Most NHL teams will only go as far as their goal tending will take them. No better case of this was last year’s Boston Bruins.
Tim Thomas was amazing during the playoffs, making impossible saves, frustrating the opponents and allowing his team to make it to the promised land.
Goal tenders can steal games their team had no business winning or let in seven goals some summer evening in Boston and ruin your dreams of glory which still cause you to twitch late at night.
While it is still a team game, your team is not going any where without a quality back stop.
As the NHL season looms closer and closer, the media and loud mouthed know-it-alls are beginning to make predictions as to who is going to win it all. To determine who that team might be it’s worth looking at who they have between the pipes.
This list ranks the top ten goalies going into next season. Keep in mind, the list looks forward to next year, and is not a recap of the top ten from last year.
Without a doubt I have either left off your guy or not ranked your guy high enough, so please, feel free to tell me how wrong I am in the comments section.
