  1. Minnesota picks ANTON KHUDOBIN over a bunch of other goalies...He's from Kazahkistan...excuse the spelling...

    I'm really starting to doubt their European Scouting Staff...

    I don't know who he is but these countries are starting to produce some excellent goalies. Germany has a prospect with the Sharks whose name I can't recall. Kazakhstan has Evgeni Nabokov. And people didn't know why the Avs drafted a Swiss goalie by the nameof David Aebisher a couple of years ago.
     
  3. Here's hoping he's another Nabokov...He's from the same country...

    I am happy with Josh Harding. He can fill out the Wilds' AHL affiliates!

    The Sharks prospect is Dimitri Patzold I think.

    He was born in Kazakhstan as well.
     
  6. I'm really happy for Josh Harding but we need another goalie to push him...He won't be going to the AHL.

    Hmmm two from Kazakhstan...

    the sharks actually have 2 german goaltending prospects, patzold and ehelechner. with the addition of greiss at this weekends draft, they have 3 german goalies. not to mention sturm, goc, ehrhoff, and hospelt from germany. san jose is just one example of teams looking outside of conventional sources for talent, and finding success. i think we'll see more of that in years to come.

    If I remember correctly , Khudobin has been the No.1 goalie of Russian U-18 National team the whole season.
