Welcome to the second edition of the top 20 fantasy goaltenders. Today I will be ranking 6-10.
I have decided I am only going to rank the top 20, as when I get into the 20s it will be harder because some teams are still looking for goalies or have not decided who will start.
6. Roberto Luongo (VAN)
Last year's stats: Wins: 40 / GAA: 2.57 / SV%: .913
I personally think Luongo is overrated but when you have the Sedin's up front and a defensive core like he does, it is hard to see him not winning 40+ games.
7. Ilya Bryzgalov (PHX)
Last year's stats: Wins: 42 / GAA: 2.29 / SV%: .920
Bryzgalov was one of the best goalies in the NHL last season no doubt, but the Coyotes lost more players than they gained so far in the offseason so it is hard to see him performing as well as last season.
8. Craig Anderson (COL)
Last year's stats: Wins: 38 / GAA: 2.64 / SV%: .917
Where do you think Luongo should be ranked?
Anderson was one of the biggest stories last season and I think he will be again this year. With all of the young players in Colorado improving, it is hard not to expect bigger and better things from Anderson.
9. Miikka Kiprusoff (CGY)
Last year's stats: Wins: 35 / GAA: 2.31 / SV%: .920
Regardless of how good the Flames are this season you know the man in net will be. If the Flames' defensemen can play like they were supposed to last season, Kipper could hit close to 40 wins.
10. Tuukka Rask (BOS)
Last year's stats: Wins: 22 / GAA: 1.97 / SV%: .931
No doubt Rask will get more starts than last season. The only problem is that Tim Thomas is still there, and the Bruins are not going to let him rot. If they had, say, Andrew Raycroft as their backup instead of Thomas, Rask would be in the 5/6/7 area in my rankings.
This concludes part two of my fantasy goalie rankings, stay tuned for more.
