    Each draft year you hear of a goalie.

    2010 - Campbell, Pickard
    2009 - Koskinen, Lehner
    2008 - Pickard, McC, Markstrom
    2007 - ... was a sad year
    2006 - Bernier, Enroth

    etc.

    So who are the top goalies for this season? Or will we get a 2007 for goalies?

    More of a down year for North American goalies this year (outside of John Gibson). Big year for Euro goalies.

    The best Swedish goalie eligible for this draft is by a country mile Magnus Hellberg, who's gotten his first glance of the senior level for Almtuna in the SEL-2. He's an overager for this draft but his size and smooth goaltending technique will get him drafted no doubt.

    Out of the other Euro goalies, Samu Perhonen is an intruiging prospect as well, good size and been pretty good for the national teams, even though he's not been tested at the senior level yet.

    In the OHL Mike Morrison of the Rangers is putting up impressive numbers.
    3rd in GAA
    3rd in save percentage.

    Christopher Gibson (QMJHL) and Samu Perhonen (Finnish Jr. A) are both finnish and top ranked goalie prospects. Both are big butterfly goaltenders. "Perhonen" even means Butterfly in finnish.

    Well, here is my list of 2011 hopefuls. I don’t consider myself an expert on Goalies so there are probably others I have missed. What is scary is the absence of top notch Canadian goalies - it used to be you could count on Quebec to made up for any shortfalls but the Patrick Roy effect has run its course.

    2nd
    SWE Hellberg, Magnus – 6’5’’ 185 – 4-Apr-91 - Almtuna SWE 2 – 31 2.04 .936
    FIN Gibson Christopher – 6’1’’ 198 – 27-Dec-92 – Chicoutimi QMJHL – 31 2.05 .931
    FIN Perhonen, Samu – 6’3’’ 174 – 3-Mar-93 – JYP U20 FIN U20 – 29 2.71 .922
    3rd
    USA Gibson, John – 6’3’’ 205 – 14-Jul-93 – USA U18 USHL - 26 2.75 .915
    CZE Galansky, Tadeas – 6’3’’ 189 – 29-Dec-92 – Saginaw OHL – 15 3.10 .902
    CAN Williams, Eric – 6’1’’ 160 – 29-Apr-93 – Prince Albert WHL – 36 3.56 .903

    CAN Morrison, Michael – 6’0’’ 175 – 7-Nov-92 – Kitchener OHL – 24 2.52 .916
    USA Keeney, John – 6’2’’ 193 – 5-Mar-93 – Omaha USHL - 26 2.21 .920
    CZE Machovsky, Matej – 6’2’’ 187 – 29-Jul-93 – Brampton OHL – 19 2.47 .909
    5th
    SWE Rasmussen, Emil – 6’3’’ 172 – 28-Apr-93 - Timrå U20 SWE U20 – 2 2.50 .919

    The Hellberg size-and-technique-combo is so intruiging, even though he's two years late. I think 29 teams will regret they waited in a few years.

    I could see Anaheim drafting at least 2 goaltenders this draft...specially since we are really thin, and who knows what happens with Hiller [granted I wouldn't expect any goalie to come in for at least 4 years]

    Ideally we could get Hellberg and C.Gibson as from what I've read they have some good potential.

    Lars Volden recently made his debut for the Norwegian Senior team. He actually had a shutout in his first game as Norway lost 1-0 to the Ukraine in a shootout.

    I have no idea if he'll be drafted though.

    John Gibson topped the CSS-mid-term rankings for goalies in the 2011 draft.


    Another player to watch is Christopher Gibson who is rated #2 on CSS scouting list.

    For European goalies look no further then Finissh prospect Samu Perhonen.

    Another reason to not be upset by Blues keeping their pick this year?

    I don't see the Avs taking this guy in the top 5 of round 2. Maybe in the third round though or if they get a late 2nd somehow.

    Now I haven't seen Campbell play, but HOLY sausage, if he's a quicker goalie than John Gibson, he'd be the Usain Bolt of goaltending. Gibson is the fastest goalie i've seen all year in the USHL.
