One thing that makes pro sports so tough is how much competition there is for jobs. Each year, a new crop of eager and talented players comes to challenge existing players at every level for roster spots. Here is a look at the NHL's 20 most exiting goalie prospects.
To qualify for this list, a player cannot have played more than a handful of games at the NHL level and must be considered a prospect by scouts, coaches and hockey people.
A player's long-term potential is the most important factor in making this list. Some prospects may be ready sooner, but how will they fare over the course of their careers?
Feel free to comment and mention any players you feel deserve a spot on this list. As always, indicate why you feel your choice should make the list and who you would remove from the list if you added the player you chose.
