    Good read. Always knew in the back of my mind that the Predators were atop that list, but never stopped to think about how far ahead of the rest of the league they were.

    Mitch Korn isn't mentioned in the article, but I think that's an oversight. Korn being here from Day 1 has given the team great insight into selecting goaltenders that fit the system and giving him guys he can work with and craft into NHL netminders for the team.

    We might find the "consistency" of the Predators to be mundane at times, but in regards to goaltending stability I think there are few teams that wouldn't kill to have the success the Predators have had in net...

    yep. forgot about him.

    and it looks like Fichaud actually had more games than Lasak, which surprises me... I thought Lasak played most of the games in that dreadful 0-10-3 finish to the 02-03 season

    I had to go check out the Predators' all time roster on hockeydb so I could shake my head in disbelief... I could have sworn the likes of Jan Lasak, Brian Finley, and Wade Flaherty had won at least 1 game as a Predator. Great article!

    and don't forget the man who dressed as backup to finley--Allison. Never actually got in a game, but he dressed. So did Smith last year I believe.

    There was a time, into like 2003, that the only two goalies to win for the Preds were Dunham and Vokoun.

    I've always said that Korn is the best 'signing' Poile has ever made.

    Easily the best goaltender coach in the world.
