Top Fantasy 50 Prospect Goaltenders – Spring, 2019

by Dobber on March 20, 2019

The top 50 prospect goaltenders to own in keeper leagues – spring edition!

 

I don't use the same formulas and variables used in the regular top goalie list – more emphasis should be on upside here and less emphasis on team strength (because – who knows how strong/weak the team will be by the time the prospect arrives?), and with prospects the 'ideal age' to own them should be different than the ideal age to own an established goalie. We also need to consider the balance between a young backup goalie with a lower ceiling but is "in the show now" versus the unproven 19-year-old who has elite upside but is four years away from getting a sniff and may not ever get to the NHL.

Unlike my policy with the Keeper Goaltenders list (posting it tomorrow), for this list I would emphasis the ranking more than the tiers (since most of these goalies are in the fifth or sixth tier). As always, and this is important with all my rankings lists… +/- 5.0 rating points the players are equal.

(*Note: I caught a mistake for Copley so rather than redo and repost the entire chart, I just changed his rating and ranking)
