    I'd be surprised if any of the North Division goalies are nominated.


    And I don't really watch much hockey outside of this division, so .. pass.

    It's been a meh year for goalies IMO. Vasilevskiy is probably #1 although I think Hellebucyk is right there and has probably the better case given the defense he has to play in front of. I'd probably put MAF in the 3rd spot.

    I don't really understand where you are getting that from. Vasi, lankinen, Etc. Are putting up insane numbers, while goalie's like Demko, Helle, etc. Are carrying their team. Then you have guys like Grub, Varlamov who have been outstanding.

    Maybe because there are more back to backs so starters aren't playing as much? But overall, I think it's about the same as a normal season.

    Vasilevskiy
    Fleury
    Varlamov/Grubauer

    Demko is earning it but the Canucks are kind of tanking his shot at it (both puns intended).

    MAF will get it I think. He has strong numbers but also the most "feel good" narrative (counted out old goalie shows he still has it).

    Vasilevskiy seems like a lock at this point.

    If anyone's interested Hellebuyck has been amazing again although his stats are slightly worse than last year.

    If voting was held today I'd be shocked if Vasilevskiy and Fleury weren't top 2, and Grubauer would likely be 3, but I could see a bone thrown to a guy with poor team defense (Demko, Hellebuyck, etc)

    Three guys have started more than 20 games and have a GAA less than 2:

    Grubauer
    Vasilevskiy
    Fleury

    I think it is between Grubauer and Vasilevskiy. Grubauer leads all goalies in time on ice and shut outs. Vasilevskiy leads in wins.

    Lankinen is definitely not putting up insane numbers.


    He has <0.890 SV% in 3 of the 4 games since this tweet.

    Vasi by default

    runners up:

    1. Grubauer
    2. Fleury


    I’d choose Grubauer because former cap + one more shutout that Flowers

    It's not really a fair race, Vasilevskiy gets to play Dallas 8 times this year.

    Vasilevski will win it but is Saros gonna get the nomination? Who else is there? Grubauer?

    He may not make the cut but if someone ever deserved an honorable mention, it would be Mike Smith.

    39 years old and playing his ass off, 18-6-2 record (has to be up there for win percentage), .924 save percentage. No one on this board called that going into the season.

    When this thread was started a month ago I was looking at Saros's numbers that looked good, but figured neither he nor Nashville would likely last, just a hot streak. But a month later - he's starting to look really, really good imo.

    And unlike some of the other contenders (Vasi, Grubauer, Fleury - Varlamov even) - he isn't playing on a team whose been a top team, and near top of their division all year long. His strong play really helped Nashville turn their season around, and probably soon qualify for playoffs. Nashville was in close to last place of division and very far from playoffs as late as March 1st. They've staged a hell of a comeback, and Saros is now near the top in all major goalie stats.

    I think he has a shot at not only a nomination, but to win.

    If I had to guess, the biggest contenders, in order are:

    Vasi
    Saros
    Fleury
    Varlamov (think he gets hurt by NYI's reputation as defense first team)

    Just to clear up some things here: it’s not a nomination. There’s top3 which is announced - but at that point the winner is already decided (by voting).

    I think 4 goalies deserve to be in top 3. Vasi, Fleury, Grubauer and Varlamov.
