMJHL. I'm not sure how he fairs in comparison but I think hes a little bit smaller than Roberto.
He has 1% of his brothers talent. Not a knock on Fabio, but Roberto is the man.
Fabio is small too. 5'10 160 or something. He played well early on but hasnt done much in the recent weeks.
