    Tbh he is one of the best few goalies in Sweden right now. Sv% be damned. There is a reason he is on the national team...

    he has majorly outplayed two SHL vets over last two years.

    If he was on Frolunda, Farjestad, Lulea or Skelleftea he would be at like .92o sv%+ for sure...

    That being said he is probably looking at 2022-23 for NHL job.

    So you're saying Fedotov/Ersson on the NHL club in 202-23 and we trade Hart, Sandstrom, Tomek and Ustimenko. :popcorn:

    Things are starting to get really crowded roster wise at every position, which is good for fans but bad for prospects.

    It does mean a lot of players will probably spend an extra season in Europe or the AHL before decisions are made (promote, trade or don't resign), which means depth will primarily come from prospects b/ they'll be well marinated and more likely to be NHL ready when they come up without doing the Lehigh Valley shuffle.

    They should roll three goalies in the AHL. They should probably have last year with occasional stints in Reading (close enough) for the guy who was #3 that game.

    I dont know how 60 games of Lyon and Berube really helped the organisations future...

    Thankfully they dont have the Reading option this year.

    Last year I think they really screwed up signing Berube.

    That Reading team was hell to play behind and I dont think taught two very athletic goalies very much at all.

    They did not need to work on 3v0 and 2v1s etc in a semi-pro league with very little structure. Especially when one had been above average in over 100 games at a higher level.

    I think Berube was insurance if Elliott went down, after the nightmare of 2018-19 (starting 8 different goalies).
    Lyon has also had injury issues.

    No-one is going to look back on his stats for 2019-20 and 2020-21 and be impressed...

    but I doubt there are more than a handful of goalies in Europe who could have done better.

    His .903 sv%... the other goalies who have played are at .860 sv% between them.

    Look on the bright side, he's getting lots of practice.
    It'll prepare him for the NHL when the Flyers play the Lightning.

    36/39 for a .923 sv% tonight in a 4-1 loss.

    Been the best goalie in the SHL the last 6 weeks.

    Thanks for the updates! It's been interesting following the game by game commentary and seeing his numbers improve.

    Following him almost every game last 2 years he is really good on a bad team ,he is a future nr 1 in NHL.
    Seeing goaltenders last 30 years developp from sweden he is top 5 on that list.

    I mean, his last three years have been very, very good tbh.

    When you compare his team with him vs without:

    2018-19: .933 vs .889 (4.9% better)
    2019-20: .895 vs .880 (1.7% better)
    2020-21: .916 vs .871 (5.2% better)
    Overall: .915 vs .881 (3.9% better)

    He has been worth right around an extra goal per game for his team over three seasons on average.

    Statistically he has saved 91 goals more than his back-ups would have over those three years had they played. In 5389 minutes.

    89.82 games played. 91 extra goals saved.

    He really is one of the best goalies in the league.

    The difference with him in net is so ridiculous.

    I think this gives more context to just how good he has been.

    It would be nice to have those detailed stats, for example, I can't figure out if Federov is having a good or meh season.
    He's 13th in S%, but 3 of the goalies ahead of him play for Avangard Omsk, which suggests they're a product of the team.

    Roman Will, who starts ahead of him is a 28 year old goalie who put up a .922 S% in the SHL last season for Rogle BK.
