How does his future as an NHL goalie look??? Any thoughts ???
Toivinen is going to be a future franchise goalie, and Raycroft as well. You'll see one or the other traded to fulfill being a franchise goalie no doubt.
Personally I'd go with Raycroft but Toivinen may prove me wrong when he gets his chance.
The Bruins expect alot out of him, so much so i think it is part of the reason they aren't as worried about Raycroft holding out. Even though they signed Tim Thomas i would look for Hannu to make the Bruins this year as a backup and play in about 25-30 games or if Raycroft holds out for Hannu to start.
I just got the new McKeen's Yearbook and it has him listed as the 2nd best Goaltender prospect in hockey (sandwiched betweeen Lehtonen and Ward)
Khabibulin part 2.
awsome young goalie. i'm a very jealous and nervous habs fan.he will give us problems for the next 10 years.imo he is a better goalie than raycroft and has the potential to win a vezina or two.of course just like anyone he could bust too.
