    2013 is shapping up to one of the best years for goalies in a long time if everything keeps going like it should.

    Philippe Desrosiers
    Alexander Belanger
    Zach Fucal
    Eric Comrie

    these 4 goalies are all wow factor goalies and have the potential to be 1st round picks in there draft year.

    Other goalies who I am still not sure if they belong in this group or not since I have not seen them enough are:

    Ian Jenkins and Eric Vierkant both USA goalies.

    Seems like a very strong year for Canada in general

    Nathan Mackinnon
    Curtis Lazar
    Sean Monahan
    Alex Forsberg
    Hunter Shinkaruk
    Connor Rankin
    Madison Bowey
    Josh Morrissey
    Anthony Duclair
    Jonathan Drouin
    Jared Hauf
    Nic Petan
    Morgan Klimchuk
    Ryan Pulock

    All seem to have top 20 draft potential

    Thanks scoutman1, I hope these guys turn out as it has been some lean years lately as far as quality goaltenders goes.

    Im not to sold on him as of now.

    I wish him the best, but no invite to the US-NTDP and was not drafted into the USHL.

    Im guessing that he will stay with Culver and play on the Prep team next year.

    Im on board with Jenkins, although being 5'10 wont help him.

    As of now Spencer Martin can be included, but who knows where we will be in two years.

    If I have learned one thing watching hockey over the years, it is to NEVER pick a goalie high up in the draft.
     
  8. LOL if they are all drafted in the top 20
     
  9. Price and Fleury have both turned out very well so far. But it tis a risky move.

    He said potential.

    And just one great Canadian goaltender and I'll be happy. We need better young goaltenders.

    Oh absolutely. I didn't mean it as though they won't pan out, its just that for every goalie drafted in the first round, you can find an equal if not better goalie in the 2nd 3rd 4th round ect. The first rounder is better spent on a forward or Dman.

    Ville Husso should be pretty good for Finland.

    Really?

    Rinknet has him listed at 5'10 - 155, and at the USA NTDP U17 tryouts they had him as that as well.

    My guess is he was referring to how goaltending has been our weakest position at the U20s for the last few years.

    Yeah that's how I read it too.


    I would say a portion of it has to fall on the coaches too. Pickard should've been the starter for this year while Jones should've had more playing 2 years ago.

    Martin Brodeur
    Carey Price
    Marc Andre Fleury
    Cam Ward
    Roberto Luongo

    These are probably the five best Canadian goalies in the NHL today. They were all drafted in the first round.

    I would add Spencer Martin and Jordan DeKort to that list as well. Very good tenders and should go high in the upcoming OHL draft.

    Comparisons for my top 5

    Nathan Mackinnon - Sidney Crosby
    Curtis Lazar - Jarome Iginla
    Hunter Shinkaruk - Patrick Kane
    Connor Rankin - Brayden Schenn
    Madison Bowey - Drew Doughty

    I can see it going that way as well in the draft, also this draft is better than 2003/2008.
    My call is Forsberg is going to drop in the draft by a longshot, hes not that good, a bunch of people I know played against him and said he'd be nothing without his shot and is so freakin slow.

    I don't think so. He was born in Edmonton and I'm pretty sure his mom is Canadian as well. He's only 15 (turns 16 in July) so he almost assuredly has not acquired American citizenship. He's spent more of his life living and playing hockey though in California so if he wants citizenship he'll be able to eventually get it since he'll still be living in the USA with Tri-City.

    I'd imagine he'd represent Canada regardless.
