10 best goalie prospects that have not yet established themselves in the NHL?
Does this mean prispects who havnt played a single NHL game?
In no particular order and from the top of my head:
In no order,
I left out Holtby because IMO he has established himself in the NHL even though he'll probably be spending the season in the AHL this year.
I'm assuming from your username that you might be asking this with more of a fantasy context. It is tough to project goalies since they need an opportunity to start. Cory Schneider has been a great prospect for years but he's been stuck behind Luongo.
Jacob Markstrom is probably the best bet in terms of potential+opportunity. Jack Campbell and Mark Visentin will have the oppotunity to compete for NHL jobs possibly as early as 2012-13. Until he injured his knee, Kevin Poulin was looking like a nice potential sleeper for the Islanders.
Things get murky after that. You might see "older" prospects from Europe/NCAA get chances in the NHL before 2009-2011 drafted goalies. Somebody like Martin Jones has looked pretty good, but he's stuck behind Quick/Bernier.
You want the best asset out there?
this list is pretty good, more so Because you got Irving in their
Corbeil-Theriault : "Saint John's" >_<
It's a great piece of work and people still have to point out a minor negative thing?
this is a terrible list because he doesn't have Campbell in there!
Yeah that is awesome, thanks.
I never said it wasn't a great piece of work, I just think it's funny.
Ben Scrivens is one to keep an eye on, especially if Gustavsson and or (god forbid) Reimer struggles. He isn't top 10 but he's definitely on the rise.
Not sure I agree with the list completely
Long term- Riku Helenius #74 (who couldn't make it in the AHL, and is a backup in the SEL) is better than Hellberg #86, Josh Gibson #90, McCollum #92, and C. Gibson #93.
That's how Justin does it. A prospect new on the scene has to work his way up the chart. Last year he had Pickard in like the 70's, now he's in the top 30 or something.
I know from a Canes perspective Murphy is rising fast and after the 2013 season he has a good shot at being the backup. Frederik Andersen is going to be a good one to watch next year in the SEL. He reportedly dominated in the Danish league and has looked good in World Championship play the last 2 years.
Anders Nilsson at 64? After being top 3 in SEL Last year? He was Voted #5 Prospect in the system on the Islander Boards a couple weeks back
Here's my top 10. Not including, Bernier or Reimer.
1. Jacob Markstrom
2. Jack Campbell
3. Robin Lehner
4. Braden Holtby
5. Andres Lindback
6. Calvin Pickard
7. Alex Stalock
8. Dustin Tokarski
9. Jack Allen
10. Richard Bachman
In no particular order
Because that means so much.
this thread needs some Ben Scrivens
It's a top 10 thread.
I think Markstrom is certainly the top prospect at this point.
He's a good goalie prospect, but not top 10, this was his 1st year of pro hockey and he played in the echl. No matter how good he played in the ahl, one year just isn't good enough to be top 10. Also he's friggin old
He's aging well like a good wine
