    What would your list be?

    Goalies with less than 20 games of NHL experience are eligible for the list.

    If Markstrom is making a list, Eddie Lack should be on that list.

    Lack was a free agent signing while Markstrom was arguably the best prospect in the NHL before this season. If Markstrom continues to struggle in the AHL while Lack proves this season was not a fluke I'll give Lack more credit.

    What a Vancouver thing to say.

    1. Jacob Markstrom
    2. Jack Campbell
    3. Braden Holtby
    4. Robin Lehner
    5. Jhonas Enroth
    6. Jake Allen
    7. Alex Salak
    8. Mark Visentin
    9. Alex Stalock
    10. Richard Bachman

    That's my list...didn't really put loads of thought into it and you could probably substitute guys like Ben Bishop or Calvin Pickard or Eddie Lack or even Cedric Desjardins in the bottom four if you really wanted to.

    Leafs have stockpiled goalies, Reimer, Rynnas, Schrivens and Owayu(sp) Not sure which is the best of the bunch, but Reimer looked good in the bigs.

    Reimer has played too many games for this list anyway.

    Seriously... And you guys wonder why you're hated.

    I'd love to see where Jones and Zatkoff land. Probably closer to the 10-15 range than the 1-10.

    The names that comes to mind for me are Campbell, Lehner and Markstrom, in no particular order. Where do you guys think the best goalie from this draft will fit in.

    Hackett? Rookie that helped the Aeros go to the Calder Cup finals.

    This is one of the reasons why...UGH SO TEMPTING.

    I don't really agree with Lack being in the top-10, but I don't know why the suggestion upset you. :laugh:

    It's because he didn't just suggest that Läck was a subject for top 10. He suggested that Läck was a better prospect than Markström who is arguably the highest touted goalieprospect right now. Läck had better year in the AHL than Markström, but we can't just judge him on year only, Markström kept Läck on the bench last year while being two years younger.

    It wasn't a suggestion, it was a statement that implied Lack was as good a prospect as Markstrom. It's like when Leaf fans imply Price and Reimer should be considered equal.

    I think Lack could squeeze in the top 10. I don't think that he's as good as Markstrom though.

    I'm in a keeper league and I have quite a few keepers, I was wondering who if any would have potential to become starters in the future

    Atte Engren
    Joacim Eriksson
    Matt Hackett
    Mark Dekanich
    Tyler Bunz
    Zane Gothberg
    Johan Gustafsson
    Mathieu Corbiel-Theriault

    Any info would be greatly appreciated.

    Hackett is the best bet. Wild fans see him as their future #1.

    Atte Engren looked very, very good in his first games in NA, after coming over to Milwaukee after his FEL team was eliminated.

    That's the point. Reimer is not as good as Price. Lack is not as good a prospect as Markstrom.
