    I just posted on the HF Top50 Prospects thread saying that i feel that Toivonen is a better prospect then Leclair,Oulette,Emry, or Bryzgalov.
    Now i never saw Bryzgalov play so i dont really know but ive seen plenty of the other netminders in question and i deffinatly feel that Toivonen is something special. Not only does he have unbelievable skill and upside, he also has an awsome attitude and willingness to pay his dues and learn. IMO he is right now the third best Goal prospect in the game behind MA Fluerry and Kari Lehtonen. I just wanna hear some input from outher hockey fans, lemme know how ya feel bout Hannu and how he fairs amongst the other goal prospects out there.

    I agree with you. He has been underrated by the rankings. To me, he is just behind Fleury and Lehtonen as the top goaltenders of the future.

    You would even put him ahead of Emery? I don't know about that. LeClaire has done pretty well. Didn't he have a 50 something save shutout?

    Yeah id have to say that i like Tiovonen even better then Emery. I know that my opinion may be a little biased, but Toivonen is just the type of Goaltender that just makes ya feel confident when hes in the net. Hes so big he takes up so much room , while still moving excellent and showing awsome mobility. I mean when he goes down in the butterfly he just spring right back up with ease, he doesnt even need any leverage, he just springs back up. I dont even really know how to explain it but i know that hes something special. I cant wait till the day when hes starting in Boston, Hannu is gonna play his way into the starting job in Beantown and force an eventual Raycroft trade as crazy as that sounds right now :teach:

    3-Toivonen

    I like your list best, nice work (though Toivenen is stuck behind a 23 year old vezina candidate, that doesn't bode too well for his future. I smell trade)

    This is not a bad problem. Two Top 10 Goalies! We will get a good amount back for whoever they trade. It will be a tough call on who to let go

    I agree except for Oulette, whom I'd take ahead of Toivonen. The rest I'd say he's better than.

    As well, I think young Yotes goaltender David LeNeveu could jump up and end up being better than a lot of young guys out there.

    All in all though, Toivonen is way up there.

    On this thread, none. But I can find oodles and oodles of posts declaring that Ron Hainsey, Mike Komisarek, Chris Higgins, Perezhogin and whoever else happens to be the flavor of the month will dominate.

    It's very comical.

    I dunno about that. I think Raycroft will always be better than him, frankly.
     
  18. oh well, hannu will play backup first, than one of them will have to be traded. We will get a lot in return for one of them.
