    In no particular order and from the top of my head:

    Jacob Markstrom
    Jack Campbell
    Braden Holtby
    Anders Lindback
    Robin Lehner
    Jake Allen
    Mike Murphy
    Calvin Pickard
    Jhonas Enroth
    Matt Hacket

    In no order,

    Jacob Markstrom
    Anders Lindback
    Robin Lehner
    Jake Allen
    Jhonas Enroth
    Matt Hackett
    Leland Irving
    Mark Visentin
    Alex Stalock
    Kevin Poulin

    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.

    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

    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:laugh:
