NHL Fantasy 101: Ranking the Top 20 Fantasy Goaltenders, Part Three

Todd CordellCorrespondent IJuly 30, 2010

Welcome to the third edition of the top 20 fantasy goaltenders. Today I will be ranking 11-15.

11. Cam Ward (CAR)

Last year's stats: Wins: 18 / GAA: 2.69 / SV%: .916

The Hurricanes didn't have a very good season last year, but with a healthy Cam Ward and Eric Staal and the additions of Anton Babchuk and Joe Corvo on the blue line, they should do just fine.

12. Jonathan Quick (LA)

Last year's stats: Wins: 39 / GAA: 2.54 / SV%: .907

In my opinion, he is a good goalie on a very good team. With Jonathan Bernier most likely serving as backup this season, Quick will not get as many starts. Quick will be good but not great. Expect 32 to 37 wins this season.

13. Jonas Hiller (ANA)

Last year's stats: Wins: 30 / GAA: 2.73 / SV%: .918

Hiller missed about 30 starts last season due to "Giggy" and injury problems. Now that "Giggy" is off in TO and Hiller is healthy, he can win 35 to 40 games and show you that he can be the goalie he was for Switzerland in the Olympics.

14. Jaroslav Halak (STL)

Last year's stats: Wins: 26 / GAA: 2.40 / SV%: .924

Halak plays on an average Blues team but now will have the opportunity to be the No. 1 guy. I am sure he will thrive on that and keep his goals against average and save percentage similar to last season. I expect 35 wins from Halak this season.

15. Steve Mason (CBJ)

Last year's stats: Wins: 20 / GAA: 3.06 / SV%: .901

It was an "off" year, to say the least, for Steve Mason last season. I expect he will be much better this season with this young and talented Blue Jackets team. With Brassard, Voracek, and Filatov all evolving into better players, they should score more goals which will help Mason breath back there. Expect about 30 to 35 wins from Mason next season.


This concludes my fantasy goalie rankings 11-15, enjoy.
