    At the start of the year... I think people ranked the Russian "OV" goalies as:
    1. Bryzgal-OV
    2. Varlam-OV
    3. Nabok-OV
    4. Bobr-OV-sky

    Final ranking... probably the other way around.
    Everybody that fell asleep at the wheel this year and drafted their goalies late turned out OK.

    Guys like Bobrovsky & Corey Crawford... weren't even top 20 drafted goalies in most leagues.

    What a crazy year for goalies.

    Nope... other way around.

    That's what frustrates me so much.

    I burned three of my top 7 picks on my goalies hoping that Quick would at least be very good, Bryz would play somewhat like what he managed at the end of last year, and maybe Varlamov and Colorado would make strides this year.

    Nope.

    I'm never drafting goalies high again.

    I hear ya.
    It's especially tough to look at Yahoo "Rank".

    All of the goalies that haven't played a single minute this year are ranked 250-285.
    Everybody below that rank is therefore considered to be mathematically "worse than not rostering a goalie". (W/GAA/SV%/SO)

    The NEGATIVE CLUB
    #317 Ryan Miller
    #320 Cam Ward
    #412 Semyon Varlamov
    #444 Ondrej Pavelec
    #497 Ilya Bryzgalov
    ...
    and last among goalies...
    #875 Miikka Kipprusoff

    Hey... at least we aren't in the Kipper-Club!

    If that's the case why are your goalies Luongo and Reimer? I get that you are winning with that combination but it strikes me as the anti-thesis to your little theory.

    1) Reimer has been awesome.
    2) My skaters usually grab enough categories by themselves.

    I still needed my ace goalie to come through to win my last playoff match.
