    A little older (23) but Ilya Proskuryakov actually looks like someone that could play in the NHL and last I read in an interview he's interested... (but no contract offers just yet)

    Proskuryakov is Erik Ersberg-like at best. Very small and weak.

    Alistratov is 5'7. No NHL upside.


    There are some good prospects, but it's a crapshoot to tell right now who will develop in a World Class goalie. Shikin isn't very good, Bobkov is big and with potential but struggles this season.

    Proskuryakov is very good, but not sure he can achieve a Bobrovsky-like season. Alistratov is a no-go.
    Bobkov is the next one.

    I think Bobkov will be a really good goalie too in 3-4 years time. I would mention Khudobin as well - shocked he's not getting a shot in Minnesota - he's 24 and entering prime and has decent stats in the AHL

    Alistratov is a "blatnoy"...

    Bobkov, Pechurskiy and Sadikov are all talented goaltenders, but they are still raw.

    Ah ! Alistratov 5'7 i didn't knew this !

    Igor Bobkov seems to be your favorite ...

    What about Gaiduchenko ? Brashkin ? Kostenko ?

    Maxim Alyapkin get draft 4th overall in the KHL draft ... Is he good ?

    And Denis Perevozchikov ?

    Any info on 2012 NHL eligible Vasilevsky? Played really well as an underager at U-18 last year, and currently has great stats in MHL and Salavat-94.

    Khudobin, Bobkov, Pechurskiy are pretty sure shots. Proskuryakov looked good at times, but I heard he might have some disease threatening his career and got dumped by Magnitogorsk(pretty raw). Alistratov I don't see anywhere near the top. But he's still young and could develop.
    On Bobkov: he has this special thing. He plays great in important games, which is maybe the most important virtue for a goaltender. His WJC record is amazing. And this year's finals were too. To come of the bench and stop everything in a final like that is another example of his ability to be at his best when needed most.
