Fantasy Hockey: The NHL's Top 10 Goalies for a Keeper League

Welcome to part three of a three part series on top NHL players for a fantasy hockey keeper league.

In parts one and two we looked at the NHL's top 25 forwards and top 15 defencemen.  In part three we turn to perhaps the most critical postion on your fantasy hockey roster, the NHL's top 10 goalies.

There are a number of factors to consider when selecting a backstop for your keeper league team. These include:

  1. Past performance
  2. Future potential
  3. The team they play for
  4. Durability
  5. Talent
  6. Age

While a goalie like Tim Thomas, for instance, fulfills many of the criteria above, he would be a poor choice in a fantasy hockey keeper league.

Don't get me wrong, if you are lucky enough to have Thomas as your netminder in any fantasy hockey league this season he will help you enormously. However, given his age and the fact that he will likely split more and more time with Tuukka Rask going forward, if you do draft Thomas you would be well advised to handcuff him to Rask.

Starting at the top of the list, here are the NHL's top 10 goalies for a keeper league.
