He has never been less than number one in my four NHL goalie rankings and is distancing himself from the pack. It is also amazing how Josh Harding, who just seemed like a fluke in November, is still ranked number 2. The Team Canada goaltending situation also got a little crazier the past couple weeks. Steve Mason and Ben Bishop’s unexpected strong play is slowly putting them into Olympic talks. Other non-invitees Marc-Andre Fleury and Jonathan Bernier are also showing signs of promise. Here is this bi-week’s rankings, with their November 8 rankings in brackets:
