    My picks:

    impressed:
    1)Benjamin Conz - keeps getting better and better. My pick for goalie of the tournament
    2)Dimitri Shikin- the simple fact that he's take over the starting job from Igor Bobkov impressed the hell outta me!
    3)Niklas Treutle- I know he hasn't played a lot but I was quite impressed by this kid when I saw him play. he looks like he has the raw skills that with a little development can turn him into a legit prospect.

    unimpressed:
    1)Olivier Roy- just awful in his performances "the great save" he made weren't really that great and the goals he was letting in were terrible
    2)Mark Visentin- for a first round pick he hasn't looked good at all this tournament maybe a big game today might turn that around
    3)Robin Lehner- he had too big of expectations for this tournament that i felt he didn't really live up to. that coupled with the fact that he barely played this tournament really disappointed me.

    Neutral feelings:
    Jack Campbell- although i do agree that campbell has had an awesome tourney he hasn't really done anything to impress me this tournament. the teams he's played havn't really challenged him that much. will have to see how he does against Canada maybe my views on him will change.
    Igor Bobkov- I felt that he played an awesome game against canada. and i would have put him on my list as someone who impressed me but he lost his #1 job this tournament to Shikin who's playing pretty good.

    do you think Bobkov is a legit NHL prospect?

    also comment on you feeling about the rest of the goalies on my lists future's.

    I have to say...Conz fever is a bit over the top right now.

    He's been very good, but let's not go insane with this guy being the second coming of Patrick Roy or Dominic Hasek. Conz is 7th in the tournament in save percentage. I will give him credit, he looked great against the Canadian team, but it's not like he is stealing the show or anything.

    Impressing me, in order:
    1. Ortio
    2. Campbell (has only let in four goals in four games)
    3. Conz (the game against Canada gets him a vote)

    Unimpressed
    1. Roy
    2. Norway's goalie
    3. Roy again

    Bobkov will never make the NHL.

    My picks:

    Impressed:

    1)Benjamin Conz - Do I need to say something about him.

    Unimpressed:

    1)Olivier Roy - Too much weak goals.
    2)Dimitri Shikin - What the hell is this. He have bad lateral movement and bad recovery for rebounds, always tries to poke check.
    3)Robin Lehner - He wasn't good at all for an AHL goalie.
    4)Igor Bobkov - 3rd round pick for the NJ Devils, he is NOT the next Brodeur.

    Neutral feelings:

    Joni Ortio - Had a good tournament but wasn't dominant.
    Mark Visentin - Battle with his juicy rebounds but he hasn't play much.
    Jack Campbell - He played the way he had to play but was not a factor for Team USA.

    Bobkov is a Ducks prospect and was picked by them.

    I lol'd. Ortio was the biggest reason why Finland was able to challenge USA and Russia, he made lots of gamesavers on those two matches (even though he let in the softie in OT against USA).

    All in order

    Most Impressive
    - Conz
    - Ortio
    - Campbell (I know many will probably disagree with me but he's been great, especially considering he's given up very few goals, well before the Canada game that's going on now at least, with a below average defense)

    Most disappointing
    - Lehner (I expected him to be a goalie of the tournament candidate, pretty disappointing performance so far)
    - Roy (Poor rebound control leading to several chances for the opposition, especially in the Sweden game)
    - Bobkov

    Ortio was unbelievable. I didn't see much of anyone else other than him and Campbell, but they both were very good.

    Roy was pathetically terrible though. He's the reason Canada hasn't been absolutely dominant in tis tourney.

    Ortio is great, Bobkov only got the hook because he let in 6, he's still a great goalie
     
  13. Ortio and Conz are the only goalie that have impressed me

    yeah you have your opinion but how can you say visentin hasnt impressed, its because that one really weak goal against the swiss isnt it? i guess the norway goal was weak too but had a solid performance tonight aagainst the states and i expect nothing less then spectacular on wednesday

    Orito and Conz will be fighting for 5th spot tonight. Think that match could set the goalie of the tourney?
    Then again you also have Jack Campbell....

    What game were you watching? Campbell was the only reason the final wasn't 10-1.

    Are you kidding me? Did you even watch his game against Canada? He looked awkward in net. Had trouble moving laterally, looked lost on several occasions and had nearly no rebound control. He was pulled for alot more reasons than giving up 6 goals. He look terrible.

    Ortio has definitely be at the top of the list. Everyone talked about Lehner and Campbell at the start of the tournament, but it's always the ones that no one talks about that end up being the best goalies. No different here.

    I don't see how anyone can put Campbell in their top 3. If you remove the stats and actually watch him, he wasn't that good. He played against weak competition, he should have stood out. Against a strong team in Canada he made some good saves but also struggled with rebounds.

    None of them impressed me. I knew Conz was great. I knew Campbell wasn't as good as the American media/homers made him out to be last year. Good, but will never be dominant in the NHL. As for Canada, let's just say that we haven't had elite goaltending since Roberto Luongo. Roy and Visentin are exposed due to the lack of phenoms on offense/defense outside of Gudbranson.

    i don't see how you can put Ortio ahead of Campbell when Campbell bested him in their head-to-head match-up. The Finns played the same "weak teams" the U.S. did, so that part of the argument doesn't hold water either.

    Bobkov is awful. He lost his starting job for London and now again for Russia. Roy's been poor toobut not nearly as terrible as Bobkov.

    Would love to get the rationale. Unless you had penciled in Jack Campbell as the next Patrick Roy, how can you be disappointed by his play in this tournament?

    Visentin will have the best NHL career from those in the tournament.
