    Been said before but Rask and Price are #1-2 both of them should be star goaltenders and then there are few who have the possibility of becoming really good i believe Lavessuear (sp?) should be quite good too

    Pier-Olivier Pelletier is a name that should raise a few eyebrows, also Plante and Vincent.

    Jeff Frazee's stock should definitely rise after the U-18's.

    Ondrej Pavelec. I'd have him third behind Rask and Price.

    It has to be Tyler Plante after this amazing playoff run that hes been on...the kid is improving his draft position on a daily basis.

    Lalonde Belleville - Played really well in Belleville and still under most peoples radars. He's a little on the short side though.
    Plante Brandon - Good and big goalie will likely be taken earlier than he should thanks to a strong play-off run.

    Maxim Joyal is also good but I'd wait until my last couple of picks because he's a year older than everyone else (July 86 birthday).

    I wouldn't take any of these guy's before the 3rd round right now though (4th for Joyal).

    Another guy to keep your eye on is Ben Bishop, who will be at Maine next year.

    I'm thinking Nicklas Backstrom from Finland is gaining some attention with his play at the Worlds. I know he's impressed me. He is one to watch.

    I hear that Matt Lundin might be taking a year off from Maine to play in the USHL, if Bishop comes up and provided that Howard doesn't leave Maine early. Have you heard/read this too?

    Wouldn't surprize me at all to see Plante pass Levasseur. He continues to shine in the spotlight. In the last two years I think he is 10-0 in games where his team is facing elimination. Last year he won a national championship and this year as a 17 year old rookie he has his team in the WHL inals. Amazing performance by the WHL Rookie of the Year.

    I'm probably going to get crapped on but I consider Plante right up with Price. He's playing like a champion and he comes up huge in big games.

    I have heard that. It would be interesting if Bishop was thrown to the fire so early. He's the sort of goaltender that could probably use a year on the bench to continue to grow into his frame and work on the fundamentals.

    Really? that's ashame, I liked what I saw from the younger Lundin but I don't know anything about Bishop.

    Falloon I like a lot, and from the little I saw I was impressed with Brown's D'Alba

    Jeff Frazee might have to say something about that after the u18's where he was definately the better goaltender.
