Below are the first three tiers. I posted the an additional two tiers over at Goalie Post here (as well as a few bonus names to watch). Goalies within the same tier are generally considered equal value, with varying degrees of reliability, upside, track record, wait time (if a prospect) and proneness to injury.
The only goalies who are completely safe owns, and elite owns. They’ll give you plenty of wins, fewer losses, and good peripheral stats. They generally don’t get hurt, and are fairly consistent. Yes, this Tier is a small one.
Either clear-cut number one goalies, but on weaker teams. Or they are in a shared situation right now, but with tremendous upside in the future. Or they are on top teams but have a shaky track record of late. There is some risk here but also some upside.
